New Delhi: It is always fun to have an ear for banter between two teammates as was the case when Pakistani cricket star Shoaib Malik trolled teammate Ahmed Shehzad on Twitter. This was after Malik became the highest run-getter for Pakistan in T20 cricket.
Soon after the second T20 in Lahore on Wednesday, Malik tweeted, “Lahore, tussi great ho! today your support gave all Pakistani cricketers including me goosebumps. Feels so surreal #PakvsWXI.”
To Malik’s tweet, Shehzad replied, “Lhr toh great hai hi but tussi bhi bht great ho.. what an achievement in this historical series.. congratz bro @realshoaibmalik #PakvsWXI.”
And then came the punch as replying to Shehzad, Malik wrote, “Thank you bro kabhi mujhe bhi mauqa de apko great bolne ka.”
