Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik is winning over the internet for his warm gesture towards Afghan cricketer Aftab Alam.

The video and picture of Malik consoling Alam after losing the game to Pakistan on Friday has won hearts.

Pakistan beat Afghanistan in a nail-biting encounter in Abu Dhabi on September 21 during the ongoing Asia Cup tournament.

Pakistan chased the target in the last three balls when Shoaib Malik smashed a six and then four in two balls from Aftab Alam.

Malik remained unbeaten at 51 runs.

However, after the match, Alam broke down on the cricket ground and Malik quickly went to console him.

"Even good bowlers, when they're bowling at the end, the situation is different. As the batsmen, we can charge them. Would like to congratulate them. Every day they've been improving. I think they're a great side," Malik was quoted saying by NDTV.
