Afridi congratulates new dad Bumrah
In another instance of the growing camaraderie between the India and Pakistan players, Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi came up with a heartwarming gesture when he congratulated new dad Jasprit Bumrah after play was suspended on Sunday in their Asia Cup Super Fours match in Colombo.
In the heartwarming video shared by the Pakistan Cricket Board Twitter, Afridi can be seen congratulating Bumrah for the good news to which the Indian pacer replied with thank you.
The 29-year-old Bumrah had left the Indian camp in Sri Lanka last Sunday to be with his wife in Mumbai, Sanjana Ganesan for the birth of their child, henceforth missing out on India's game against Nepal on last Monday.
Afridi passed on a gift to Bumrah's newborn baby as the two met at the R Premadasa Stadium before heading back to the team hotel. He wished good health and happiness for the India star's newborn baby.
Jasprit Bumrah was filled with joy by the gesture as he called it 'very sweet'.
