Upon landing in Sydney for the upcoming Test series against the Aussies, the National Cricket Team encountered an uncomfortable situation when their luggage faced mishandling.
The pictures reveal that the national players loaded their heavy luggage into the truck themselves. Notably, players like Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Wasim Jr took matters into their own hands, personally loading heavy bags onto a truck. Dissatisfaction was expressed with the alleged insufficient arrangements by Team Manager Naveed Akram Cheema, triggering concerns from Cricket Australia and the PCB Liaison Officer. Despite denials from the National Team spokesperson, the incident highlighted a less-than-ideal start to the team's Australian tour.
The squad will completely rest on Saturday after a flight of more than 24 hours. They will start training on December 3. Australia has not announced the squad for the Test matches. Many players are participating in Sheffield Shield matches to prepare for the Pakistan challenge.

Shan Masood (captain), Aamir Jamal, Abdullah Shafique, Abrar Ahmed, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Khurram Shahzad, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Noman Ali, Saim Ayub, Salman Ali Agha, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk), Saud Shakeel and Shaheen Shah Afridi.
