Meanwhile, in the latest turn of events, Hasan Ali, who is poised to lead Pakistan’s pace attack on the upcoming tour alongside ace speedster Shaheen Shah Afridi, once again caught the attention with his wit.
In a video, circulating on social media, the national cricketers were seen warming up in the field before Hasan Ali hilariously grappled with masseur Malang Ali.
The right-arm pacer manhandled Ali on the ground and raised his hands in a triumphant manner. His gesture left his teammates in splits while the masseur also gave it a laugh before Hasan ran away.

For the unversed, Pakistan’s ongoing training camp for the Australia tour will run until November 28.
Opening batter Imam-ul-Haq and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf will miss the entirety of the training camp due to their wedding festivities.
They are expected to join the squad in Lahore on 30th November, just before the team’s departure to Australia.
Pakistan’s quest for their first Test series victory over Australia in their backyard will commence on Dember 14.
It will be a tough challenge for left-handed opener Shan Masood, who became the Test captain after Babar Azam relinquished the role from all formats after his side’s dismal show in the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2023.
The Green Shirts will get an opportunity to get used to the testing Australian conditions as they will take on the Prime Minister’s XI in the four-day red-ball fixture at Manuka Oval from 6-9 December 2023.
