Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi on Tuesday expressed gratitude to India skipper Virat Kohli for donating his bat for the Shahid Afridi Foundation. "Thank you @imVkohli for your kind gesture in support of @SAFoundationN. Friends & supporters like you ensure #HopeNotOut for everyone," Afridi tweeted, with a picture of the bat signed. "You're most welcome Shahid Bhai.. Wishing you and the @SAFoundationN all the luck for the upcoming events," was Kohli's quick reply.
The Indian team had presented a Kohli shirt, signed by all the players, to Afridi when he retired from the international cricket last April.
The shirt, which fetched Rs 3 lakhs at an auction in London, had a message from the Team India captain, saying, "To Shahid Bhai, best wishes, always a pleasure playing against you."
