Sarfaraz Ahmed and Saud Shakeel engaged in a heated exchange during Pakistan’s training session in Canberra before their upcoming Test series against Australia.
A video capturing their argument surfaced on a YouTube channel, revealing a conversation between the two Karachi players.
“For how long will I continue to be of use to you?” Shakeel questioned.
Sarfaraz retorted, stating, “You won’t be of any use to me. To begin with, I never instructed you to do anything. I never requested you to make a swap. I swapped with the person I intended to.”
Shakeel countered, saying, “You still made the swap, so I was beneficial to you.”
Seems like saud is still angry that he was benched for 33 games by sarfaraz

In a separate incident during an intra-squad practice match preceding their journey to face Australia, Sarfaraz appealed for a timed-out dismissal against Saud Shakeel.
Shakeel was taking an unusually long time to walk out to bat. Observing the delay, Ahmed sought a dismissal, prompting Shakeel, who was casually strolling towards the pitch, to hastily sprint without even putting on his gloves.
Upon reaching the crease, the umpire checked his watch and declared Shakeel not out. This led to a jubilant response from Shakeel’s teammates, who cheered and clapped at the funny incident.
