Former Pakistani cricketer Rashid Latif recorded yet another video message after Pakistan clinched their maiden Champions Trophy title. In an amazing turnaround of events, this time the video spreads love, unlike the previous one which was filled with hatred.
The retired international congratulated the whole Pakistan team and staff in the video but also flattered the Indian cricket team. He hailed the performance of Hardik Pandya as a lone warrior in the match and gave the team a pat on the back for their incredible journey to the final. The right-handed batsman congratulated players like Virat Kohli, Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja terming them as the top players in the world.
It was a brilliant gesture from the man as he admitted to the fact that the Indian team is the leading side in the world. He also claimed that winning and losing are a part of the gentleman’s game and no team is superior or inferior to another. The 48-year-old also demanded more cricket matches between the two powerhouses of cricket which will help strengthen their relationship and also benefit them financially.
The video was recorded with a heart warming motive of attaining peace between the two nations. Latif put an end to the social media war that started off with a tweet from former Indian opener Virender Sehwag after India thrashed Pakistan in their group stage encounter. The Karachi-born cricketer expects a similar response from Sehwag and said that both the teams should play like brothers and help Asian cricket reach greater heights.
The is wonderful video from Rashid Latif deserves a great amount of respect and it would be interesting to see the reply from Virender Sehwag. We hope that Virender Sehwag comes up with something equally honouring and shake the hand of friendship offered by Latif.
