Continuing with their hate against rival cricket teams, a group of match analysts on Pakistan’s ARY NEWS channel insulted Afganistan’s Wicketkeeper cum batsman Muhammad Shahzad by calling him a “Puncture Wala.”
“wicketkeeper ko to dekho, shakal say lagta hai jaisey match kay bad puncture nikalta ho.” Commented one analyst when Pakistan’s Asif was batting in the 19th over in the world cup cricket match against Afghanistan.
Pakistan’s former captain and batsman Muhammad Younus was also present in the panel.
The live show, presents the match analysis to its viewers during the world cup matches and hosts several former Pakistani cricketers in the show.
Pakistan cricket team is seen in a great form and they took everyone by suprise by registering a comprehensive win against India. Indian cricket team was completely outplayed by the youngsters playing in the Pakistan cricket team.
The panelist in question can be seen getting carried away soon after the match between Pakistan and Afghanistan took a surprising turn after the asking run rate shot up and Pakistan team started loosing wickets.
Asif, who hit four sixes in the 19th over, overturned the match statistics and helped Pakistan in chasing the score in the 19th over only.
Cricket experts in Pakistan are in news for very bad reason since the onset of the Twenty Twenty world cup 2021.
Earlier, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar was embroiled in a controversy when he walked out of a TV programme and resigned from his job as cricket analyst after being told to leave the set by the host of the show at state-owned PTV.
Akhtar, 46, said he had been treated badly and insulted on air by the host in the post match show following Pakistan’s five wicket win over New Zealand in ongoing T20 the World Cup on Tuesday.
