‘I Dedicate My Performance To Cancer Sufferers’: Usman Shinwari Wins Hearts After Wrecking South Africa
Pakistani pacer Usman Khan Shinwari has won not only Pakistani hearts but also of those from around the world after his post-innings interview in which he dedicated his outstanding performance against South Africa to those suffering from cancer.
South African national team are observing Pink Day today, which means all they earn during the fourth ODI of the series against Pakistan will be donated to cancer patients.
The hosts, who batted first, were bowled out for 164 thanks to 4-wickets from young Usman Khan Shinwari, who not only impressed with his performance, but with his words too.
“PinkDay is a special day for everyone and I dedicate my performance today to all cancer sufferers” is what he said.
Social Media has been applauding the young star.
President Arif Alvi lauds the young man.
