Shahid Afridi is the most loved foreign cricketer in India and it became evident once more after a video recently surfaced on the internet and went viral.
In the video, the former Pakistan skipper could be seen posing for photos and signing autographs for his fans in Switzerland.
The legendary all-rounder was currently in St Moritz for the Ice Cricket T20 Challenge. It was a two-day tournament where the two teams – Diamonds XI and Royals XI played two games on February 8 and 9.
Former India opener Virender Sehwag was leading the Diamonds while Afridi was captaining the Royals. The Royals clinched the series by winning both the games comfortably.
After the event, thousands of fans were seen standing on the sidelines for a glimpse of Shahid Afridi and the all-rounder did not disappoint them. And amidst all the signing and posing, one beautiful incident was witnessed. Among the thousands of fans, there was one girl who was standing with the Indian flag.
Given the tension between India and Pakistan, one would have thought that Afridi would ignore him. However, to everyone’s surprise, Afridi obliged and even asked the girl to straighten up the Indian flag.
