Sohail joins an elite group of international cricketers who have had ghostly experiences. Just last year England paceman Stuart Broad admitted he asked for a change of rooms while staying at the Langham Hotel in London, an institution infamously famous as a ghost hot spot, reported to have as many as seven supernatural beings on the premises, including a German doctor who committed suicide after murdering his wife while on honeymoon.

“During the Sri Lanka Test I had to move rooms,“ Broad had told a leading daily from England.
“It was so hot in the room I just couldn’t sleep. All of a sudden the taps in the bathroom came on for no reason. I turned the lights on and the taps turned themselves off. Then when I turned the lights off again the taps came on. It was very weird.It really freaked me out. I ended up asking to move rooms. Bealey (Broad’s girlfriend) was pretty spooked, too, and I know Moeen Ali’s other half won’t stay there because she’s so frightened of the ghosts. Ben Stokes has had some problems sleeping as well. He’s on the third floor, which is where a lot of the issues are. Something weird is going on.“ Australia allrounder Shane Watson fled to the room of teammate Brett Lee after becoming spooked in his own room at the Lumley Castle Hotel in England in 2005.

A Pakistani cricketer on tour in New Zealand was hit for six when he saw what he believed was a ghost haunting him in his hotel room, the team manager said.
Haris Sohail was convinced a “supernatural“ presence was haunting him when he awoke Saturday night to find his bed moving, team manager Naveed Akram Cheema said.Cheema told media that Sohail called a member of the coaching staff who arrived to find the 26year-old all-rounder “visibly shaken“. Sohail, a left-arm spinner and middle-order batsman, spent the rest of the night in the coach’s room at the Rydges Latimer Hotel in Christchurch before being moved to another room.The cricketer tweeted on Sunday, “Allah always answers your duas (prayers)“.One of his followers tweeted back: “It’s nice to hear that you recovered from that incident in New Zealand.May Allah protect you.“Another replied: “You’ve faced down Shaitaan (the devil), the Kiwis should be easy. Best wishes.“

“We think it was the fever that caused it (but) the player still believes his bed was shaken by something and it was a supernatural something,“ Cheema said, adding that Sohail had been examined by the team doctor and was found to be in good health.Sohail was reportedly unable to train for two days after the incident and scored six when batting at No.4 yesterday against a New Zealand President’s XI.The 4.5-star Rydges Latimer has been rebuilt since the 2011 earthquake that devastated Christchurch and claimed 185 lives.There have been no overnight earthquakes recorded in Christchurch since the Pakistan team arrived in the city.
