Pakistani cricketers kept loading luggage into trucks at Sydney Airport
New Delhi. Pakistan cricket team has reached Australia to play a 3-match test series. The team led by the new captain Shan Masood would be welcomed in Australia in a way that Pakistani players had hardly ever imagined. A video is becoming increasingly viral on social media in which Pakistani players are seen loading their own luggage into a truck at Sydney Airport. Pakistan’s squad consisting of 18 players and 17 supporting staff and management officials have reached Australia. Pakistan team will start the Test against the hosts through this series which is part of the ICC World Test Championship.
Pakistani players (PAK vs AUS) have reached Sydney from Lahore via Dubai. Normally, there should have been officials from the Pakistan Embassy at the airport, but neither any official from the Pakistani Embassy nor any official from Cricket Australia was there. In such a situation, Pakistani players and officials had to pick up their luggage themselves and load it into the truck.
