Earlier, Afridi also claimed to have donated $10,000 to Yuvraj’s foundation
Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan cricketer, has been a busy man over the last few days. Having last played for the Multan Sultans in the 2020 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), he doesn’t have much to do on the cricket field for the time being. Hence, the Khyber Agency-born cricketer has decided to devote himself for the ones affected in the massive coronavirus outbreak.
Through his foundation, Afridi has tried to lend support to the needy in Pakistan where 706 people have lost their lives due to the ungodly virus. Thus far, there have been 32,081 cases with over 8,550 people recovering. But bearing in mind the current stage, things could go wrong in no time and hence, complacency shouldn’t be the way forward by any stretch of the imagination.
Shahid Afridi takes a heartfelt step
In the meantime, Afridi has been distributing ration for the underprivileged. It’s now been learned that he used Yuvraj Singh’s money for the noble cause. Back in April, the former Indian cricketer donated to Afridi’s foundation and also urged his fans to come forward for the same. Even Harbhajan Singh joined hands with Yuvraj in helping out the ones affected in the situation.
The Punjab-born Yuvraj uploaded a video to extend his support for Afridi’s foundation. The caption read, “These are testing times, it’s time to lookout for each other specially the ones who are lesser fortunate. Let’s do our bit, I am supporting @SAfridiOfficial & @SAFoundationN in this noble initiative of covid19. Pls donate on donatekarona #StayHome @harbhajan_singh.”
Afridi in return, also claimed to have donated $10,000 to Yuvraj Singh’s foundation ‘You We Can’. India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads over the last few decades due to all sorts of political turmoil and the heart-warming step from the players have come as a breath of fresh air.
For the time being, Afridi, who once held the record for the fastest ODI century, distributed Yuvraj’s money to a Hindu temple, Lakshmi Narayan Mandir, located in Karachi. In a few pictures Afridi was seen in a red t-shirt and black track pants. He was also wearing a mask as a precautionary measure.
