Watch Video: In the press conference, Pakistani journalist asked Naseem Shah a question citing Dennis Lillee’s comment, then the young fast bowler said that now you are in the process of killing me.
Pakistan vs England: A strange incident happened after the end of the third day’s play in the first Test (Rawalpindi Test) match between Pakistan and England. Pakistan’s young fast bowlers Naseem Shah and Zahid Mahmood were present in the press conference. It was the turn of a senior local journalist to ask questions. He started asking his question. The question could not even be completed when Naseem Shah said, ‘Sir, you are trying to kill me too.’
After this the Media Coordinator asked that journalist to take the mike. On hearing this, the journalist got enraged. He said, ‘Don’t think that I am a new man by looking at my salwar-kameez.’ After this, Naseem Shah intervened and said that no, no, he was allowed to ask questions.
In fact, a senior Pakistani journalist asked a question based on Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee’s comment about the poor pitch of the match played in Faisalabad. He said, ‘Such a wicket was in the Faisalabad Test, then Dennis Lillee, while bowling, said that when I die, I should be buried on this wicket. Do you think this (Rawalpindi Test) was such a wicket.
Even before the senior journalist could say anything further, Naseem Shah laughed and said, ‘Sir, now you are trying to kill me.’ After listening to Naseem Shah, the moderator conducting the press conference expressed his concern about the question and started arguing with the journalist.
On this the journalist said, ‘Don’t think that I am someone new by looking at my cap and my salwar kameez. All these children are in front of me. Let me ask you a question, what is the way? You will show me the ways. I’ve been doing sports journalism since you weren’t born. Will you show me the way?’ After this Naseem Shah intervened and played the role of a peacemaker between the two. Naseem Shah also apologized to the journalist. You can also watch that video below.
