Shahid Afridi invites Virat Kohli to Pakistan

Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi echoed the enthusiasm, praising Kohli for his stance and its potential to foster better relations between the two cricket-mad nations. Afridi, a long-time advocate for the resumption of bilateral series between India and Pakistan, extended a personal invitation to Kohli to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) or come with the Indian national team in Pakistan.

“Virat Kohli’s statement showed that such cricketers are the ambassadors of their country. I had expected the same kind of statement from Virat Kohli. Thank you so much, Virat. We are waiting for you to come to Pakistan and play in PSL or with the Indian team. It would be good if you came with the Indian team,”  Afridi said at a public event in Karachi. ”

Shahid Afridi said “Virat Kohli’s statement about coming to Pakistan is heartwarming. I thank him, and welcome him to come and play in the PSL and also in the Champions Trophy with Team India” 🇮🇳🇵🇰❤️❤️❤️#RCBvsCSK #IPL2024 @SAfridiOfficial @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/APHHIejz7y

Strained political relations and security concerns have limited cricket matches between India and Pakistan for several years. The two teams currently only meet during major ICC tournaments. Afridi’s continued push for a return to bilateral series reflects the desire within Pakistan to rekindle this historic cricketing rivalry.
