The Twitter handle of PCB shared a video of meet-ups between the India and Pakistan stars.
It has been seen that when Pant came to meet Shaheen, the lefty pacer hilariously said, “Yaar main soch raha hu aapki tarah bas batting shuru kar du, ek haath se chhakke lagaau (I’m thinking of becoming a batter like you, start hitting sixes with a single hand).”
Pant didn’t hold back himself from throwing the banter and said, “fast bowler ho toh effort lagaana padega sir! Compulsory hai (If you’re a fast bowler, you have to put in efforts. It’s compulsory). ” Then the wicket-keeper of India also checked on the condition of Afridi and asked how long would it take for him to recover, to which the Pakistan pacer replied, “5 weeks.”
Eventually, the ace bowler of Pakistan is ruled out from the Asia Cup due to injury and now is in rehab mode which is going to be a big blow for Pakistan in this tournament.
Both teams will start their campaign in this tournament by facing off against each other in a high-voltage clash on 28th August. India will surely look up to settle the score after the 10-wicket defeat from their arch-rival in their last meet in the T20 WC in 2021.
