The Australian cricket team made it to Karachi earlier this week ahead of the start of the 2nd Test at the National Stadium, starting Saturday, March 12.

Aussie wicketkeeper Alex Carey was involved in a hysterically funny incident after the team arrived at their hotel in Karachi. Carey, who was in a conversation with Nathan Lyon, accidentally lost his footing and fell into a swimming pool.

The Australian team members present at the scene could not hold back their laughter as even Carey was seen having a good laugh about it. The incident was recorded by Australian captain Pat Cummins, who shared the funny video on Instagram.

The Aussie cricketer Alex Carey was quick to toss his mobile phone to one of his teammates after falling into the swimming pool.


In the meantime, the first Test in Rawalpindi concluded in a draw last week.

Pakistan after choosing to bat first, put up a score of 476/4 and declared with Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq knocking 185 and 157, respectively.

In response, Australia managed to get to a total of 459 all out as Usman Khawaja (97) and Marnus Labuschagne (90) missed out on their respective hundreds.

For the home team, Nauman Ali scalped six wickets as they secured a lead of 17 runs.

During the second innings, Pakistan were 252/0 as Imam (111 not out) and Abdullah Shafique (134 not out) scored unbeaten centuries. Notably, the Australia cricket team is in Pakistan for the first time in 24 years.

The last time Australia played a Test series in Pakistan, they ended up winning the three-match series 1-0 under the captaincy of Mark Taylor in 1998.
