India vs Afghanistan, Asia Cup 2018 Super Four: Cricket is just not a game in India, it is a religion and a way of life and this little Indian kid crying after India-Afghanistan encounter ended in a tie exemplifies just that. Ravindra Jadeja holed out in the deep when a solitary run was required off two balls to win. The match ended in a tie, but for Afghanistan, it was nothing short of a win on their way out of the ongoing Asia Cup. But what captured eyeballs was this little Indian kid crying after the match and his father trying to console him. It was later found out that Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar made a call to the little kid and it was only after that, that the little kid’s tears turned into a smile. It was the little kid’s father presumably who took to Twitter to share the bit. Amanpreet Singh, the kid’s father took to Twitter and his post read, “He is happy now and looking forward to watching the finals…Really kind of
