England are back in Pakistan after 17 years for a test series. Naturally, the excitement for the series is high among Pakistani and English fans alike. English fan group ‘Barmy Army’ have also traveled to Pakistan to cheer for their team from the stands. As the cricket match unfolds at Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi, it’s a sweet gesture from England’s fans that is garnering high praise online. The Barmy Army posted a beautiful video on Twitter showing them helping a young Pakistani fan get tickets for a two-day match.
In the video, a man, a member of the fan group, can be seen interacting with the boy as they sit in the stands. Soon the man gives him tickets for the next day of the game. The second half of the video shows him attending the second day’s match. Towards the end, the boy beams with joy when he sees the live action.
“Meet Daim. He came to us yesterday but didn’t have a ticket for today, but one of our kind members helped him get a ticket for today and tomorrow. Two nations, one sport,” the clip caption read.
