During a time where India and Pakistan are struggling to make peace, the exchange between an Indian taxi driver and Pakistani cricket team players will restore your faith in peace!
The heartwearming story of the Indian taxi driver & five Pakistan players. ABC radio presenter Alison Mitchell tells Mitchell Johnson about it.
Just fantastic! 🇵🇰
Athletes are ambassadors of their countries.
Well done boys, @Shah64Y, @iShaheenAfridi & Nasim Shah.@TheRealPCB pic.twitter.com/ETtFoZWs93

Radio presenter Alison Mitchell narrated the sweetest little incident she saw happen between the citizens of the two countries. She narrates how an Indian taxi driver drove the Pakistani players to a restaurant and refused to take any money from them. Moved by the sweet gesture, the players Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Musa Shah, Imran Khan and Nasim Shah invited him to join them for dinner!
And the internet loving this little exchange!
Commendable gesture by Pakistani players to acknowledge/ return a favour by a cricket fan.

People saw how much potential there was for peace between the two countries:
Why is it that all the jingoism cease to exist when outside of their country? I think this is an excellent example of how much potential there is of peaceful coexistence if applied in home countries.
