MS Dhoni’s Pakistani Fan Steals The Show At Melbourne Cricket Ground

At a time when fans from both India and Pakistan have faced dire consequences for showing their love for players from the opposite country, a Pakistani fan has set an example that is garnering praise from all the quarters. During the ongoing Test between Australia and Pakistan at the MCG, a fan was spotted wearing Pakistan cricket team’s ODI jersey with Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s name and jersey number (7) on the back.

Quite expectedly, the gesture won the fans over and they took to social media to appreciate it. Here are some of the best reactions:

The incident will act as a fresh breath of air for fans of both countries who have witnessed tensions escalating between the arch rivals due to political reasons. Furthermore, a couple of incidents happened in the recent past that will compel fans to think at least twice before showing their love for any player from the other nation.

Just around a week ago, an Indian fan was arrested in Assam for wearing a shirt bearing former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s name. Previously, a Virat Kohli fan hailing from Pakistan was arrested was sentenced to 10 years in prison for hoisting the Indian flag on the roof of his house. He was later granted bail.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
