Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi was fined by the Motorway police for speeding while driving to Karachi from Lahore, Daily Jang reported.

Afridi paid Rs1,500 as a penalty for violating traffic rules and lauded the Motorway police for not favouring him because he is a sports celebrity.

"The law is equal for everyone," he said.

Later, the cricket star took selfies with the police personnel.
