Pakistan is ready to fight with Sri Lanka in their home ground. After 2009, Sri Lanka is playing a full bilateral series in Pakistan soil. This is the special series for both the teams. Before the second ODI, Shadab Khan addressed the press conference where he gave the hilarious reply to the journalist.
A special series for Pakistan because they are playing the bilateral series after many years. It is also a significant series as this is the first assignment for the newly appointed Pakistan Head Coach. Misbah ul Haq, the head coach and chief selector, with bowling coach Waqar Younis are assuring that Pakistan dominates the series. It will be interesting to see the team’s performance.
While addressing media before the match, Shadab Khan gave a funny answer when he was asked if he was missing Hasan Ali. The pacer Hasan Ali is suffering from back spasm and has been given rest for the series. Shadab with the witty reply also remarked that the whole team is missing the pacer.
“How are you feeling without your friend Hassan Ali? Are you missing him?” a reporter asked.
“We are friends but you are making it sound like we are husband and wife,” Shadab Khan gave a hilarious reply leaving the entire room in splits.
Question: How are you feeling without your friend Hassan Ali. Are you missing him?
