AUCKLAND (Web Desk) – A Pakistani cricket fan reportedly came to rescue skipper Shahid Afridi and opener Ahmed Shehzad at Auckland airport when the two cricketers reached McDonald’s with having no local currency.

A video shared by TVNZ shows the fan, who maintained his identity as Waqas Naveed, expressing his happiness over ‘welcoming’ the Pakistani cricket team in New Zealand.

Naveed is seen saying that he will go to stadium to support Pakistani side on January 15 where they will face New Zealand in first T20 game, in the video.
