A cricket fanatic himself, the Indian driver picked up Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah along with two others to take them to a restaurant.

They wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for a meal and he took them there. But when they got out, the driver said there’s no need to pay and the cab ride is on him.

In return, the Pakistani cricketers offered the Indian driver to join them for dinner and he agreed. Later, the driver also dropped them off back at the hotel.
