The trauma of Partition has never allowed India and Pakistan any peace. Pakistan, especially, has considered India a rival in all fields. With such history between the countries, it is no wonder that any sporting event between them is matter of great interest. This is even more so in the case of cricket, undoubtedly the most popular sport in both countries. An India-Pakistan cricket match is just as intense as a battle. This, however, does not mean that the Pakistanis hate the Indians. On the contrary, there are many Pakistani people who are devoted admirers of the Indian cricketing talent. One such cricket aficionado, who is a fan of the Indian cricket team and an ardent admirer of former Captain M.S. Dhoni, is Mohammed Bashir.
Mohammed Bashir, also known as Chacha Chicago, is a cricket enthusiast from Pakistan. He proudly declares that Dhoni is dearer to him than his wife, and revealed the reason for this recently. Bashir said that he had come to Mohali for the semi-final match between India and Pakistan during World Cup 2011. However, the tickets had been sold out by the time he arrived. Disheartened, Bashir held up a placard saying he wanted a ticket to watch the match. On the second day, he said, someone approached him with a cover from Dhoni. The Indian skipper had sent him tickets for the match! An elated Bashir has been a die-hard fan of Dhoni since then. Bashir said that the affection in India made him admire the Indian team. This cricket enthusiast is currently in Sri Lanka to watch the Nidahas Cup triangular International tournament.
