Day 4 The ongoing third test between Pakistan and Australia at Gadaffi Stadium, Lahore saw rivalry between Shaheen Afridi and David Warner continue, with the Australian opening reaching a good half-century before the Pakistani pacer let his stump fly with a brilliant pass. The competition, of course, was only curbed to cricket, when Afridi shook Warner’s hand and the two turned to laughter before the batsman passed after getting 51 of 91 passes in Australia’s second essay.
In the 29th half, Warner’s outside shot was disallowed by Shaheen. The ball is swung and bitten backwards to hit the stump of the left -handed batsman. After the dismissal, Afridi celebrated it with his signature style while raising his hand. Warner and Shaheen had a friendly chat after the dismissal and the left -handed tailor shook hands with Warner.

On Day 3 of the Test, the image of Warner and Shaheen went viral as the two joked friendly at the final match of the day. Shaheen had done a short bowling, and Warner held on comfortably to see the ball land right under his feet.
Shaheen walks towards Warner and they both take a short look before they both break it up with a chuckle of laughter.
In the ongoing third Test, Australia placed Pakistan a target of 351. Usman Khawaja played an unbeaten knockout of 104 runs. David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne also made 51 and 36 shots.
Earlier in the first half, Pakistan were defeated for 268 after Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc took nine wickets between them.
