Indian Cabbie Treated To Dinner By Pakistani Cricketers After He Refused To Take Cab Fare

Pakistan, currently touring Australia, may have lost the T20 series and the first Test at the Gabba in Brisbane recently, but a few cricketers, including Shaheen Shah Afridi, Yasir Shah and Naseem Shah are winning hearts with their kind gesture towards an Indian cabbie. The taxi-driver in Australia gave a free ride to five Pakistani cricket players to a restaurant, and in return they invited him for a meal.

English commentator Alison Mitchell narrated the driver’s story to former Australian cricketer Mitchell Johnson during a live radio broadcast. Mitchell said, “A couple of days ago, an Indian cab driver was called to Pakistan team hotel and picked up five of the Pakistani players. They wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for a meal. He drove them to an Indian restaurant”. Alison then added that the Indian cabbie refused to accept fares from them and impressed by the driver’s generosity, the players invited him for a meal.

Alison Mitchell said that she came to know about the incident through the same cabbie who drove her to Gabba stadium for the Test match. She said, “He showed the photograph on his phone, of him sitting at the table at the restaurant with five members of the Pakistan cricket team”.
