The Pakistan Cricket Board has published a video on Instagram titled “Afridi Meets Two Indian Cricketers Who Are Questioning About His Ailment” in anticipation of the Asia Cup 2022. In the clip, two Indian cricketers can be seen seeing Afridi and inquiring about his injury.
The Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan will take place on Sunday, and the predominant sentiment among Indian cricket fans is that of vengeance. The “Men in Blue” were eliminated from the competition in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup after suffering a defeat at the hands of their bitter rivals in Dubai the previous year. Fans in India are holding out hope that their team can redeem themselves by winning their opening match of the Asia Cup against Pakistan.
The great pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s first bowling stint, during which he dismissed India’s top order, was one of the most important contributors to Pakistan’s victory the previous year.
Afridi is now sidelined owing to a knee injury that he got while on tour in Sri Lanka. As a result, he will be unable to participate in the upcoming match. However, he is now in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where all of the teams are exercising in advance of the competition. He is a member of the squad.
A great number of videos and photographs depicting players from opposing clubs shaking hands and conversing with one another have recently been shared widely on social media.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has published a video on Instagram showing a number of Indian cricketers speaking with Afridi about his injury. The video can be found here. First leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal came face to face with Afridi, and the two of them shook hands and laughed together after they introduced themselves.
Following that, the legendary Indian batsman Virat Kohli approached him and asked about his injury. The two of them may be seen having a lengthy conversation on serious topics. Later on, Afridi is seen interacting with people like Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul, among others.
Fans have expressed a great deal of admiration for an older video in which Kohli approached and shook hands with the captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, Babar Azam.
The competition will get underway this coming Saturday with a match between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.
