Shahid Afridi wins hearts of Indian fans with an fantastic gesture

Virat Kohli Shahid Afridi India cricket

A girl approached Afridi for a selfie was holding an Indian national flag wrongly or in simple words, the flag was folded. Afridi told PTI that his cordial relation with the right-hand batsman can't be defined by political situation.

Afridi also mentioned that Virat Kohli has always shown respect and even signed a jersey for his foundation which aims to provide clean drinking water to the weaker sections of the society. I have no problem with aggression if it is a controlled one. I congratulated him recently when I came to know he was getting married.

Apart from Pakistani Cricketers and Virender Sehwag, other former Cricketers from around the World including Jacques Kallis, Andrew Symonds, Daniel Vettori, Graeme Smith, Micheal Hussey, Grant Elliott, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Ramesh Powar, Nathan McCullum, Lasith Malinga, Owais Shah, Monty Panesar, Mahela Jayawardene, Matt Prior, Aiden Andrews, Mithun Manhas, Zaheer Khan, Muhammad Kaif, Ajit Agarkar and Rohan Jain also took part in Ice Cricket.

The 37-year-old, who retired from global cricket in February 2017, had led Royals XI to a 2-0 win in the two-match T20 series on ice against Virender Sehwag's Diamonds XI.

"I believe as cricketers we can set examples of how the relationship between individuals can be a template for the relationship between countries".

"Now suddenly, you can not change the inherent nature of a person".

For someone, who was a maverick during his worldwide career, Afridi loves Kohli's aggression and believes that supporting juniors in crisis situations has also helped him in earning respect from youngsters. That is grossly unfair.

Shahid Afridi who enjoys a significant fan following in India lauded Virat Kohli by saying that his greatest asset is that he can take the team along.

Afridi was a different man at different times. Following the match, Afridi happily obliged request of fans to pose for the photos. Praising the Indian team for their brilliant efforts against the Proteas, Shahid Afridi said India have played wonderful cricket in tough conditions.
