In an earlier interview with ESPNcricinfo, Shan Masood had spoken about his sister’s ailment. 

“I don’t think there’s a lot of awareness in Pakistan about children like my sister,” Masood had said. “She’s a special child. Her physical development is completely fine. She’s 30 years old, but mentally she hasn’t developed one bit,” he had said. 

“She’s like a newborn child. She couldn’t get a dependent visa, she couldn’t fly to England and live with my parents, so my parents were quite divided in that my mother had to keep going back and forth and my dad was running two houses at once, just to make sure my sister was fine. I just hope she realizes what we do and that it makes her proud as well,” Shan had said.
