We all know that the rivalry between India and Pakistan is a tense point. However, players of both nations share some deep friendships at a time. One such example was shown by Indian cricket team.
A few days ago, Pakistani journalist Faizan Lakhani uploaded an image of Virat Kohli’s jersey on Twitter which was signed by Indian cricket team for Shahid Afridi, as a retirement gift. The jersey had the signatures of Kohli, Ashish Nehra, Suresh Raina, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, among others. The jersey had a message which said, “Best wishes, always a pleasure playing against you.”
