Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah couldn’t contain his giggle during the national anthem at the Sydney Cricket Ground yesterday, but in all fairness, his laughter was justified.

Prior to the start of the third and final Test against Australia, the Men in Green lined up for Pakistan’s national anthem. While other team members maintained their restraint during the opera style version of the anthem, Yasir continued on with his laughter.

Australian Peter Handscomb wants to take ‘world-class’ Yasir Shah head-on

The reaction drew some response from Twitterati as well, with most users siding with the Swabi-born due to the unusual version of the anthem.

Don’t want to deprive Australians of chance to see Yasir Shah, says Mickey Arthur

Pakistan currently trail in the three-match Test series 2-0.

    How low has this nation gone? They find such an idiotic reaction by our country’s representative amuzing. But then what can you say about people who have let those extremists feel at home. They have “raised their voices ” against extremism by dressing up like extremists, by growing facial hair like extremists and by speaking the arabic language like extremists. Recommend
