British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner arrived at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in a bright tuktuk to attend the highly anticipated match as the historic maiden Test between Pakistan and England went on despite a virus fear.
Christian Turner, a British ambassador, liked the vibrant and lively rickshaw as he took in the Pakistani version of desi culture and saw a match between two teams that had not been played in 17 years.
Turner, 50, shared a clip while donning a Pakistan-England jersey to support both teams. He surprised everyone by speaking Urdu and Pothohari languages.
Sharing his thoughts in Urdu, he said Pakistan and England have reached new heights in the cricket world. Recalling England’s triumph in previous encounters of the T20 World cup, he said it’s time to watch the action in a long format.
Before getting into the three-wheeler, he said to the rickshaw driver, “Raja Ji, let’s travel to Pindi stadium to watch the match.”
In a short period of time, the video received hundreds of likes and was shared on other social media platforms.
