Alluding to the fact that he has been  ‘giving answers to such questions for the past two days’, Afridi said he is not willing to talk on this issue anymore.

According to a report in ‘Pakistan Today’, Afridi abandoned the press conference midway in Lahore after he had a verbal spat with a reporter leading to a partial protest by the media demanding an apology from the flamboyant all-rounder.

“Your record has not been as impressive as previous Pakistan Twenty20 captains, do you think there is a need to change the way you are leading the side?” the reporter asked Afridi.

Afridi smiled and then let loose: “I expected you to ask such a  ghatia  (pathetic and low) question.”

He then stormed out of the press briefing, prompting the reporters to protest against his behaviour.
