Afridi confirmed that Kohli’s bat will be auctioned for his Thar hospital project and the auction will take place in New Castle, England.
A signed jersey of Virat Kohli was also auctioned on Monday by the Shahid Afridi foundation.
In an interview, Afridi said that people should support each other.
Shahid Afridi said that,
“People in Pakistan want to watch Kohli in Pakistan. I have played a lot in India and can never forget the respect people gave me there.”
“We are not politicians and have nothing to do with politics, we are ambassadors and we must continue to give a good message.”
“Kohli is a legend and he has always been very supportive and I am very thankful to him for his support,” he added.
