World renowned former Pakistani Cricketer Shahid Afridi earned enormous appreciation especially from his Indian fans after the flamboyant all-rounder paid respect to the Indian flag in Switzerland wherein he was Captaining Royals XI Team in St. Moritz Ice Cricket 2018.
Shahid Afridi was signing autographs and taking selfies with fans among the spectators outside the boundary line but as one Indian lady spectator requested him for a selfie, he asked her to at first straighten the Indian flag.
“Ye flag seedha karo na”, Shahid Afridi said to the Indian lady holding the half-wrapped Indian flag.
