The relationship between India and Pakistan may be at an all-time low. But, fans of the two nations clearly are not bound by borders. An image of a Pakistani fan wearing his team’s jersey with the name Dhoni on his back has become the latest talking point on social media.
Famous cricket statistician Mohandas Menon shared the image on his Twitter account with a post that read “A spectator wearing a Pakistani cricket jersey during the ongoing Boxing Day Test match at the MCG! 😀 #AusvPak”. The image soon went viral on social media.
Here are some reactions to the post

As a sports lover I loved this picture n want to see more such pictures. Hope we'll see test cricket between Pak n IND soon.@mohanstatsman— khan Agha خان آغا (@Khanaghaa) December 28, 2016
It may be recalled that an Indian cricket fan was detained by cops in Assam for wearing a jersey with Shahid Afridi's number embossed on it. Similarly, a Pakistani fan of Virat Kohli was jailed for hoisting the Indian flag on the roof of his house.
