The Pakistan team is currently undergoing a tough time in the World Cup, where their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals are getting dimmer by the day. Their recent loss against India has sparked off a caustic wave of criticism where some sections of the media are going overboard with their negative comments.
A renowned journalist mocked the Pakistan team management’s decision to give players a couple of days off to relieve themselves from the mental burden after the heavy defeat. However, the journalist’s jeering remark offended Test specialist Azhar Ali, who called him out on the social media platform.
The right-handed batsman, in turn, claimed that players are not machines who need to train 24 hours a day and have cricket always on their mind. Azhar advised media personnel to be more mindful of the cricketers and their spirits during this uneasy period.
