The legend of Shahid Afridi will be best remembered for the way he smashed Indian bowlers all round the park. Boom Boom Afridi could take on the best of the bowlers with ease without breaking a sweat.
Post his retirement (which he announced ‘n’ number of times) Shahid Afridi is still winning hearts across the border despite of the political tensions between India and Pakistan.
Quite recently, Shahid took part in an exhibition match at St. Moritz besides yesteryear greats such as Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Lasith Malinga and others.
Post the match, Shahid was seen posting for the shutterbugs with his fans. One Indian fan was holding India’s flag upside down while posing for a photo with the legend himself – Shahid Afridi. In a noble gesture, Shahid pointed this out immediately and told the fan to hold the fan correctly. The video went viral within seconds and Shahid touched hearts across the border.
This gesture is indeed overwhelming considering the rising tensions between both India and Pakistan.
Cricketer R.P Singh too praised Shahid’s touching gesture on the micro-blogging site – Twitter.
Shahid, at the event, was quoted saying; “I believe as cricketers we can set examples of how relationship between individuals can be a template for relationship between countries. I think after Pakistan, the two countries where I have received most love and respect are India and Australia.”
