India and Pakistan may not be sharing the best of relations at the moment due to constant ceasefire violations at the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, but that isn’t the case when the two cricket teams play each other.
And it was a moment of sheer joy for the Pakistani women’s team bowler Kainat Imtiaz, when she got to meet her inspiration from the Indian team, Jhulan Goswami.
In her recent Instagram post, Kainat has made a stunning confession that how it was one Indian woman cricketer, who inspired her to become a fast bowler 12 years ago.
Her moving post read, “Let me share a story with you all. In 2005, I saw the Indian team for the 1st time as the Asia cup was held in Pakistan. I was the ball picker during the tornament… I saw Jhulan Goswami. The fastest bowler of that time. I was so impressed that I chose cricket as a career. Specificly fast bowling.
“Its a proud moment for me as after 12 years today in 2017 I am playing this ODI World Cup with one of my inspirations and getting more inspired.”
