“Congratulations. This is a small gift for the little prince,” said Shaheen as he delivered the gift to the Indian pacer. “I thought I should give him. May Allah always keep him happy and he becomes the new Bumrah.”
Bumrah in reply thanked and shook hands with Shaheen. He described the gesture as “very sweet”.
