Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif on Thursday inaugurated a cricket stadium in Khyber Agency with Shahid Afridi.
“It is an honour and a privilege to inaugurate a stadium in Khyber Agency with COAS Raheel Sharif. You are Pakistan’s hero and my hero too,” Afridi tweeted.
The cricketer thanked the army chief for his support, and the work he has done for Pakistan.
“You are a national hero, and I wish you the very best in your days ahead. May Allah bless you more,” he added, tweeting a photo of the two hugging.
The inauguration of the cricket stadium is among Gen Raheel’s last engagements as army chief. The COAS is set to retire Nov 29 and is spending his last week as army chief on farewell visits around the country.
