MS Dhoni and Shoaib Malik greet each other during practice: Two senior cricketers were seen bonding during a practice session.
In a video which has come out as another evidence of camaraderie and affection between the cricketers of India and Pakistan, two senior players from both the sides were spotted together during a practice session ahead of the Asia Cup in Dubai.
The two cricketers being talked about are former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni and former Pakistan captain and current middle-order batsman Shoaib Malik.
In the video, Malik is seen approaching the Indian nets where Dhoni is already sitting. The duo shake hands before engaging in some talks.
Despite the animosity being generated regarding India-Pakistan cricket matches on various TV channels and across social media, a video such as this proves that the men who matter the most take things lightly when not in a match situation.
Watch the full video:
Currently, only eight members of the Indian team have reached the venue. As said by Rohit Sharma during the pre-tournament press conference some hours ago, the rest of the players will reach UAE (from England) very soon.
The first match of the Asia Cup will be played between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka tomorrow. India will play their first match against Hong Kong on September 18. On the next day, they will face arch-rivals Pakistan. India will play all their matches in Dubai only.
