Pakistan are all set to host the South African team for the two-match Test series, followed by the three-match T20I series. The hosts have already landed on their soil, and both the teams will be looking forward to turning tables in their favour. Talking a bit off the field, Pakistan’s leggie Shadab Khan and former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed engaged in friendly banter on Twitter while talking over a workout video of the national team that was put up by the Pakistan Cricket Board.
The PCB posted the video where all the members of the team are seen indulging in extensive gym sessions. They were seen doing weights, treadmills, strength exercises, etc. Captioning the post, PCB wrote, “Sweating it out in the gym are our boys as they gear up for Pak v SA Tests.”
In the same light, the young spinner Shadab Khan tried to tickle the former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed by tagging batsman Imamul Haq. He joked how Ahmed is running two kilometers here also as a part of his fitness regime.
“Imam Saifi Bhai idhr bhe 2 km bhag rahy hain, (Imam, Sarfaraz is running 2 km here as well) he tweeted.
Sarfaraz replied to the comment stating that he would like to run two Km with South Africa’s ace batsman Faf du Plessis. He wrote, “ Oh Bhai faf ke sath karna hai mene 2 km).
Here is the conversation between Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shadab Khan
