Mumbai: India and Afghanistan will be facing each other in two-days time for the one-off historic test match, which will be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
While Afghanistan are coming into the debut test match after whitewashing Bangladesh 3-0 in the recently concluded T20 series, Indian players are on break after hectic two months of Indian Premier league.
Players from Afghanistan have been favourites among Indian crowds. Players like Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and teenage sensation Mujeeb Ur-Rahman have won hearts of Indian fans with their performances in the IPL. They have expressed their love for Indian cricketers as well.
Karim Sadiq also managed to find admirers for himself as Chennai Super Kings trio sent gifts to the Afghan player.
Cricketers MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Dwayne Bravo sent him jerseys and an autographed bat. The cricketer took to social media Twitter to share the surprise and also thank the trio for their gesture.
He posted the pictures of his gifts and captioned it with, “Thanks all time best captain @msdhoni thanks @DJBravo47 @ImRaina from your respectable gift.”
