Over the years, we have often seen fans sacrifice a lot for their favourite cricketers. They travel to a lot of places just to have a glimpse of their superstars. But there are also fans who don’t really travel or go to watch games. They tend to show their love in many different ways. One such person is Javed Shah who lives in a Valsad, a town in Gujarat. The 33-year-old drives an auto rickshaw to earn a living. However, he is a big fan of India and Baroda cricketer Yusuf Pathan.
In fact, the city recognises him as a die-hard fan of the 36-year-old cricketer who last played for India back in March 2012. However, Javed’s love for Pathan doesn’t fade. The auto-rickshaw driver in Valsad used to bring up various kinds of offers for his auto-rickshaw ride. Depending on how much Yusuf scored, he was offering a discount ranging from 25 to 75 per cent.
This happened in the IPL in the last few years. However, this year it is different. Every time, Pathan will score fifty or more, Javed has promised a free ride within the city of Valsad.
“This year, every time Yusuf Bhai scores 50 or more runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad, passengers will get a free ride within the Valsad city. I will not charge a penny,” Javed was quoted saying by Sportstar.
Yusuf Pathan hosts dinner for SRH teammates on the occasion of his marriage anniversary
Yusuf Pathan was retained by Sunrisers in IPL 2019 after he fulfilled the expectations really well in the previous season. He hosted a grand dinner for his teammates while celebrating his sixth wedding anniversary earlier this week. Rashid Khan took to Twitter to wish the 36-year-old Baroda all-rounder and also thank him for the dinner party.
In the picture Rashid posted, the SRH players are seen having dinner. Sandeep Sharma, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Basil Thampi are seen posing for the photo.
