Pakistan wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan and Australia vice-captain Steve Smith were involved in a light moment in the ongoing second Test at the National Stadium in Karachi.

The incident happened during the 71st over of the Australian first innings. The hosts were confused whether to take DRS against Smith or not. With time running out, Rizwan casually put his arm around Smith’s as shoulders and asked him if they should go for the DRS or not.

The Pakistan decided against taking a review and the batter went on to score 72 in the first innings.

Australia have scored 360/6 with Usman Khawaja amassing 160 runs before his dismissal. His partnership with Smith kept Australia in a dominating position.

Nathan Lyon (38) and Travis Head (23) also come contributed with the bat. Meanwhile, the first Test had ended in a dull draw.
