A video of the Pakistan Cricket Team unloading their luggage in a truck at the Sydney Airport has been the talk of social media since yesterday.
Pakistan Cricket Team touched down in Australia on Friday. The incident seems to be the result of the mediocre arrangements made at the airport for the welcome of the players.
As per the images going viral on social media, several Pakistani players are seen loading their luggage from the truck. The luggage had to be transferred to the local terminal from the international terminal.
Players including Muhammad Rizwan, Muhammad Wasim Jr, and Team Manager Naveed Akram Cheema were seen loading and unloading the luggage.
As per media sources, players expressed dissatisfaction with the arrangements made for them. The team manager had declined to enlist assistance for the loading and handling of the player’s luggage. Hence, to save time, the players handled their luggage themselves.
Other reports claim that the arrangements were made but other players joined in after watching Muhammad Rizwan.
The video has created quite a ruckus on social media where fans are criticizing the management of the PCB for lack of facilities for the players.
Pakistan Cricket Team has reached Australia for the three-Test match series. The series will commence from December 14th, 2023. Meanwhile, players will resume their practice session on December 3rd, 2023 after taking a day’s rest on Saturday.
Pakistani players had a flight of more than 24 hours. Flying from Lahore, the team reached Dubai, and after a brief stop, they then flew to Australia. They reached Australia at 7:00 AM Friday PST.
The Test match series is part of the World Test Championship series. This time Pakistan will be playing under the captaincy of Shan Masood who replaced Babar Azam after his resignation. Pakistan won the Test series against Australia at their hometown back in 1995.
