Brisbane – Pakistani cricketers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Yasir Shah and Naseem Shah treated an Indian taxi driver in Australia to dinner after he refused to take a fare from them for a ride he gave them here.
Alison Mitchell, an ABC radio presenter, narrated the story about the taxi driver to former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson.
Alison came to know about the incident through the same taxi driver, who drove her to the Brisbane Cricket Ground or Gabba stadium for the first Test match between Pakistan and Australia.
The same taxi driver was told to pick up 5 Pakistani players, who wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for dinner, said Alison.
So, the driver drove them to the restaurant but refused to take the fare.
The Pakistani players then returned the favour by inviting him for dinner with them.
