The god’s own city, Kerala is currently in the midst of an unusual flood havoc. The calamity has caused vast suffering and devastation. Many lives were lost due to the occurrence. Hundreds of homes were totally destroyed to leave locals homeless. Meanwhile, Pakistani cricketer, Shahid Afridi has extended his support to the devastating people of Kerala.
For the first time in history, 27 dams in the State had to be opened. Never before had the State witnessed such a calamity of that scale. In the fight against the flood, Kerala management is doing their best to avoid the odds. Meanwhile, cricketers too are giving their support.
Though there are many equations between India and Pakistan, the legendary all-rounder giving his helping hand during the wrong time received a huge praise from the fans. He reckoned that they would be giving their support through his foundation.

The man with a golden heart, Afridi has always been known for his social service apart from cricket. He always gave his support to the people who are in the trouble through his trust. Recently, the likes of Virat Kohli and Harbhajan Singh did their best to support Shahid Afridi foundation as well.
However, Shahid Afridi showed his humanity side by sending his support to Indians who are in the trouble. Meanwhile, fans appreciated the effort made by Shahid Afridi through their tweets.
On the Work Front:
The former skipper of Pakistan, Afridi was due to play in the ongoing Carribean Premier League 2018 for Jamaica Tallawahs. However, he failed to take part as he wasn’t successfully recovered from his knee issue. Probably, it would take quite a time for him to be back on the field.
