After Hasan Ali is dismissed, David Warner humorously imitates the latter’s celebration
After Nathan Lyon dismissed Hasan Ali on the penultimate day of the ongoing final Test between Australia and Pakistan, David Warner delightfully celebrated his wicket in front of him in his own style. Before declaring the second innings, Australia scored 227 runs for the loss of seven wickets, setting a target of 351 runs for Pakistan to chase down in order to win.
When Warner exercised his style of celebration during the match, he celebrated Ali’s wicket in a very amusing way. Hasan Ali was bowled by Lyon in the 88th over of the innings after scoring 13 runs off 16 deliveries. Ali had struck the off-spinner for a six and a four in two deliveries straight before losing his wicket. Lyon added the fourth wicket to his tally with this catch.
Hasan Ali is noted for his unusual style of celebration, and he has been spotted celebrating wickets with his fans numerous times at the boundary. Warner, who had been assigned to the forward-short leg, replicated Ali’s celebration to send him back to the locker room.
The teams couldn’t agree on a result in Rawalpindi and Karachi, therefore the first two games of the three-match Test series ended in a deadlock. The third and final Test against Pakistan was won by Australia after Pakistan was bowled for 235 in the second innings. After a 24-year absence, Australia returned to Pakistan and won the Benaud-Qadir Trophy by defeating Pakistan 1-0 on the fifth day of the final Test match.
After two disappointing games in Rawalpindi and Karachi, the Aussies may finally rejoice at the end. Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon combined for eight wickets, with the former picking up three wickets in 15.1 overs and the latter claiming a five-wicket haul. The half-centuries of Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam were in vain as the visitors, who had the upper hand during the sessions, overwhelmed the hosts and wrote history, while Australia consolidated their top status in the WTC Points table.
