KARACHI: Pakistan-India matches are always a heated affair on the field, but some moments between players of the rival teams outside of the ground end up winning hearts across both sides of the border.

The Indian team made a heartwarming gesture last year when it gifted a Virat Kohli shirt, signed by its players, to former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi.

I recently attended a dinner at Shahid Afridi’s residence and the signed Kohli shirt, hanging on the wall of the cricketer’s house, caught my attention.
