If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’d know that a lot cricket legends played a friendly T20 match on a frozen lake in Swiss Alps recently. Virender Sehwag and Shahif Afridi captained the two sides and faced-off in a thrilling match that hit every 90’s kid with massive nostalgia.
After the match, Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi spent some time with his cricket fans and clicked photographs. A group of Indian fans with a folded flag asked him to pose for a selfie. But Afridi told one of the girls to open the flag first. “Flag seedha karo,” said Afridi before posing for the photo. This tiny gesture is winning hearts of Indians and Pakistanis.
