The cricketers of India and Pakistan have challenged each other for a Dubsmash dance-off! Will Shoaib Malik and Yuvraj Singh really hit the dancefloor?
"Shoaib, don’t get carried away with wrong profession. Stick to cricket."
The Dubsmash fever is so contagious that this fun little app has sparked a dance-off between two cricketers!
The rivalry started when Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh left a ‘provoking’ comment for Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik’s Dubsmash video.
After defeating Sri Lanka on the third one-day international in Colombo, Shoaib celebrate by recording a Dubsmash gig with his wife, Sania Mirza.
His teammates – Muhammad Irfan, Ehsan Adil, Babar Azam and Mukhtar Ahmed – also grooved to ‘Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai’ in the video.
Yuvraj, however, was not impressed and gave his two cents on their performance.
The Delhi Daredevils all-rounder tweeted: “such outstanding players! But terrible dancers.”
Now that the subject of dance has been brought up, Shoaib bravely responded: “ajjao maydaan may lol”

Will Shoaib and Yuvraj go head-to-head in an epic dance-off? Or will the sportsmen prefer to settle it once and for all on the cricket pitch instead?
Either way, we will be gleefully entertained by the ultimate Desi combo – Bollywood music and cricket!
