A heartwarming cricket-related story has been making waves on social media. As the ICC Cricket World Cup gears up to commence in India on October 5, teams are in the midst of their warm-up matches.
Pakistan recently played their first warm-up match against New Zealand, albeit with an unfortunate loss. Their debut World Cup match is scheduled for October 6, where they’ll face off against the Netherlands.
Cricket stars like Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, and Mohammad Rizwan enjoy immense popularity in India, garnering a substantial fan following. However, a remarkable twist in this tale revolves around an Indian girl from Punjab who has developed strong feelings for Pakistani cricketer Iftikhar Ahmed. Her proposal to him has gone viral on various social media platforms.
Iftikhar Ahmed, affectionately known as “Chachu” among his fans and teammates, is no stranger to the term of endearment, which is commonly used in South Asian cultures to address an older male.

Interestingly, this Indian girl, residing in Dubai and hailing from Punjab, has openly expressed her desire to marry the talented Pakistani all-rounder. In an interview, when asked about her favorite player from the Pakistani team, she unhesitatingly named Iftikhar Ahmed. She charmingly added that while he might be “uncle” to the world, to her, he is nothing less than pure ‘love.’
