Shadab’s witty reply soon caught the attention of fans who praised the all-rounder for the comeback.

Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan celebrated his 24th birthday on October 4. As wishes poured in from his fans and teammates, the cricketer took time out to thank them for the greetings. Replying to Pakistan middle-order batter Iftikhar Ahmad, the 24-year-old engaged in banter and wrote, “Pehle shaddy phir shaddy bhai phir shaddy bhaijaan ho gaye. Thank u ifti bhai". The online banter, however, did not seem to go down well with a fan, who chose to troll Shadab with a piece of unsolicited advice to focus on the T20 World Cup.

But Shadab being Shadab hit the ball out of the park with his reply.

“Abi NZ mai aadhi raat hai Physio ne bola hai rest kero time off lo aap kehte hai tu ulta latak ke training start kar de? (It’s midnight in New Zealand, physio told us to take a rest. If you say, should I hang upside down and start training),” the Pakistani all-rounder quipped.
