Pakistan, India players exchange shirts in warm meetup after WC clash

CAPE TOWN: In a goodwill gesture, Pakistan and India women’s teams engaged with each other in a warm get-together and exchanged team jerseys following the high-voltage clash between the two sides in ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

On Sunday, India beat arch-rivals Pakistan by seven wickets in a Group B fixture of the megaevent at Newland Cricket Ground, thanks to a gritty half-century by Jemimah Rodrigues.

After the conclusion of the match, the on-field rivalry was pushed to a back burner and the players from both sides meet each other in high spirits.

Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Pakistan’s veteran all-rounder Nida Dar also exchanged shirts with each other during the meetup.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan next face Ireland in Group B before India lock horns with West Indies on the same day.
