"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.
