A teenage Pakistan boy, who survived in terrorist attacks in the Army Public School in 2014, met the cricket legends of Pakistan during the second day’s play between Pakistan and England at Headingley on Saturday.
Waleed Khan survived a dozen bullets during the attacks which left some 150 plus kids and teachers killed in one of the most barbaric attacks in Pakistan. He now plays cricket and studies in Birmingham.
Waleed was invited as a special guest by the Test Match Special commentary team to Headingley to share the horrific experience of the attacks and his life which changed after the attacks.
“Sometimes the real superheroes live in the hearts of the children who have fought the biggest battles” Waleed from APS school is one of our brave souls who survived one of the darkest days of our Nation. His strength is as Great as any man I know. @waqyounis99 @iramizraja pic.twitter.com/dLSBKg0tar

Pakistan greats appreciated the bravery of Waleed and shared some good vibes with the teenager.
