Sarfaraz Ahmed reveals why he wanted his son to be clicked with MS Dhoni

Posted On

Ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy final played between Pakistan and India at the Oval, former MS Dhoni was pictured carrying Sarfaraz Ahmed‘s adorable baby boy Abdullah.


Sarfaraz’s son was born in February this year and the Pakistani captain had revealed that he is a great admirer of Dhoni and also idolizes him.


Well, Sarfaraz has become the hero of his country after he led his team towards victory in the final against India. He is enjoying the limelight and attention like never before, but the best thing is he has maintained the sanity.

He has been giving lots of interviews these days, but unlike the media would expect him to do, in none of his interviews he said bad words about Indian team.

In fact, in a recent interview, he praised Dhoni for clicking a picture with his son.


Here’s what he said:

“I was sitting in the lobby with my family. We were sharing the same hotel so once I saw MS, I went after him and asked for a picture of him and my son Abdullah. Once he grows up, he would have fond memories of him, lapped on one of the greats of the game.”
