Shan Masood and Shadab Khan were involved in a heated exchange with each other during the game between Islamabad United and Karachi Kings in the ongoing Pakistan Super League 2024 (PSL 2024).

Both teams locked horns against each other on Thursday (March 7) in the 24th game of the PSL 2024. Shan Masood is leading Karachi Kings while Shadab is leading Islamabad in the competition. The exchange between the two captains took place during Islamabad United’s innings due to a caught-behind review.

On the fourth ball of the ninth over, Agha Salman played a sweep shot against left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz but failed to make good contact with the ball. Karachi appealed for a caught behind but the on-field umpire gave his decision in the favour of the batter.

Shan Masood was unhappy with the decision and decided to take the review. However, Shadab thought that his Karachi counterpart had exceeded the time limit for the review. This is when the Pakistan Test captain lost his cool and asked Shadab to return to his position and not intervene in the discussion between him and the umpire.

Naseem Shah makes fun of Shan Masood:

The on-field umpire eventually allowed Shan Masood’s review call to stand although it did not make much of a difference. The replays showed that the Salman had not edged the ball and the on-field umpire’s original decision was retained.

After the game ended, Naseem Shah decided to have some fun at the expense of Shan Masood. As the Karachi skipper was busy talking with Islamabad players, Naseem walked up to him and made fun of his fight with Shadab Khan by mimicking his actions.


Meanwhile, Naseem was not a part of the playing eleven for the game against Karachi. Shadab confirmed that the pacer was rested as a precautionary measure after being hit on his calf by a Shaheen Afridi throw during the game between Islamabad and Lahore Qalandars earlier this week.

Talking about the game, Islamabad beat Karachi by five wickets to register their fourth win in nine games. After restricting Karachi to 150 for 7, Islamabad chased down the total inside 19 overs.
