After seeing the efforts of the former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi, ex-Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh decided to appreciate his effort on Twitter posting a video on it. Pakistan has been severely hit by the coronavirus. Close to 2,000 people are suffering from the virus as the country has gone into a state of emergency like other countries.
In the video, the off-spinner talks about the success of Shahid Afridi Foundation in Pakistan delivering necessary items to the poor people. He also nominated Wasim Akram, Yuvraj Singh and Shoaib Akhtar to come across and spread the awareness regarding the initiative. He also encouraged the fans to make an able contribution to the foundation during the COVID-19 crisis.
“The world is passing through extreme testing and unprecedented times.
