After India’s team was defeated, Ramiz Raja grabbed the phone from the Indian journalist.
In the championship match of the Asia Cup, which took place just a few hours ago, Sri Lanka emerged victorious over Pakistan, so claiming the title of Asia Cup winner for the sixth time in their history.
After the game, the journalists questioned the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board about the loss suffered by the nation. In response, Ramiz Raja, who was irritated with the Indian journalist who asked the question, did not answer the question.
The Indian journalist inquires as to whether or not Pakistani supporters are extremely depressed, but Ramiz cuts him off and asks, “Did you come from India? are you happy?”
After the aforementioned video was shown in the media, the Indian journalist also made a statement in this respect, saying that Ramiz Raja’s behaviour was not appropriate for him. She said this after the media had shown the footage.
He asks, “Why did I ask the incorrect question? Were Pakistani fans not upset after the loss? This behaviour was not proper for the head of a board, and it is really unfortunate that he grabbed my phone as well.
The actions of Ramiz Raja toward the Indian journalist were criticised by a significant number of cricket fans who shared their thoughts and ideas on the incident.
On the other side, an official fan page of the Indian board called Bharat Army has also complained that members of the group were not permitted to watch the game, and in this regard, they have asked the Asian Cricket Council for an explanation. In this regard, they have requested an explanation.
Ramiz Raja, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), was not at his best behaviour on Sunday, September 11, after his team’s loss in the Asia Cup 2022 final. Ramiz lost his temper at an Indian reporter outside the Dubai stadium when he was asked about the disappointment of the public in Pakistan after the Men in Green lost to Sri Lanka by 23 runs in the summit match.
The Indian reporter asked Ramiz if he had a message for the Pakistani public at home, who wouldn’t be happy after the loss, and Ramiz just snapped saying, “I don’t care what the Pakistani public thinks; I’m not going to talk to them.” “You must be from India, and I’m sure you’re celebrating the fact that Pakistan has been defeated.
The reporter countered by stating that he was equally dissatisfied, and the two proceeded to dispute for a few more seconds before Ramiz grabbed his phone and went away to answer a question from another member of the media. The former Pakistan cricketer has received a great deal of criticism for the manner in which he conducted himself.
In the championship match, Pakistan won the coin toss and elected to bowl first, as was widely anticipated. Before Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Wanindu Hasaranga’s purpose stole the game away from the two-time defending champions, Pakistan had a foothold on the Sri Lankan batting line-up in the first half, reducing them to 58/5.
Hasaranga scored a quick knock of 36 runs off 21 balls, but it was Rajapaksa who stayed to the finish of the game and made sure that Sri Lanka reached a respectable total of 170. Rajapaksa relied on his good fortune to remain unbeaten on 71 out of 45 after surviving a number of missed opportunities.
From the very beginning, it appeared as though Pakistan would never be in the running. The Babar Azam-led team suffered a setback when they lost two wickets in the same over. Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed made the decision to abandon the chase as none of them took the initiative to step up the competition. The needed run rate had already reached 12 when both players were dismissed, and it was only a matter of time before Sri Lanka won the match and their sixth Asia Cup title.
