Pakistan Test skipper Shan Masood, Babar Azam and Sarfaraz Ahmed were involved in a hilarious conversation regarding an outing after the end of day's play during the ongoing warm-up match against Australia's Prime Minister XI in Canberra. In a conversation captured on the stump mic, the trio can be heard talking about the outing plan in the middle of the match which ends with Babar breaking down in laughter. “Hum time se ready ho jayenge gaye (We'll get ready on time)," Masood said. “Ap time peye aa jana, aap log 3 log log honge na (Please come on time, you'll be three guys, right?," Sarfaraz said. “Aa teeeja kera aa gaya (Where did the third one came from?)," Babar remarked leaving all of them in splits.
