MOUNT MAUNGANUI: A video of Indian women cricketers playing with and showing love to Pakistani skipper Bismah Maroof's daughter — Fatima — emerged on social media on Sunday, garnering love and appreciation from fans on both sides of the border.
Putting aside the intense rivalry, the India team has shown a gesture of peace as they showed love to baby Fatima and played with her.
They also posed for a picture with the mother-daughter duo after the conclusion of the Pakistan-India Women's World Cup 2022 opener at the Bay Oval.
"Little Fatima's first lesson in the spirit of cricket from India and Pakistan," tweeted the ICC.
India secured a comprehensive 107-run win over Pakistan in the Women's World Cup after an all-round performance from Sneh Rana.
Another video clip was shared on Twitter, in which a member of the Indian cricket team was also seen playing with the Pakistan skipper's six-month-old daughter, who was laughing as the cricketer played with her.
