Pakistan tasted a second straight humiliation at the hands of Sri Lanka and this time it was in the 2022 Asian Cup final. Babar Azam’s side failed to take the lead in the summit clash in Dubai despite winning the draw and the Lankans staggering at 67/5 after the first 10 overs. Bhanuka Rajapaksa slammed an unbeaten 71 to guide the Lankans to 170/6. After that, Sri Lankan bowlers beat Pakistan for 147 to script a big win.

It was Sri Lanka’s sixth Asian Cup title. Pakistan’s surrender to the Lankans in the final and Super 4 left Pakistani fans distressed and sad.

After the final was over, an Indian reporter asked Ramiz Raja to deliver a message to the fans after the defeat.

This left the PCB chief furious when he asked the reporter if he was from India and also hinted that Indian fans would be happy with the outcome of the final.


The journalist replied that he was not and that he was asking a real question. After that, a clearly shaken Ramiz left and also tried to pull the reporter’s phone out.

The reporter then took to Twitter and asked why Ramiz tried to snatch his phone away from him, “It’s not right Mr. President, taking my phone was not right,” the reporter wrote.

There has been no response from Ramiz Raja or the Pakistan Cricket Board on this yet.
