Rain unexpectedly stopped playing during the Asia Cup 2023 match between Pakistan and India. India has scored 147 runs at that point while taking 2 wickets in 24.1 overs.
The sudden involvement of Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman as it started to rain was really endearing. Zaman assisted in the attempts to cover the wicket and the outfield in addition to the ground personnel.
Zaman diligently helped to keep the playing surface dry by carrying covers and trying his utmost to prevent serious damage to the field and wicket.
Fakhar Zaman is an amazing human being tbh. so nice to see this pic.twitter.com/Nz5qQWLYaY

Best moment and hero of the match,
