The matches between India and Pakistan can create pressure on the players. However, the cricketers are friends off the field.
There is mutual respect and friendship among the players of both teams. Several players talked to Shaheen Afridi recently.
The likes of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal were seen talking to the injured player, who is traveling with the Pakistan squad. Afridi suffered a right knee ligament injury while fielding during the first Test against Sri Lanka.
Babar reflected on the Indian players’ behavior: “I was touched by how they (India players) met and spoke to Shaheen Afridi during Thursday’s training session.
“The visuals of the players talking to each other show the friendship they enjoy. But we will play as rivals on the match day to win the important game.”
