Kohli was quick to reply and wished Afridi the best for his foundation.

“You’re most welcome Shahid Bhai. Wishing you and the @SAFoundationN all the luck for the upcoming events. #HopeNotOut,” tweeted the Indian skipper quoting Shahid Afridi’s tweet.

Afridi, speaking to the media, said that Kohli’s gesture is a great sign for humanity.

“We must encourage good things, regardless of who is doing it,” said Afridi.

“Kohli is a legend and he has always been very supportive and I am very thankful to him for his support,” he added.

“People in Pakistan want to watch Kohli in Pakistan. I have played a lot in India and can never forget the respect people gave me there,” Afridi continued.
