Shaun Tait involves in verbal fight with Pakistan journalists, video goes viral

Pakistan’s bowling coach, Shaun Tait got involved in a heated argument with a Pakistan journalist following the fourth day’s play of the second Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand.

Tait addressed the media following the day 4 and the journalists asked him questions about Pakistan’s fast bowlers’ dismal performances in Test cricket, lately. However, Shaun Tait, who doesn’t have a similar opinion, gave a rude response to their questions.

One of the journalists in the press conference asked him,

“Poor performances in five Test matches by Pakistani fast bowlers and inconsistent performances by the spinners. How can you justify the overall performance in this home season,”

In reply, Shaun Tait said,

“That’s your opinion.”

Another journalist asked him about his plans to manage the fast bowlers, especially in the absence of Shaheen Afridi. In reply, the former Australian fast bowler said,

“I don’t think playing all three formats consistently can happen. That’s too much cricket. We are aware of that so it is going to be an important year for Pakistan with a couple of big tournaments towards the end of it. Management of the fast bowlers will be critical.”

The Pakistan journalist then said that the ‘entire nation’ felt that the fast bowler haven’t performed well and asked about his opinion on the same.

“It is the opinion of the entire nation of Pakistan. They think Pakistan fast bowlers did not bowl well. But I am asking you, are satisfied with your performances as Pakistan bowling coach,” asked the journalist.

To that, Tait highlighted that the journalist himself had already answered the question and that is his opinion.

“You are answering the question before you ask it. That is your opinion. You are saying the performances have been poor. Ok, that is your opinion, what would like me to say?” Tait replied.

“The question is are you satisifed with your performance as Pakistan bowling coach,” the former Australia speedster was then asked. “Yes I am satisfied,” he replied.

The fifth day of the second Test between Pakistan and New Zealand is currently underway. Pakistan have lost 5 wickets for 125 runs but still need 194 runs to win the Test match.
