Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz come to blows during training
KARACHI: The Pakistanâ€™s team management is likely to take action against fast-bowler Wahab Riaz and leg-spinner Yasir Shah after the teammates were involved in a scuffle during a practice session in Brisbane on Wednesday.
According to a PCB official, the duo came to blows following an argument while playing football on the eve of the opening Test against Australia starting from Thursday.

â€œNothing major happened but that is a disciplinary breach,â€ the official told The Express Tribune. â€œThe team management may take action against the two players after hearing from them.â€
Pakistan players have a history of altercations during international tours with the brawl between former fast-bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Muhammad Asif in Johannesburg in 2007 ICC World Twenty20 being the most infamous one.
The two were involved in a dressing-room spat which resulted in Asif being struck by a bat on his left thigh. Akhtar was later sent home over the disciplinary breach.
However, later, both players buried the hatchet by posting a picture together from Yasirâ€™s twitter account.
