Pakistan’s leg-spinner Shadab Khan has always been a flamboyant personality and his on-field activities have often entertained the cricket fans. A similar incident took place when the all-rounder addressed the reporters in a press conference. A reporter asked him how he was feeling that this was probably the first time he was playing a series without his friend (Hasan Ali). To which the spinner hilariously replied that while they were indeed friends, the reporter was making it seem as if they have a "husband-wife" relationship. This hilarious response by Shadab left everyone in splits and all the reporters burst out in laughter. Pacer Hasan Ali, who recently got married to Samia Aarzoo, is ruled out of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2019 series due to a back injury.

Later, Shadab also posted the video on Twitter with another funny caption. “Dekh(See) Hasan Ali, humari dosti pressers mai bhi aa gayi hai (Our friendship came in media too). On a serious note, all the team is in good spirit for the #PAKvSL series, we will try to give it our all. #PakistanZindabad” read the video posted by the 20-year-old cricketer. Later, Shadab said that he and Ali have been the part of the team for a long time and the pacer will be missed not only by him but the whole Pakistan squad.

Shadab Khan has been around in the team for a while and will have a role to play in the series against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, Hasan burst into the scene with some terrific spells in ICC Champions Trophy 2019. However, the pacer's forms dipped in recent times and was dropped from the team in the later-half of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The right-arm bowler is currently recovering from a back injury and will want to make an effective comeback.
Talking about Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2019 series, the first match in Karachi was washed off due to rains and the second match will be played at the same venue on Monday. Despite the absence of Hasan Ali, the Pakistan team look quite strong and are also the favourites to clinch the series. On the other hand, Sri Lanka have named a depleted squad as many senior players have pulled out from the Pakistan tour.
