ICC World T20 is scheduled to start on October 17th and India vs Pakistan will be played at Dubai International Stadium on October 24th.
As the photo of the fan’s request to Sharma went viral, it amused desi people online, with many coming up with lots of jokes and memes while reacting to them.
In 2017, the Indian ace drummer won hearts online by arranging the plane ticket for a Sri Lankan fan, Mohamed Nilam, who had to return home to visit his father who needed surgery. Sharma also later met the fan at her house in Colombo.
