Afridi storms out of press conference on question over poor T20 performance


Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi on Wednesday left press conference on a question related to green shirts’ poor performance against New Zealand.

As a reporter raised question on team’s performance, Shahid Afridi remarked he is giving answers to such questions from past two days.

The skipper said he is not willing to talk on this issue anymore.

Shahid Afridi further said that this platform is not appropriate for this type of question.

Earlier, Afridi abandoned a press conference midway in Lahore after he had a verbal spat with a reporter leading to a partial protest by the media demanding an apology from the flamboyant all-rounder.

“Your record has not been as impressive as previous Pakistan Twenty20 captains, do you think there is a need to change the way you are leading the side?” the reporter asked Afridi.

Afridi smiled and then let loose: “I expected you to ask such a  ghatia  (pathetic and low) question.”

He then left the press briefing, prompting the reporters to protest against his behaviour.
