Tall Afghan who travelled to India to watch cricket is refused entry to hotels

A giant eight foot tall Afghan cricket fan has been caught out by his height and refused entry to hotels in India where locals have flocked to see him.
Sher Khan pitched up for Afghanistan versus the West Indies in Lucknow, in the north of the country, but getting a room turned out to be a tall order.
Hoteliers were stumped by his 8ft 2in height and blocked him entry, so Khan trudged to the nearest police station on Tuesday night to make an appeal.
The locals were bowled over by the colossus who was taken to the Hotel Rajdhani by a police escort, with hundreds gathering to catch a glimpse of Khan. 
'As many as 200 people have come to see him. He is very disturbed,' the hotel's owner told ANI. 
The surging crowds continued into the following day and Khan was taken by a police guard to Ekana Stadium on Wednesday for the first ODI, NDTV reported.
Khan, of Kabul, who is staying in the city for another four days, watched his side get battered by the West Indies. Roston Chase's superb all-round performance led the West Indies to a seven-wicket win. 
Afghanistan is hosting the West Indies in Lucknow city for three ODIs, three T20s and a one-off test.Sultan Kosen, a 36-year-old from Turkey, stands at 8ft 3in, making him the tallest man on the planet. 
According to the Guinness World Records, Kosen is the first person in more than a decade to measure over 8ft and is one of only 10 confirmed cases in history.
While he is the tallest man in the world, his family members are all average size.
Kosen was also normal height up until his growth spurt when he was 10 years old.
His massive size is the result of a condition known as 'pituitary gigantism,' which is caused by an over-production of growth hormone.
Kosen, who was unable to complete school because of his size, worked as a farmer to support his family. 
In 2016, he traveled to Hollywood for his starring role in the film Achieving the Impossible. 
It was also revealed at the time that he accepted an offer to work on a second movie that was shooting in Australia.
