Pakistani cricketers are winning hearts, after their sweet gesture to an Indian cab driver in Brisbane. English commentator Alison Mitchell narrated the story to former Aussie fast bowler Mitchell Johnson during a live radio broadcast involving five Pakistan cricketers including leggie Yasir Shah, seamer Shaheen Afridi and youngster Naseem Shah and an Indian taxi driver.
Mitchell said: "A couple of days ago, he 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."
She added that the taxi driver refused to accept the fare when the Pakistan cricketers tried to pay him. Impressed by the generous act, the players invited him for a 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.
The video of Allison telling the story to Johnson immediately went viral on social media. Fans from both India and Pakistan are showering the visiting cricketers with praise.
Australia picked up an easy win by an innings and 5 runs in the first Test to take 1-0 lead in the Test series.
