David Warner and Shaheen Shah Afridi are two entertainers and the fans are sure to have fun when these two are out there on the field. In a grueling ongoing third Test between Pakistan and Australia, Warner and Shaheen engaged in a standoff and everyone saw the funny side to it. The incident happened during the last over of the third day, and even Warner and Shaheen were giggling afterwards.
The incident happened in the third over of Australia’s second innings and it was the last ball of the day as well. Shaheen bowled a short one, but Warner defended it comfortably to see the ball land right under his feet. Shaheen came charging towards Warner, and the left-handed batter also walked towards him. Throughout, the Australian batter was smiling and it also made Shaheen chuckle.
The television cameras showed Pat Cummins and Marnus Labuschagne laughing in the changing room as well. Interestingly, during the incident, Warner had imitated Labuschagne, saying “no-run” loudly.
