Watch! Shaun Tait stopped mid-sentence by a Pakistani cricket media person during press conference


Pakistan and England are currently in the middle of a 7 match T20 series and the score-line is tied at 3-3. The first 4 games were played at Karachi as the final leg moved to Lahore. England came in to the 6th game with a 3-2 deficit and had to chase 170 to win. Phil Salt with 87* made it look like routine work and overhauled the target with over 5 overs in hand.

Shaun Tait stopped mid-sentence –

Pakistani fast bowling coach is former Australian speed sensation Shaun Tait. The former right arm quick was tasked with the job of facing the media questions post the end of the 6th T20I. Tait, was quick to point out one glaring fact in a very funny manner during the post game press conference. Tait had said “they send me when we lose badly”. The Pakistani Cricket Board Media Co-Ordinator was quick to step and stop Tait mid-sentence.

Series decided on Sunday-

Both the teams will finish the T20 leg of the series with a meeting on Sunday 2nd October with the series at 3-3. Both the sides have played well at various times, with England in particular continuing to show the attacking brand of cricket. Moeen Ali who is standing in as the skipper in place of the injured Jos Buttler has done a good job so far. This is the last chance for the two teams before the 2022 T20 World Cup begins to get into groove.

Babar Azam laments the lack of runs from the middle order –

Pakistani batting suffered yet another collapse as none of the middle order batters could put any runs on the board. Only Captain Babar Azam with 97 and some reasonable contributions helped Pakistan to a good score. Speaking about it, Azam said â€œ After losing a couple of early wickets, we thought 170 was a good score. Maybe we were 10 runs or so short, but the way Salt batted in the first 4-5 overs, they took the game away from us. The way they used the powerplay was the turnaround today. I think the middle-order needs to step up, they need to take responsibility. As openers, we need to build partnerships to not put the pressure on them.”
