A prominent journalist and founder of Afghan Peace Watch, Habib Khan posted on X how ”an Indian taxi driver refuses to accept payment from Afghan cricketers, saying that he loves Afghanistan. This touching gesture reminds me of the incredible hospitality I, as an Afghan, have experienced during my travels in India. Afghanistan-India dosti zindabad”.
