India send Afridi heart-warming farewell gift

Earlier, In order to show their respect to the retiring all-rounder, Kohli sent a shirt with “To Shahid Bhai, best wishes, always a pleasure playing against you” scribbled in his handwriting in addition to signatures from the entire Indian team.

Let’s hope that the new-found love between the two teams spills into the hearts of the governments of the two countries as well and resumption of cricketing ties are allowed so that we fans of cricket get to see both the teams in action against one another.
