Scores of Pakistan cricketers are taking part in the ongoing Global T20 Canada 2019 or GT20 2019. Spinner Shadab Khan and fast-bowler Wahab Riaz who were part of the Pakistan’s squad in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 are also participating in the T20 league. While Wahab is part of the Brampton Wolves, Shadab plays for Edmonton Royals. As the two teams faced-off, there was a funny incident involving the two Pakistan cricketers.

During the 15th over of the Edmonton Royals’ run-chase, Wahab bowled a slower bouncer to Shadab which unsettled the batsman. After leaving the ball, Shadab went towards Wahab and in a lighter way said that it was pitch doing the trick not the bowler. However, the fast-bowler was quick to respond and indicated that it was indeed his trick not the pitch. Commentators also enjoyed the moment and were heard laughing.
