The havoc of the coronavirus has also been seen in Pakistan. In this country, more than one lakh 32 thousand people have been caught in this deadly epidemic. The announcement of the lockdown of the Pakistani government had brought about the death of people hungry. Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi came forward to help such people. He has become the first ‘high-profile’ cricketer to be infected with this dangerous virus.

Afridi was continuously helping people with the help of his foundation. During this time, he also distributed relief material in the famous Sri Lakshminarayan temple in Karachi. It seems that during the relief work, he has become a victim of infection. His treatment is on, fans are expecting him to get well soon.
Thanking all supporters of @SAFoundationN #DonateKaroNa Ration Drive, for enabling us to distribute ration & to help those living in the remote areas of Balochistan.

It is notable that Shahid Afridi along with his foundation was helping the needy during the lockdown. However, during this he was also in a lot of controversies. The reason for this was Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his bullying on Kashmir.
He had opened fire against PM Modi and India, due to which he had to face criticism in his country too. Afridi, who played for Pakistan from 1998 to 2018, has played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 99 T20 Internationals.
