Pakistan's white-ball format vice-captain Shadab Khan teased Iftikhar Ahmed after he scored his maiden T20 century in Bangladesh Premier League (IPL). 

After the firepower performance, while representing Fortune Barishal against Rangpur Riders, Iftikhar changed his profile picture on social media which got massive response.

While replying on this profile picture, witty Shadab sought tickets to watch 'Ifti Mania'. 

"Ifti bhai aap ka bhai shadab bol raha ho. Aap ki century kmal thi. Yeh #iftimania ke ticket kahan se milne he? Release kab h? [Ifti Bhai, your brother speaking. Your century was amazing. Where will I get tickets for #iftimania? When is the release date?]" Shadab wrote.

This wasn't the first time when two cricketers exchanged funny moments. Earlier in September 2022 when Iftikhar led Pakistan to T20I victory against England at home, Shadab wittily raised an objection to be called 'Bhai'. 

A snippet from Shadab-Iftikhar's video interview went viral on social media. "Mai Bhai Houn?" 23-years-old Shadab asked 32-years-old Iftikhar. "There is some respect also," Iftikhar replied.

In that match, Iftikhar bowled the most economical bowling spell. He bagged 1-16 in four overs to help Pakistan defend 146 runs.

Shadab, on other hand, picked up one wicket while conceding 25 runs in his four overs.
