Cricket in India is a religion. Cricketers are treated like gods. It is also true that sports have no boundaries. Players from all around the world play game with the utmost respect for one another. The latest Test match between India and Afghanistan is proof of the bond sportsman shares with the opposition and their teammates.
Afghanistan played their first test match against India in Bangalore. India comfortably won the match in 2 days. India defeated Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs, which is also the biggest victory for the Indian team.
However, the heartwarming gesture of Ajinkya Rahane at the presentation ceremony is winning everyone’s hearts. When India received the trophy, Indian captain Rahane invited Afghan players to pose with them.
It is great to see Ajinkya Rahane’s gesture towards Afghanistan players. Afghanistan got the test match status with this match. It is very sweet and astonishing gesture by the Indian captain.
The official Twitter page of BCCI shared the video with a caption,
