India's 2011 World Cup-winning hero sends touching video message to star Pakistani all-rounder, wishing him luck for Pakistan's T20 league
Although uncertainty prevails over the scheduled bilateral series between India and Pakistan to be held this month, the camaraderie between cricketers of the two nations hasn't seen any dip.
Yesterday, India's 2011 World Cup-winning hero Yuvraj Singh sent a video message to flamboyant Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi, wishing him success with the Peshawar team in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which will be staged in Dubai and Sharjah in February 2016.
In the video, Yuvraj described Afridi as 'a tender heart'.

"A team having Afridi will do well. Don't take Afridi's comments very seriously. We have heard a lot of abuse from him when playing for India. He is only hard from outside, but is a very good person. He has a very tender heart," Yuvraj said in the 30-second video which went viral.
Yuvraj's kind words won him a lot of praise over social media in Pakistan.
