The rivalry between team India of cricket and team Pakistan has always been a never ending one. As the countries stopped playing one to one due to security concerns in the matches involved with the players of Pakistan, both the teams faced each other in the matches conducted by ICC.
Now Pakistan is playing against Australia in Australia. Australia crushed Pakistan by an innings and five runs in the first Test in Brisbane. The Aussies took an unassailable 1-0 lead in the two-match series with the victory. After trailing the host by 340 runs at the start of second innings, Pakistan lost wickets at regular intervals. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan gave some fight to Australia but ultimately the score proved too much for them as they were bowled out for 335 late on the fourth day. Josh Hazlewood was the pick of the bowlers for Australia as he took 4 wickets for 63 runs.
Meanwhile, during the match, English commentator Alison Mitchell revealed an interesting incident that took place between an Indian Taxi driver and Pakistan players. She who came to the stadium with the help of an Indian Taxi driver narrated the incident told by the driver to Mitchell Johnson, former fast bowler of Australian team.
Alison said “A couple of days ago, he ( taxi driver) was called to the Pakistan team hotel and picked up five of the Pakistan players. They wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for a meal. He drove them to an Indian restaurant.”
The presenter revealed that when the cricketers offered him taxi fare, he refused to take any money. However, the Pakistani cricketers returned the favour with a generous act and invited the driver to have dinner with them.
“He showed the photograph on his phone of him sitting at the table at the restaurant with five members of the Pakistan cricket team,” she added. Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi and Nasir Shah were three Pakistani cricketers among the five. As soon as she revealed this incident on air, it went viral in social media platforms as it was uploaded in ABC Grandstand.
