The Pakistan Cricket Team is currently engaged in a five-match T20I series against England as part of their preparation for the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be hosted by the West Indies and the United States of America. During a break from the field, Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan experienced a humorous encounter with a fan.

While waiting for her chance to take a picture with the international star, the fan took a playful jab at Shadab, asking, “Tum itna chakka kyu khaate ho? (Why do you concede so many sixes?)”. This unexpected question left Shadab momentarily speechless, but he graciously proceeded to take the photo with the fan.

Pakistan’s preparations for the T20 World Cup 2024 have faced some challenges, with two of the three completed games in the series being washed out due to rain. Additionally, they do not have any scheduled warm-up matches, having focused primarily on T20I matches in recent times.

 

Before the England series, Pakistan played a three-match series against Ireland and a five-match series against New Zealand. The T20 World Cup campaign for Pakistan will commence on June 6 with a match against co-hosts, the United States of America, at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas.

One of the most anticipated matches, against arch-rivals India, is set for June 9 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.
