The ongoing series between Pakistan and Australia, taking place in Sydney, has provided us with much entertainment. In yesterday’s test match alone, Australia won the toss, chose to bat first and closed at 365/3, with Warner scoring a century in the first session, breaking Majid Khan’s previously held record (against India).
However, today’s opening ceremony has taken the cake in terms of entertainment.
The Aussies decided it was a good idea for an opera singer to sing the Pakistani national anthem. While for any other person, it would be considered a great step towards Aus vs Pak dosti (because we love being friends with goray mulq). One Pakistani player thought differently.
The short clip shows desi Messi, Yasir Shah, trying to hold his laughter in, listening to the gulukaara singing our national anthem.
