Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan is known for harboring a deep bond of friendship with right-arm paceman Hasan Ali. Their antics are no secret to social media and they have publicly expressed mutual admiration for each other.
Recently, a funny incident took place during Shadab’s press conference ahead of the second ODI in Karachi. "You have a good friendship with Hassan Ali and this is probably the first time you are playing a series without him. How do you feel without your friend?" a journalist asked him as Hasan is missing out of the ODI series due to his back injury.
"We are friends, but you are making it sound like we are husband and wife," he answered as the room burst into laughter. "Of course I am missing him. He has been playing for the team for a long time, so not just me, the whole team is missing him," he later elaborated on the disruption of the team combination.
