The ICC World T20 is scheduled to start on October 17, and the India vs Pakistan will be played at the Dubai International Stadium on October 24.
As the photo of the fan’s request to Sharma went viral, it left desi folks amused online, many coming up with many jokes and memes while reacting to it.
In 2017, the ace Indian batsman had won hearts online as he arranged the air 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 his home in Colombo.
