While everyone else was clearly taking sides, a Canadian couple did something totally different. They sported half-and-half stitched jerseys of India and Pakistan at the Manchester stadium to express the true sentiment of cricket, according to News18.
This picture posted on Twitter captures the actual essence of cricket and here is what Twitter had to say about this couple.
You couldn't get anything better than this, we need to look beyond @MirzaSania & @realshoaibmalik for the real inspiration and unity among the people of #india and #Pakistan #CWC19 #INDvPAK https://t.co/8hsGm5i68a— இளங்கோ 🏏 (@nameiszulu) June 16, 2019
Would have been better to have a thin strip of England jersey in between… https://t.co/niXQ8ANi7x— Member of Whale (@sidin) June 16, 2019
Spotted this couple at the #IndiaVsPakistan @cricketworldcup game and was intrigued by their jerseys! Husband is from Pakistan, wife from India so both stitched up India-Pak jerseys & wore them! Both are Canadians, watching the game in England, rooting for peace #SpiritofCricket pic.twitter.com/KrUjtkjFMn— Lakshmi Kaul (@KaulLakshmi) June 16, 2019
Exactly it's just a game all we need is thorough enjoyment no hate no taunts no inflammatory sounds.— Kshama (@Kshama76616584) June 16, 2019
The ONLY time I will ever sanction a half-and-half piece of sport kit. https://t.co/bOUKL1LMEy— Old Man Student (@StudentBremner) June 16, 2019
Let's not forget the true spirit of the game over some rivalry.
