There is no hiding the fact that the former India and Pakistan players had great camaraderie during their playing days. Some of them are Harbhajan Singh and Shoaib Akhtar whose friendship isn’t hidden from anyone. Meanwhile, both players are playing for India Maharajas and Asia Lions respectively in the ongoing Legends League Cricket 2023 in Qatar. Both players were captured hugging each other.
Apart from this, Singh also hugged Abdul Razaaq who is also part of the Lions team. The fans are extremely divided over the incident. After all, in the last few years, the political relations between India and Pakistan have been at their lowest due to various issues. Even though some of the PCB administrators have insisted on separating cricket from politics, the Indian government hasn’t budged from its stance.
