Following Pakistan’s win over New Zealand, a spat happened between Shoaib Akhtar and anchor Dr Nauman Niaz on PTV Sports and Shoaib Akhtar leaves PTV because of that.
Shoaib Akhtar leaves PTV and has realeased a video message on twitter after the incident.
He said in his video message that he felt embarrassed during this incident.
Shoaib Akhtar demanded an apology from Dr. Nauman Ijaz, which was not given.
Commenting on the matter himself, Dr Nauman Niaz said, “One side of the story always attracts, nonetheless having been friends for ages I’ll always wish him the best.”
Why Dr. Nauman Niaz said what he said (Writer’s Opinion):
Shoaib Akhtar was analysing the match and the Pakistan cricket team in such a way that it can be feel like he was know-it-all. And it felt like he was showing off, and purposedly made Dr. Nauman Ijaz feel bad. Although maybe Shoaib Akhtar did not mean it like that, but I can say for certain that Dr. Nauman Ijaz felt like this.
That is Dr Nauman Ijaz mentioned in his tweet that you are listening to only one side of the story.
Pakistan TeleVision forms committee
PTV administration took notice of the incident and formed a committee to probe the incident, according to a statement posted on its sports channel’s official Twitter account.
The statement said the first session of the committee will be held on Wednesday (today) and probe the situation that occurred between Niaz and Akhtar.
