Although the political relations between India and Pakistan might be strained, both the nations share great camaraderie off the cricket field. There have been times when Mohammad Aamer has heaped praise on Virat Kohli or vice-versa. Shahid Afridi was gifted a phenomenal farewell gift from the Indian team earlier this year. During the 2017 Champions Trophy final a moment where Shoaib Malik was seen laughing with Kohli and co. during the presentation ceremony was termed as Spirit of Cricket 2017 moment by ICC.

This time Yuvraj Singh and Shoaib Akhtar were seen indulging in Twitter banter. Shoaib is always expressive about his views and opinions on his Twitter account. This time he posted a motivational message by Dwayne Rock Johnson. What caught Yuvraj s attention was the helmet and welding gun that Akhtar was holding in the image alongside the quote.

Yuvraj, who is known for his sense of humour on Twitter, took a dig at Akhtar asking him if he is heading for welding. Yuvraj might be having time of his life off the field; he is struggling to make the cut in the Indian squad.

After failing to clear the Yo Yo Test on several occasions, Yuvraj finally managed to clear the same on December 5 and is hopeful to be part of 2019 World Cup squad.
