We all know how aggressive and swift was Shahid Afridi on the field, being a prominent Pakistani Captain and a fine hitman one cannot simply deny in admiring this former player. Having played 20 years in Pakistan National team, we can assume that Afridi is quite a master of the game.
He has been a pillar of strength for Pakistan’s claim to glory in international cricket and one of the finest all-rounders ever produced by Pakistan. Afridi enjoys a huge fan following not only in Pakistan but also in other parts of the world, especially India. Time and again, he has shown his love and respect to Indian cricketers & he too has been getting a lot of affection in return.
There might have been bitter moments between Afridi and Indian players on the field, but he has always been an upright man off the field. Off the field, he has often shared a good rapport with Indian cricketers and has never hesitated from appreciating Indian players. He was recently spotted heaping praises at Kohli and that shows why he is loved so much even in our nation.
Shahid Afridi is the most loved foreign cricketer in India and it became evident once more after a video recently surfaced on the internet and went viral. Our respect for him has increased 100 times after watching this video.
Afridi is currently in Switzerland playing ice cricket and even Virender Sehwag and lot of other veterans are a part of this league which is the first of its kind. As we know Afridi has a dashing personality and a huge fan following, his fans are always eager to get a glimpse of him and to get a picture clicked with him.
The same happened in Switzerland, he was surrounded by fans who were dying to a get a picture clicked with him. He could be seen posing for photos and signing autographs for his fans. But there is one moment from Afridi that won our hearts.
There was a girl who asked him for a selfie; she has an Indian flag in her hand but was not holding it properly. Shahid Afridi was so particular that he first asked the girl to hold the flag straight in a dignified manner and then obliged her demand for a picture.

Given the tension between India and Pakistan, Afridi could have easily ignored it, but he showed his respect for Indian flag and every Indian is loving it.
