KARACHI: England’s wicket-keeper batter Ollie Pope surprised a young Pakistan by giving him a special gift on Tuesday in the final Test at National Bank Cricket Arena.
England sealed a sensational eight-wicket early on day four of the third Test and became the first team to clean-sweep Pakistan in a Test series at home.
Soon after the conclusion of the match, Pope went towards the stands where a few enthusiastic young Pakistani fans were waving at him. He responded to their affection by tossing his shoes towards one of the children.
Pope remained one of the leading run-getters for England in the Test series as he accumulated 238 runs with help of a century and two fifties.
Moreover, the English player also gifted signed cricket balls to Pakistani fans present in the stadium as a token of appreciation.
It is pertinent to mention here this was England’s first Test tour of Pakistan since 2005.
