Indian cricketer MS Dhoni is adored in Pakistan. He has built a good fan following in India's neighbor country. Dhoni even made a famous Pakistani fan Chacha Bashir support India in the Asia Cup 2018 final.
You might have seen Bashir sporting an Indian jersey and cheering for India during the final last month in UAE.
Bashir stated the reason was Dhoni. He had even met the Indian wicket-keeper batsman during the tournament and was seen hanging out with him and stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma.
The Pakistan superfan spoke about the moment Dhoni came in his room to gift an Indian jersey to Bashir.
“Raat barah baje, kamre ki bell hoti hai Hayat hotel mein. Door kholta hu, samne Dhoni sahab khade hue hai. Hum log same floor pe the. Unhone mujhe bola Chacha naya, brand-new. Aap yeh T-shirt pehen na (The bell rings at midnight, and when I opened the door I saw Dhoni standing outside. We were on the same floor. He handed over the jersey and told me 'Uncle this brand new T-shirt is for you, do wear it.'),” Chacha said recalling the memorable moment.
The jersey was signed by Dhoni and it had his name written on it as well.
