Colombo: Jaffna Kings stars Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz sat down for a frank conversation on the sidelines of the Lanka Premier League and the two veteran Pakistani cricketers revealed hilarious nuggets about each other. Riaz and Malik participated in the "spray challenge" as they answered a range of questions about each other.

Malik, during the fun chat, went on to reveal why his wife Indian tennis star Sania Mirza does not like to cook for him. The two players were asked about who is fussier about food, and Malik said: "Ask this question to my wife. Then you get a detailed answer. That's why she does not know how to cook and she orders from outside. Because I am fussy."

When asked about who was lazier among the two players, Malik was quick to spray water on Riaz. "Because Riaz is a fast bowler, and he needs a lot of energy. Maybe that's why he is lazier," he was quoted as saying by the organisers in a release on Thursday.

Malik also credited the Pakistan fast bowler to having a messier kitbag among the two. "He is an all-rounder. He carries more bats than a batsman carries," Malik said, laughing.

Riaz went on to say that Malik has a better sense of humour among the two, but also cheekily added: "At times, he says something, and he laughs and nobody responds."

When asked who is a bigger foodie, it was revealed by the two that Malik eats six times a day. "Even at 3 am, there will be a club sandwich in his room," Riaz revealed.

"I may eat six times a day, but I take small meals," Malik responded.

Riaz also described Malik as the bigger "party animal" among the two and revealed why their plans to party in Karachi this year went awary.

"He committed to me that he and I will be in Karachi, and we will have a lot of fun. But thank god, his name was in the T20 World Cup squad. He made a lot of plans with me. But nothing paid off," Wahab said, laughing.
