A funny thing happened when the Australian team was waiting at their hotel in Karachi. Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey accidentally fell in a swimming pool at the hotel.
Carey was just casually walking by the pool not realising that he was literally walking into it. A video of the incident surfaced and went viral on social media.
Australia’s captain Pat Cummins also laughed it off during a press conference. He said that it was “one of the funniest things” he had ever seen.

“We just got a new footage out this morning of the CCTV camera from a different angle which is even funnier. So yeah, the boys had a good laugh. ‘Kez’ (Alex Carey) had a very funny laugh himself,” the Australian captain said during a press conference.
