Shaheen Afridi’s Heartwarming Gesture Towards Bumrah Goes Viral
In a heartwarming gesture during the Asia Cup 2023 Super Four clash between India and Pakistan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, the Pakistani pace sensation, presented a special gift to Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah. The heartwarming moment occurred after the match had to be moved to a reserve day due to persistent rain, and it carried extra significance because Bumrah had recently become a father.
Jasprit Bumrah had returned home from Sri Lanka ahead of India’s Asia Cup match against Nepal to be present for the birth of his first child with his wife, Sanjana Ganesan. He joyfully announced the birth of his son, Angad Jasprit Bumrah, on social media, expressing his happiness and excitement for this new chapter in their lives.
The Asia Cup 2023 Super Four clash between India and Pakistan had witnessed an electrifying start, with Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill putting on a spectacular partnership of 121 runs. However, rain played spoilsport, and the match had to be halted after 24.1 overs, with India sitting comfortably at 147/2.
