Both India and Pakistan are leaving no stones unturned in their preparation ahead of the high-octane clash between them in the Asia Cup.
In between, players of both the teams met each other in Dubai and there were some hilarious exchanges. India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant met injured Shaheen Afridi and their conversation is winning netizens across the globe.
When Rishabh came to meet Shaheen, the Pakistan 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 and start hitting sixes with a single hand).
In response, Pant hilariously replied, ‘Fast bowler ho toh effort lagaana padega sir! Compulsory hai (If you’re a fast bowler, you have to put in efforts. It is compulsory).
The Indian wicketkeeper then asked Shaheen on how long would it take for him to recover.
In reply, the Pakistan pacer said, “five weeks.”
The clip of the video shared by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on twitter is liked by cricket buffs across the globe.
Notably, India are the defending champions in the tournament. The Men in Blue are looking forward to maintain their good run in the mega tournament.
