WATCH : Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi’s friendly interaction with Indian fans


On June 8, a day before Pakistan’s crucial 2024 T20 World Cup Group A match against their longtime rivals India, Shaheen Afridi interacted with a number of Indian fans in New York. The match, set to take place at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, is a must-win for Pakistan’s ‘Men in Green’ after their nail-biting Super Over loss to the USA in their tournament opener.

During a friendly encounter on the streets of New York, Shaheen Afridi shared a light-hearted moment with some enthusiastic Indian supporters. One fan humorously asked the Pakistani fast bowler to take it easy on Indian cricket stars Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the upcoming match. This playful request left Shaheen in stitches, showcasing the amiable and good-natured spirit of the interaction.

As he walked through the bustling streets of New York, Shaheen Afridi found himself amidst a crowd of lively Indian fans, just a day before the much-awaited 2024 T20 World Cup clash between Pakistan and India.

In this delightful exchange, an Indian fan jokingly pleaded with the ace pacer to spare Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli during the high-stakes game on June 9. Shaheen couldn’t help but laugh at the request, clearly enjoying the camaraderie and friendly banter with the Indian fans.

Shaheen Afridi, who had recently bowled wicketless figures of 0-33 in Pakistan’s surprising defeat to the USA in Texas, is now gearing up for a critical match. The ‘Men in Green,’ still looking to get on the scoreboard in the tournament, will take on Rohit Sharma’s Indian team at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on June 9, with the match starting at 8:00 PM IST.
