BRISBANE: An hour after the scuffle report between talented leg-spinner Yasir Shah and paceman Wahab Riaz, both players have released a joint video message, denying media reports.
Wahab Riaz, while speaking in the video message, stated that he and Yasir are good friends, it was true that they had a faceoff during the football game, but that was part of the game, which ended right there.
Wahab further stated that the team is united and the two will play together in the first Test against Australia and will give their hundred percent.

Pakistan will commence their Australia tour with a day-night Test match against the hosts at The Gabba on Thursday.
The match will start at 08:00 am PST.
The Pakistan team, six years in the making and armed with insider knowledge from coach Mickey Arthur, are poised to make history in Australia, veteran skipper Misbah-ul-Haq said on Wednesday.
Misbah, who exerts a calming influence on the mercurial Pakistanis, believes the side has developed into one that can finally deliver a series win after 11 fruitless tours to Australia.
Pakistan has won only four of their 32 Tests Down Under and have lost their last nine Tests since their last victory in Sydney in 1995.
No team from the sub-continent has won a Test series in Australia, further underlining the massive undertaking.
