In some humiliating news for the Pakistan Cricket Board, two of its fast bowlers Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah got involved in a heated argument during the training session ahead of the first Test against Australia.

However, team officials on Thursday dismissed any internal problems.

The incident happened over a tackle during a warm-up football game at the Gabba in Brisbane on Wednesday, with Shah, who has been nursing a back injury, pushing Riaz in the chest.

Both players had to be separated by coach Mickey Arthur before being sent off the field and kept away from team training, a media report said.

"Both (players) had an exchange of words but it wasn't serious," team spokesman Amjad Hussain Bhatti told ESPNcricinfo.

"Both were immediately separated... but now they are both fine and have apologised to each other too." 

A Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman said action against the duo was being considered but was unlikely to go further.

Pakistan will begin the first of three Tests against Australia later today, where they have yet to win a series in 11 tours.
