Pakistani Test skipper Misbahul Haq said on Wednesday that media fueled the issue by asking wrong question from Shahid Afridi.
Misbah was referring to the recent backlash by Shahid Afridi against a reporter who asked him about his captaincy standard.
“Media reporters will get the answers in the same style they ask the questions,” Misbah said.
The cricketer has seconded Afridi’s stance against media reporter who wanted to ask about his position as the captain.
Meanwhile, team manager Intikhab Alam also stood with the cricketers and said that it was his humble request not to prolong the issue.
Pakistan T20I captain Shahid Afridi had a verbal clash with the reporter while talking to the media just before a practice match at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
