Major General Asif Ghafoor replied back to his tweet and said in a very pleasant casual tone that had Mr. Afridi been there, nobody would have given him an opportunity to bat. The video of DG ISPR playing cricket ever since has been afloat on social media.
Thank you Lala. Yes missed you. If you were there no one would have given me the bat!
Great to see the vibrant youth of Karachi. Thanks to sacrifices of Sindh Rangers, Police, LEAs and the resilient Pakistanis. https://t.co/etAlspewIR

DG ISPR also appreciated the hard work of the security agencies who risked their lives to fight back the menace of terrorism that halted the city life of Karachi. Mr. Ghafoor also gave a shout out to the resilient people of Karachi who supported the operations in Karachi. In the video, the ISPR chief was seen taking selfies with the youth.
The normalcy has been brought back into the air of Karachi as fear is lifted up after a massive clean-up operation by security agencies. The city has now been hosting several night events for the families including various food festivals while the recent musical concert of Strings and Junoon has been the talk of the town that was attended by a large number of people.
