Radio host Alison Mitchell from ABC’s radio show “Commentator Cam” shared a heartwarming anecdote she was told by a taxi driver who drove her to the Brisbane’s Gabba stadium.

Alison Mitchell told the story to former Australian cricketer Mitchell Johnson on “Commentator Cam”, sharing the taxi driver’s story of declining to accept fare from five Pakistani cricketers who were on their way to an Indian restaurant in Brisbane. The cricketers, including Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Yasir Shah, responded by asking him to join them for dinner at the restaurant.

Fans from both countries commented on how sports brings people together, even those from two rival countries.
