Pakistani cricketer Shadab Khan gave a witty response while speaking to media on Sunday when a reporter asked him how he felt about the fast bowler Hassan Ali — being left out of the squad for Pakistan’s series against Sri Lanka.

When asked how he felt about playing in a series without his friend Hassan for the first time, Shadab said: “It’s just friendship, you make it sound like our relationship is that of husband and wife”.

“I do miss him because we have been playing together for a while now. Not just me but the entire team misses him as he’s always jolly”, he added.


Shadab also took to social media and tweeted: “See Hassan, our friendship has made it to the press well”.

“On a serious note, all the team is in good spirit for Pakistan vs Sri Lanka series, we will try to give it our all,” Shadab added.
