Misbah ul Haq, the new Pakistan head coach, was asked about the strike rate problem of Pakistani batsmen at a press conference on Wednesday and his response had the room of journalists erupt in laughter.
The reporter asked: “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 to respond and then said,”In my opinion, there is a lot of stress on tuk tuk in your question.”

While the other journalists at the conference burst into laughter, Misbah continued: “Looks like you didn’t get a car today.” “Or maybe someone has asked you to try and irritate the coach.”
Pakistan are preparing to host Sri Lanka in a series of ODIs and T20Is starting from Friday.
