Misbah sides with Afridi, says all rows fueled by media


Pakistani Test skipper Misbahul Haq said on Wednesday that all the rows are fueled by the media.

Misbah was referring to the recent backlash by Shahid Afridi against a reporter who asked him about his captaincy standard.

“Media reporters will get the answers in the same style they ask the questions,” Misbah said.

The cricketer has seconded Afridi’s stance against media reporter who wanted to ask about his position as the captain.

Meanwhile, team manager Intikhab Alam also stood with the cricketers and said that it was his humble request not to prolong the issue.

Pakistan T20I captain Shahid Afridi had a verbal clash with the reporter while talking to the media just before a practice match at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

After the media talk, Afridi went straight to the practice match, whereas reporters went to Pakistan team manager Intikhab Alam, and protested over Afridi’s behaviour, and asked for an apology from the Pakistan T20I captain.



  1. Our uneducated section of Media must be put in its place. They are NOT JOURNALISTS but reporters who make a fool of themselves daily while reporting events from different parts of the country like some illiterate local. These ‘reporters’ are either related to someone in the channel or are very cheap to hire. Most will not be able to spell journalism!

  2. Why couldn’t the PCB and other players show solidarity with Afridi like Misbah? Was it lack of courage? Intikhab Alam is a household servant of Shehryar. It matters a fig whatever he says. How could rest of the players speak with a convict in the Team!!!
