Still, he was getting the attention he had earned through his game. Pakistan Captain one gesture once again proved how humble he has been in his journey so far.

Everyone has a point of view. There’s definitely mutual respect. He’s older than me, and I have taught him to respect our elders, no matter which country they are from. I learnt a lot from him. When I started my career, I listened to a lot of his interviews. In 2019 I had a chat with him and it helped me a lot.”
