Champions Trophy 2017 is over and India is playing against West Indies right now, but the memories of the championship are still fresh in the mind of players. No matter how intense they look on the field, but outside the match, they always remain friendly and respectful to each other; something i.e. a big sign of sportsmanship.
Pakistani Team captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed has become the hero of his country after he led the team towards victory in the final against India. The young cricket star is enjoying the limelight and attention like never before, but the best thing is he has maintained the sanity.
Sarfaraz Ahmed has been giving lots of interviews these days, but unlike the media would expect him to do, in none of his interviews he uttered bad words about Indian team. In fact, in a recent one, he praised Indian wicket keeper batsman and former captain MS Dhoni for clicking a picture with his son Abdullah. Here’s what he said-
“I was sitting in the lobby with my family. We were sharing the same hotel so once I saw MS, I went after him and asked for a picture of him and my son Abdullah. Once he grows up, he would have fond memories of him, lapped on one of the greats of the game.”
