Heartwarming gesture: Shaheen Shah Afridi congratulates Jasprit Bumrah on becoming a father

In a touching display of camaraderie transcending the boundaries of rivalry, Shaheen Shah Afridi extended his warm congratulations to Jasprit Bumrah on the occasion of becoming a new father. The heartwarming exchange occurred after the India vs. Pakistan Super 4 match was abandoned due to inclement weather.

The Pakistan Cricket Board’s Twitter account shared a heartwarming video capturing the moment when Shaheen Shah Afridi approached Jasprit Bumrah to convey his heartfelt congratulations. Afridi’s genuine and friendly gesture was met with gratitude by the Indian pacer, who responded with a heartfelt “thank you.”

Jasprit Bumrah, the 29-year-old fast bowler, had made the decision to temporarily step away from the Indian cricket camp in Sri Lanka to be by his wife, Sanjana Ganesan’s side during the birth of their child. This joyous occasion meant that Bumrah had to miss India’s match against Nepal, scheduled for the previous Monday.

Taking to social media, Bumrah shared the delightful news with the world, expressing his overwhelming joy and gratitude. He wrote, “Our little family has grown, and our hearts are fuller than we could ever imagine! This morning we welcomed our little boy, Angad Jasprit Bumrah, into the world. We are over the moon and can’t wait for everything this new chapter of our lives brings with it – Jasprit and Sanjana.”
