The story was revealed in a clip of ABC’s radio show called Commentator Cam by radio host Alison Mitchell who narrated a very heartwarming anecdote she was told by an Indian Taxi driver who drove her to Brisbane’s Gabba stadium.
“A couple of days ago, he was called to the Pakistan team’s hotel and picked up five of the Pakistani players. They wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for a meal. He drove them to an Indian restaurant.”
She further revealed that when the cricketers offered him his rightful taxi fare, out of mere love and respect he politely refused. However, the Pakistani cricketers returned the favor with a heart-warming gesture and invited the fellow to have 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.
Here’s how people are reacting:
