Imran Khan as a cricketer is always highly respected in India. He is a champion sportsman and his tweet congratulating Indian team be looked as that. Nothing to be read from Indo-Pak relations point of view.

Yes, very gracious indeed. Bridges need to be built, not walls. We hv just one life to live and friendship only enhances that. Hatred diminishes life completely.
