PAK VS AUS: Azhar Ali’s Rude Response To Journalist Grabs Headlines


PAK VS AUS: The much-anticipated First match Test series between Pakistan and Australia at Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi is on its third day. This will be a historic occasion because Australia are visiting Pakistan for the first time since 1998. Imam-ul-Haq and Azhar Ali put on a 208-run partnership for the second wicket.

In the first Test match against Australia, Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali hit 361 balls for 185 runs. According to a journalist, Ali and Imam-ul-Haq both played quite slowly.

The journalist went on to ask Ali why despite playing almost 160 overs in their first innings Pakistan could only score 476 runs. Ali responded with a suitable retort. Ali responded with a single sentence. He stated that the journalist had said enough and that the solution rests in the journalist’s query.

“Well done, Azhar Ali. These guys don’t deserve to be answered. There’s a way to ask a question, you can’t insult a player and his colleague like that. PCB should revoke accreditations, it’s about time. These journos won’t learn.”  Farid Khan.
