Ramiz Raja snatches Indian journalist phone after Pakistan’s defeat in Asia Cup final
Pakistan succumbed to yet another defeat by the Lankan Lions after they lost the DP Asia Cup 2022 final by 23 runs to Sri Lanka. Babar Azam and co. had the control at one point as Sri Lanka were 58/5 at one point, but despite winning the toss, the Shaheens could not crunch the opposition.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa hammered an unbeaten 71 to help Sri Lanka post 170/6. After that Sri Lankan bowlers bowled out Pakistan for 147 to claim their sixth Asia Cup title.
However, after the final got over, an Indian journalist had asked PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja to speak a few words for the fans after the loss. With this, the former cricketer was left fuming and he asked the journalist whether he was from India and also said that the Indian fans would be happy at the outcome of the match.
The journalist replied by saying that he is not, and he was asking a genuine question. Ramiz Raja just walked off and soon after, he also tried to snatch away the journalist’s phone.
“That’s not right Mr Chairman Taking my phone was not right,” the journalist wrote on his Twitter.
Although, there has not been any reciprocating statements from Ramiz Raja or the Pakistan Cricket Board on the matter as of now.
