When anyone talks about cricket in Pakistan, India and Pakistan shares a tough relationship with each other, but outside the cricket industry, both teams share a generous bond and it is evident from their gestures outside the field.
Recently, Our Boom Boom announced his retirement from International cricket and it was so emotional for his team and his fans. Many celebrities and fans sent their love to Afridi, but team India had a unique approach in sending out their respect and best wishes for Afridi.
The Indian cricket sensation Virat Kohli, a popular and versatile batsman from India, gifted Shahid Afridi his T-Shirt complete with his and his teammate’s signatures and a message that read ‘always a pleasure playing against you’.
Virat Kohli’s and Indian team’s gesture shows that how much they respect Shahid Afridi. It reveals the real sportsmanship.
Both teams have faced intense moments on the field and Our Afridi has been a part of these moments for almost two decades. He has been a sole reason for many people to stick to the cricket match.
