Shahid Afridi gives a peek into his relationship with Virat Kohli

Shahid Afridi gives a peek into his relationship with Virat Kohli

Afridi - who led Royals in two exhibition cricket matches against Sehwag's Diamonds in Switzerland's alpine town St. Moritz - came across an Indian girl who wanted to take picture with him.

This respectful gesture by Afridi is winning hearts. "Boom Boom" Afridi showed true sportsmanship after a match when he asked an Indian fan to keep the Indian flag open while clicking a photograph.

Former Pakistani cricket team captain Shahid Afridi was known for his explosive batting and even held the world record for scoring the fastest One Day International century.

Amid constant cross-border tension between India and Pakistan, Afridi's gesture has helped him win hearts. I have no problem with aggression if it is a controlled one. Afridi told PTI that his cordial relation with the right-hand batsman can't be defined by political situation. It's not that we get a chance to speak a lot but from time to time, he would drop in a message and I would do the same.

This is to notice that recently some former cricketers played cricket in ice valleys of Switzerland.

"I believe as cricketers we can set examples of how relationship between individuals can be a template for relationship between countries".

During the photo and autograph session, Afridi was moving around the crowd while posing with his ardent fans when he reached an Indian fan holding a folded tricolour flag.

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.
