In the Bangladesh Premier League, Naseem Shah and Azam Khan had a humorous exchange during which Naseem first imitated Azam before trying to embrace his Pakistani colleague.
In the BPL match between Khulna Tigers and Comilla Victorians, the two countrymen found themselves on opposing sides.
Naseem remained upbeat despite Azam entering the field with his team down by 197-2 following a 184-run partnership between Tamim Iqbal (95 off 61) and Shai Hope (91 not out off 55).
Azam provided his team with a strong finale by hammering a four, a six, and two singles in only four balls, but only after the youthful fast gave him an entertaining welcome.
Watch: Azam Khan And Naseem Shah Involved In A Massive Fight
Azam Khan resisted Naseem’s attempts to hug and shake the batter’s hand both times, and instead pushed the child away. When Naseem walked behind Azam with his arms outstretched in an impersonation of the Khulna Tigers player’s motion, Azam Khan grinned to indicate that the antics were all in good humor.

Naseem had every reason to be happy since Comilla Victorians would go on to finish an incredible chase with 10 balls left. A burst of seven sixes in 13 balls contributed to Johnson Charles’ innings of 107 not out off 57 balls, and Mohammad Rizwan added 73 off 39.
Azam Khan scored 12 runs in four deliveries he faced, which included a six and four.
Whereas, Naseem Shah could only grab one wicket in his four-over spell while conceding 34 runs. Naseem had earlier trapped Mahmudul Hasan Joy for 1 inside the powerplay.
