Virat Kohli's Gift To Shahid Afrid Is Proof That There Is Still Aman Ki Asha

By Iman Zia | 3 Aug, 2017

Kohli has always been incredibly gentlemanly with Pakistani cricketers, and his kindness has been evoked many a time, be it always up for a quick photo with Pakistani cricketers’ little ones, or with banter with Shoaib Malik…and even giving a shirt to Afridi on one occasion.


Virat Kohli and Shahid Afridi ‘s budding friendship has transcended time

Their interactions, both, on and off the pitch, are incredibly heartwarming.



In a recent testimony to their sturdy friendship, Kohli sent over a signed bat to Afridi’s Foundation for the underprivileged

Afridi took to Twitter to express his gratitude at such a lovely gesture. The bat will be auctioned off in bid to raise money for the Thar hospital, which Shahid Afridi’s Foundation will be collectively building with Engro.


Kohli quickly responded to ‘Shahid bhai‘ and heartily wished Afridi the utmost best


Indian and Pakistani fans coalesced to reply to this heartfelt gesture




With a few making valid points, we want a selfie


With Pakistanis thanking the humble Indian player




Fans also poured their adoration under Afridi’s tweet



Including Indian fans who took this opportunity to express their appreciation of Afridi too


It was a moment of clear clarity amidst the piling tension that always manages to suffocate ties with both countries




What did you think of this lovely gesture between the two legends?
