Pakistan fielded against Australia in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. There has been a lot of discussion and criticism about this match for a few days on the issue of Usman Khawaja in support of Gaza. Pakistan captain Shan Masood gave birth to another funny incident before the start of the Melbourne Test.
The Cummins-Warners were spending time in Melbourne’s indoor practice on Monday. Some Pakistani cricketers including Masood appeared at the practice ground with big day gifts for the Australian team and their families. The Australian cricketers were surprised to receive such a sudden gift from the opponent.
Australian sports journalist Daniel Charney posted a video. In the video, Masood is seen handing over a gift basket to Pat Cummins to wish the Australian team and their families on the big day. At this time, children are given colorful chocolates.
Cummins was overwhelmed by such a warm gift from Pakistan. “It’s great,” he told ESPN Australia. Christmas gifts, with lollipops for kids. Really great stuff. We have always had a good relationship with the Pakistan team. The previous visit was also great. It shows their generosity that they thought of us like this.’
Masud invited the hosts to bat first after winning the toss in the Melbourne Test on Tuesday. After the rain, the game started again. Till writing this report, Australia has scored 154 runs for 2 wickets.
