Haris Sohail, Pakistan's promising all-rounder, forced the management to shift his room after complaining of supernatural presence in his hotel room in New Zealand. Pakistan are in New Zealand to play two one-day internationals (ODI) and warm-up games before the World Cup in New Zealand and Australia.

According to media reports, Sohail woke up scared in the night, insisting that there was a supernatural presence in his room. By the time the team authorities could change his room after talking to the hotel management, the youngster had developed a high fever.

In the past, Pakistani players have been caught in controversy due to their own behaviour, but such an incident involving supernatural forces has never been experienced by any player.

Pakistan lost their first warm-up match on Sunday despite Misbah-ul-Haq scoring a century against New Zealand President XI.

Misbah will be rested for the second warm-up game confirmed a team official as he the management didn’t want to risk him as he has just recovered from injury.

The official also said Haris Sohail, who didn’t play the first match, and paceman, Bilawal Bhatti would play in the second warm-up game on Tuesday. However, Yasir Shah and Muhammad Irfan will not take part in the warm-up game, but may be involved in the first one-day international against the Kiwis on January 31.
