The ongoing series between Pakistan and Australia, taking place in Sydney, has provided us with much entertainment. In today’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 Pakistan-Australia dosti (because we love being friends with goray mulq). One Pakistani player thought differently.
@mahaaaak_ brought our attention to this masterpiece from today’s ceremony
The short clip shows desi Messi, Yasir Shah, trying to hold his laughter in, listening to the gulukaara singing our national anthem.
Having been retweeted more than 350 times since then, this little snippet from the opening ceremony has left the Internet in splits.
Some people think Yasir Shah is crying hearing the powerful words of Pakistani national anthem
While others chose to respond with a simple phrase
Some people are more curious about the singer
But everyone noticed what Shah tried hard to hide and failed, during the national anthem
Poor Yasir, hope he recovered soon after.
