MisbahHaq response over reporter question of 'tuk tuk' problem with Pakistan team left him red faced

ISLAMABAD - Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq response over reporter question of 'tuk tuk' problem with Pakistan team left him red faced.

Misbah ul Haq, the new Pakistan head coach, was asked about the strike rate problem of Pakistani batsmen at a press conference on Wednesday. Misbah ‘Tuk tuk’ ul Haq came up with a witty reply, the vitriol of which the reporter is bound to remember for the rest of his life.

The question, ill-advised as it would be apparent moments later, was: “There has been more of tuk tuk and less of hard hitting. There have been centuries scored of 235 balls. Even when you batted, there was a notion that you do more of tuk tuk and less hard hitting. As the new head coach and batting coach, do you have a plan to change this approach or will the team continue doing tuk tuk?”

Misbah took his time before coming up with a response. Advertising

He then said: “In my opinion, there is a lot of stress on tuk tuk in your question.”
