When Babar Azam claimed he had found the "rishta picture" for Hassan Ali, other Pakistani cricketers rushed to poke fun at the right-arm pacer as well,
Hassan Ali had posted a picture of him in a sherwani. "Dress to impress, always," he had captioned it.
Babar Azam had quoted the tweet by Ali and wrote "Hasoo looking nice! Rishta pic lag rahi hai waisey," (this looks like a picture used for matchmaking purposes).
Multiple cricketers had commented below Azam's tweet, affirming what he said.
All-rounder Imad Wasim too commented that it looked like a "rishta picture" of the pacer.
Wasim went further and took another playful dig at Hassan Ali, saying that the picture must be old since he "only says yes yes now", saying indirectly that the bowler got married two years ago.
Batsman Imam Ul Haq tagged Shadab Khan in the thread, commenting:
"Now this is what you call a rishta picture."
Shadab responded to the tweet, saying that he also needed a shoot similar to Hassan Ali's.
Imam poked fun at the 22-year-old Shadab, saying that he will look more like a "student" than a "groom" at the shoot.
At Imam's comment, fast-bowler Wahab Riaz jumped in, asking Imam not to divert from the topic (Hassan Ali's rishta picture).
Pakistan's wicketkeeper-batsman Muhammad Rizwan agreed Imam was changing the topic.
Not to be outdone, Imam responded: "Bhabi will call" at which Hassan Ali jumped in the conversation and asked Imam to "go away", asking what proof he was referring to.
The banter between the Pakistani cricket team was enjoyed by thousands of viewers on the microblogging site.
