Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali share one of the healthiest camaraderie in the Pakistan national team. Back in August 2019, Shadab was one of the few Pakistan cricketers to attend Hasan’s wedding with Indian girl Samia Aarzoo. In 2018 during the Men in Green’s tri-nation series in Zimbabwe, Shadab emulated Hasan’s bomb-explosion celebration after the latter pulled a neck muscle.
The duo was again involved in a healthy banter, this time before the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The Islamabad United uploaded a video where Faheem Ashraf, Rumman Raees and Zafar Gohar was seen cheering for the franchise. Thereafter, Hasan shared the video, saying that yellow, the colour of Peshawar Zalmi, is greater than the colour of the United.
Hasan has played a key role thus far for the Zalmi. The 25-year-old from Mandi Bahauddin, Punjab took to Twitter and wrote, “Yellow > red,”
Here is Hasan Ali’s post

Shadab took it as a chance to hilariously troll Hasan Ali. In his reply, Shadab wrote that the United have won two titles compared to the Zalmi’s one. He replied to Hasan and wrote, “2 PSL trophies > 1 PSL trophy,” Even as the United won the championship in 2016 and 2018, the Zalmi got their hands on the prestigious trophy back in 2017.
Here is Shadab’s reply
Koi nai is saal 2 > 2 kr dain gai 💪🏼

Earlier when Hasan got married in Dubai, Shadab had a chance of showering love on Hasan. Shadab uploaded a picture where Hasan was seen doing his trademark celebration with the leg-spinner and wife Samia.
He captioned the picture and wrote, “These two people came into my life as friends, one became my best friend and the other one wife. I feel lot of similarities in these two and they both feel i am annoying. never mind i promised myself no matter what i will annoy u both forever,”

The United will be playing the opening game of PSL 2020 against defending champions Quetta Gladiators, captained by Sarfaraz Ahmed, at the National Stadium in Karachi on February 20. Zalmi’s first match is on February 21 against the Karachi Kings at the very venue.
