Pakistani leg spinner Shadab Khan has come up with a very sweet gesture after the conclusion of the recent T20I series against Windies. Windies toured Pakistan for a short international series. The two countries played three matches in as many number of days. The hosts emerged victorious in all the three games and whitewashed the visitors.
Albeit the Windies side was not the strongest on paper or on the field, the fact that they turned up for the tour was a big reason for joy for the Pakistan cricket. With the Men from the Caribbean touring Pakistan, international cricket resumed in the city of Karachi after 9 years. All the three T20Is of the series was played at the National Stadium in Karachi.
Last year, international cricket had returned to Lahore with World XI touring the city for a three match T20I series against Pakistan. Also, Sri Lanka toured Lahore for a T20I in the last season. But this particular series was the first complete series that took place in Pakistan after almost a decade. Shadab Khan took to micro blogging site Twitter to express his gratitude to the visitors.
The young leggie thanked the Windies side for coming to Pakistan and creating a little piece of history. Also, in his tweet, Shadab tried to bury the hatchet between him and the Windies cricketer Chadwick Walton. During the second T20I of the series, Shadab had given a heated sendoff to Walton.
Earlier, he was taken away for 11 runs by Walton in his first over. Shadab came back strong to clean Walton up in his next over. While Shadab was handed a demerit point for his actions, he was also fined 20 per cent of his match fees.
Here is what Shadab Khan tweeted:
“What happens on the field stays on the field. Thank you Chadwick and West Indies for creating history, first international series in Karachi for 9 years. #PakistanZindabad,” Shadab Khan wrote in his tweet.
