Although India and Pakistan are neighbours and they may have a lot of similarities, there are many issues on which they do not agree with each other and strain in the relation of both the countries is clearly apparent.
The same tension is also visible in few cricket matches that they play in the tournaments but still many times, we have seen that the players of both the teams maintain friendly relations with one another.
Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistani all-rounder, is getting praises and appreciation from Pakistani as well as Indian fans for a sweet gesture that he showed towards the Indian flag.
Shahid was in Switzerland where a cricket match was played on ice between his team and former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag’s team. After the match, many people wanted to take selfies with him and he was trying to oblige everyone. There was one girl who was not holding the Indian flag properly but she wanted to get clicked with Afridi with Indian flag in foreground.
Shahid had the option to refuse as some people back home might not like him getting clicked with the Indian flag but he agreed and asked the girl to spread and hold the Indian flag properly before getting clicked.
