Watch: Misbah-ul-Haq Shuts Down Reporter On ‘Tuk-Tuk Batting’ Question
Former Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq attended his first press-conference as Pakistan’s head coach on Wednesday. And the way the press-conference panned out, one can say that Misbah-ul-Haq is going to entertain the fans and the reporters in the coming days. The press-conferences are also going to be a no-nonsense affair as far as Misbah-ul-Haq is concerned.
The legendary captain seemingly lost his cool on Wednesday when one reporter criticised the batsmen’s slow batting, calling it ‘tuk-tuk’. Not only that, the reporter also reminded Misbah that he also had the same reputation and that the fans thought he was too defensive. He then asked the coach whether he would allow the players to do more ‘tuk-tuk’ in international cricket.

Misbah-ul-Haq was clearly not amused by the question and made himself clear by giving a sarcastic answer.
“It seems that there is a lot of emphasis on tuk-tuk in your question, looks like you didnt get a car, or maybe someone’s told you to ask this question to try to make me angry,” said the newly-appointed Pakistan coach.

Misbah-ul-Haq and Pakistan, meanwhile, are gearing up for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. Pakistan will host the islanders for three ODIs and three T20Is, starting on September 27. The series will be Pakistan’s first outing since their group-stage exit from the World Cup. Pakistan will also be playing their first ODI in their backyard since the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009.
Since then Pakistan have hosted the likes of Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, West Indies as well as a World XI side but only for T20Is.
