Five Pakistani cricketers have taken an Indian cab driver to dinner at a restaurant in Brisbane of Australia.

The players treated the driver on Friday, because the latter refused to accept any fare from them after he declared himself a fan of cricket.

The five cricketers included Yasir Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Naseem Shah, reports The Indian Express.

In a tête-à-tête with former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson on the fourth day of the first Test between Pakistan and Australia at the Gabba, ABC radio presenter Alison Mitchell recounted the touching story of the taxi driver.

She said she chanced on the driver on Sunday morning when she took a cab to the stadium ahead of the match. 

“When the cabbie got to know we are headed to the stadium, he asked us if we were watching  or working. When we told him we work on commentary, he got very excited,” she said, The Indian Express reported.

After a few seconds, the driver took out his phone and showed her a picture of himself at a restaurant alongside members of the Pakistan cricket team.

Alison furthered: “Turns out, a couple of days ago, he was called to the Pakistan cricket team hotel. He picked up five of the Pakistan players.

“And he is a cricket fan, he was naturally excited to have them in the taxi and they wanted to go to an Indian restaurant for a meal. He drove them to the restaurant, and when they got out, he said it’s on me,” she continued.

After the driver refused to take the cab fare, the cricketers showed their gratitude by asking him to join them for dinner at the restaurant.
