Pakistan’s leg-spinner Shadab Khan shares a wonderful relationship with Hassan Ali. Both these players are great mates and enjoy each other’s company a lot. Their bromance is quite evident on social media and the fans surely enjoy it. However, Hassan isn’t a part of the ODI team that is currently playing Sri Lanka at home. The fast bowler was ruled out due to a back spasm and thus lost the opportunity to play an ODI game at home.

He is currently undergoing rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. When Shadab Khan attended the press conference ahead of the 2nd ODI that is scheduled to be played on Monday, he was asked about how he was feeling about playing in the absence of his best friend. The youngster decided to see the lighter side of things when asked this question. Jokingly, he even said that their relationship is like a ‘husband-wife’ relationship. As soon as he said this, everyone present at the venue burst out into laughter.

Shadab Khan said that everyone misses Hassan Ali

When Shadab Khan came up with this reply, one of the reporters even said: ‘Best of the day!’. But again, he was asked the same question. On this occasion, Shadab said that everyone in the team will miss Hassan Ali. He said that the pacer is someone who is liked by all. The leggie added that Hassan often makes the situation in the dressing room lighter with his jokes and talks.

After the press conference, Shadab Khan shared the video when he was asked this question. He also tagged Hassan Ali and wrote that their friendship talks have entered the press conference as well. Adding to this, he said that the team is in a good spirit for the series. He even mentioned in his tweet that the ‘Men in Green‘ will try to give their best against Sri Lanka.

“Dekh @RealHa55an, humari dosti pressers mai bhi aa gayi hai. On a serious note, all the team is in good spirit for the #PAKvSL series, we will try to give it our all. #PakistanZindabad,” he wrote in his tweet.
