Pak vs Aus: The Pakistan team is all set and ready for the upcoming mighty challenge of the Australian series. However, things don’t seem quite well within the team as a video of a heated exchange came out just before the start of the Australian series. And it’s none other than the former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed who had words exchanged with the junior teammate Saud Shakeel. Check out the video below.
To provide context, the Pakistan team, ahead of the series, is set to play a four-day practice match against Australia’s President XI. However, just before the practice match at the nets in Canberra, Sarfaraz and Shakeel engage in a war of words. The tour, which poses a mighty challenge for Pakistan, started on a bad note and not with the right energy.
Well, two boys from Karachi engaged in the exchange of words, which went viral. In the video, Shakeel says, “How long will I continue to be of use to you?” To which Sarfaraz replied, “You won’t be of any use to me. To begin with, I never instructed you to do anything. I never requested you to make a swap. I swapped with the person I intended to.” (translated from hindi/urdu)
While it’s not the first time Sarfaraz has shown his anger towards a teammate, we have seen him on many occasions having heated conversations, whether for bowling or catching. It’s not just him; we have also seen others in the cricket world engaged in such heated exchanges.
Now, every fan who watched this video is hoping that this war of words will end in the practice session, considering the mighty task of defeating Australia in their homeland, which India successfully did the last two times.
