He also added that it was not a matter of countries and their interests, but humanity. It is to be noted that Pakistan’s first coronavirus case was reported from a man who was detained in Italy over narcotics smuggling and handed over to Pakistan.

The whole nation is also facing a lack of medical supplies with the Balochistan Young Doctors Association going on strike owing to lack of protective kits.

“If India can make 10,000 ventilators for us, Pakistan will remember this gesture forever. But we can only propose the matches. The rest is up to the authorities (to decide),” added Shoaib.

Recently former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and out-of-favour off-spinner Harbhajan Singh were recently trolled for asking their social media followers to donate to Shahid Afridi’s charity foundation which is helping Pakistan to fight against the deadly virus.

“It was inhuman to criticise them. It is not about countries or religion at the moment, it is about humanity,” he opined.

Shoaib Akhtar spent a great time in India as a commentator. He had recalled his days in Mumbai during the World T20 tournament in the year 2016, the last time he came to India for official work.

“I am forever grateful for the love I have received from the people of India. For the first time I am revealing this, whatever I used to earn from India, I made a significant amount there, thirty per cent of it, I used to distribute among the low-income staff who used to work with me in the TV,” Rawalpindi Express remembered.
