Former Pakistani Spinner Arshad Khan Now Drives A Uber Cab in Australia

Ganesh Birle, a Facebook user got a pleasant surprise on Monday, August 31, 2015 when he was travelling in a Uber cab in Australia. He realised his taxi driver was Arshad Khan, the former Pakistani spinner.

On Facebook, Ganesh wrote:

He was the driver of our cab and we started chatting, he told me that he is from Pakistan and lives in Sydney. Also that he has been to Hyderabad many times when he was playing for Lahore Badshahs something in ICL. After which I asked him his full name and then I was shocked to see his face which I could partially recognise. I shook his hand and left.

He was avoiding the conversation all the time, but at the same time he couldn’t help but talk about his India connection. Imagine he introduced himself as ‘I from Pakistan [sic] but I have been here in Sydney for long time now’. Also like a good Uber driver he offered us water and stuff when we sat in the car.

Ganesh also posted a screenshot of his Uber driver on Facebook:
