Giving a response after his video went viral, Adil said that thank you all for sharing the video. Peace only. No nonsensical wars and spread the love.
Besides the Pakistani fan singing the Indian national anthem during the India-Pakistan match, there were a couple of other instances in the game which proved that regardless of whatever is the situation at the border, it should not hamper the game spirit. In another such instance during the match, a photo of Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who was tying the shoelace of a Pakistan batsman, had also gone viral as fans of both the teams appreciated the gesture shown by the Indian player. And now, a Pakistani man singing the Indian national anthem is just winning millions of hearts.
It’s a no deny fact that any match between India-Pakistan, whether it’s cricket, hockey or any other sport, emotions are always high on both the sides, given the challenging political relationship which both the countries face in reality. Amid these circumstances, witnessing these positive gestures really gives a break from the negative developments which keeps happening at the border.
Talking about the match, it was a day for the Indian team and fans as India thrashed Pakistan by 8 wickets. Pakistan had won the toss and opted to bat first but its batting order put up a poor show. Chasing a total of 163, Team India accomplished the task in just 29 overs, at the expense of two wickets.
