Afridi has always believed that the political indifference should be kept aside by the two Asian nations in India and Pakistan and the cricketing ties shall restart.
This gesture though will remain memorable amongst many of the cricket fans and the general public across the two countries for a long while.
The message of peace and prosperity went loud and clear.
