The World Test Championship champions New Zealand are currently playing red-ball cricket with Pakistan’s men’s cricket team. The second Test of the two-match series is now being played in Karachi’s National Stadium after the first match ended in a tie last week.

Fans and previous greats have criticized the players for the team’s lackluster play on the field, and even during press conferences, the atmosphere occasionally becomes tense and unpleasant.

Babar had been subjected to challenging questions from reporters during press conferences on numerous occasions lately, but on Thursday (January 5), when bowling coach Shaun Tait showed up to the press conference, things took a negative turn when he got into a heated argument with the reporters over teams’ on-field performances.

“You are saying the performances have been poor”: Shaun Tait

When a journalist questioned Tait about how he could defend the pacers’ performance for Pakistan in the current season, Tait responded simply by stating that in his perspective, the team had performed poorly.

“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?,” the journalist asked Shaun Tait, to which he replied, “That’s your opinion.”

When another journalist stated that this is the general opinion of Pakistan, Shaun Tait became angry. “It is the opinion of the entire Pakistani nation. They believe Pakistan’s quick bowlers performed poorly. But I’m curious if you’re happy with your results as Pakistan’s bowling coach.” The journalist stated.

“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 you like me to say?” Shaun Tait replied.
In the current home Test season, Pakistan is on the verge of suffering its fourth loss in five games. By the end of the fourth day of play, they had already lost two batters without scoring a run, and they still needed 319 runs to win the second Test against New Zealand.
