Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi and his organization are running a campaign to help the people in need amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, his playmates Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, and Shoaib Akhtar came forward to support the batsman in this noble cause. Along with sharing the awareness video, Shoaib Akhtar didn’t forget to pull the leg of Shahid Afridi for not contacting him directly.
The people across the world are facing tough times right now. The conditions are not appropriate for a peaceful living due to the coronavirus outbreak. To stop the further spread of the virus, the governments across the world have enforced lockdown in their country. This has adversely affected the poor and underprivileged daily wage workers. So, Shahid Afridi’s organization is helping such people in Pakistan.
Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh extended his support to Afridi by urging people to donate money for the needy. He recorded a video for the same.
Further, he also nominated Yuvraj Singh, Wasim Akram, and Shoaib Akhtar to support the cause. Later, Yuvraj Singh also posted a video to support the campaign by Shahid Afridi.
Shoaib Akhtar didn’t take much time to accept Harbhajan’s request. He soon shared a clip requesting people to help the nation in these testing times. However, he also took a hilarious jibe on former teammate Shahid Afridi stating that he would have made the video even if he would have asked him directly instead of getting him nominated from an Indian cricketer.
His post read, “Yaar @SAfridiOfficial tu khud bhi keh deta toh main bana deta video for such a great cause :)@harbhajan_singh se nominate kerwaya Thanks bhajji for being a part of this. Lala is doing a great job on this. Plz help @SAFoundationN as much as you can.#DonateKaroNa#HopeNotOut”
