Cricket, often called the “gentleman’s game,” has captivated the hearts of millions in India, transcending mere sport to become an integral part of the nation’s identity. With a rich history and passionate fans, cricket has achieved unparalleled fame in the country. As cricket thrives, its influence on Indian society will remain indelible, making it an everlasting symbol of national identity and sporting excellence.
Recently, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan shared a video on his Instagram handle. In the video, a child is batting inside the house. During this, he is seen playing the shorts of many great cricketers of India.
Although the child in the video looks very young, the video of the child playing cricket is going viral. Captioning the video, Amitabh wrote that the future of India is in safe hands.
While batting, he is seen playing the helicopter shot of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of the Indian team and CSK captain. Apart from this, the child also played cover drives like the great player of the cricket world, Virat Kohli. Also, the child played Sachin Tendulkar’s straight drive short. The shorts, which even big cricketers could not play, this kid played them in minutes.
Amitabh is also being criticized for sharing half-incomplete information in the video. People have called this child from Pakistan in the comments. But many others praised the budding cricketer, saying there should be no discrimination based on nationality in the game.
Commenting on the post, Pakistani musician Gohar Mumtaz wrote, “Sir, this child is from Pakistan. I had seen the child on social media through a Pakistani page with his ID.”
He further wrote, “If we agree to play in each other’s country, the future of cricket is in our hands. And I am your big fan.”
