Navjot Sidhu meets Shahid Afridi ahead of India vs Pakistan match; their conversation wins hearts

India vs Pakistan match: Many former cricketers are currently in the United States for the T20 World Cup 2024, and fans are witnessing pleasant reunions between them. Former Indian cricket team batter Navjot Singh Sidhu had an unplanned encounter with former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, and the video of their meeting has gone viral on social media. 

Both were in New York ahead of the highly anticipated Group A showdown between India and Pakistan. Both renowned cricketers were delighted to see each other, and their conversation has won many hearts ahead of the big match.


In the video, Navjot Singh Sidhu can be seen saying , "Handsome Afridi! Have you seen anyone smarter than him?"

To this Afridi replies, "Paaji ke saath humne bohut cricket kheli hai ji (We have played a lot of cricket with him)".

"Tumhare paas aise bande kahaan chale gaye (Where did these kind of players go?" Sidhu says.

India vs Pakistan

India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series in nearly a decade, and the only time they meet is during international games. That is why when these traditional rivals square off, it is a big deal for fans and experts all across the world.

India began their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign with a comfortable 8-wicket victory over Ireland, with captain Rohit Sharma scoring a tough half-century. There were more positives for India, as their fast bowlers appeared in excellent form and were able to keep Ireland under 100.

On the other side, Pakistan suffered a defeat against the United States in their first Group A match, which was decided in the Super Over. Pakistan had a mini-collapse at the top of the batting order, and their bowling performance was as disappointing.
