During the 2023 World Cup, Pakistani cricketers decided to take a break from their training schedule for a shopping spree in Kolkata that left both the locals and fans in awe.
Pakistan National Cricket Team, including Usama Mir, Mohammad Haris, and Wasim Junior, made their way to a shopping mall conveniently located near their team hotel. This shopping adventure unfolded at the bustling Mani Square, where the players had the opportunity to explore a wide range of items.
The presence of Pakistani cricketers in the mall generated excitement among shoppers and cricket enthusiasts. Locals couldn’t contain their joy as they witnessed Pakistan’s stars casually strolling through the mall.
Eager fans seized the chance to snap pictures with the players, creating unforgettable moments for all involved.
Beyond enjoying the limelight, the cricketers received warm wishes and support from the local crowd, expressing their hopes for the Pakistan national cricket team’s success in the upcoming matches.
Abdullah Shafique and Zaman Khan were also spotted relishing the shopping experience in Kolkata.
In a heartwarming gesture, Abdullah Shafique and Usama Mir purchased sarees for their family members. Meanwhile, Zaman Khan, Haris, and Wasim couldn’t resist the temptation to pick up some stylish clothing for themselves.
Saud Shakeel, the brains behind this shopping spree, suggested that Usama and Abdullah should also select gifts for their family members, leading to even more shopping delights.
The Pakistani cricketers had initially planned to catch a movie later in the day. However, these plans were ultimately canceled.
Before this shopping outing, Pakistan captain Babar Azam enjoyed some leisure time on the golf course in Kolkata, accompanied by a few coaches.
Head coach Grant Bradburn, bowling coach Morne Morkel, and Andrew Puttick engaged in golf activities with the Pakistan national cricket team skipper.
