In a video that has gone viral, Pakistani cricketer Hassan Ali was seen engaging in a fun wrestling match with team masseuse Malang Ali. The video was uploaded by Sports Paktv on their YouTube channel.

The Pakistani Test team will tour Australia for three Test matches scheduled from December 14 to January 7, 2024. After the 2023 ICC World Cup, Pakistani cricket has seen several changes, including the departure of Babar Azam in his role as captain.

Shan Masood will lead the team in his first stint as Test captain. He has been appointed as Pakistan’s captain for the ICC World Test Championship for the 2023-25 ​​session after taking over the reins from Babar Azam last week.

Left-handed opening batsman Saim Ayub and right-arm fast bowler Khurram Shahzad earned their maiden Test call-ups for the three-match series.

All-rounder Faheem Ashraf, who last featured in Tests for Pakistan during England’s tour of Pakistan in late 2022, has returned to the team.

Left-arm pacer Mir Hamza, who took 32 wickets at 20.88 in the 2023-24 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, and right-arm pacer Mohammed Waseem Jr, also return to the team.

The two fast bowlers were part of the Pakistan team during New Zealand’s tour of Pakistan that took place from December 2022 to January 2023.

“The team has been assembled keeping in mind the challenging Australian conditions. We have kept the pitches in mind and added more fast bowling resources to the team to ensure that the management is flexible with the team combinations in all the three Test matches,” president selector Wahab Riaz said, according to an official statement.

“Saim Ayub has been added to the squad after his exceptional domestic season this year. He impressed with the bat during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and the Pakistan Cup, which drives the case for his selection. His inclusion will strengthen our squad.” “The batting line-up is strong,” he added.

He said Pakistan has started the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 ​​really well, after their success in Sri Lanka earlier this year.

“We hope that the team can continue this momentum in Australia as well. We have tried to ensure that the team has all the necessary resources to succeed in Australia,” Riaz said.

Pakistan squad for Australia Tests: Shan Masood (captain), Aamir Jamal, Abdullah Shafiq, Abrar Ahmed, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Imam ul Haq, Khurram Shehzad, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Wasim.
