WATCH: Shaun Tait gets agitated over journalists remark

Pakistan bowling coach Shaun Tait on Friday was agitated at the journalists for calling out the national team pacers. The former Australian fast bowler was asked by a reporter to justify his role as a bowling coach in the ongoing home season.

In absence of their premier fast bowler Shaheen Afridi, the home team have struggled with their bowling in particular on flat track, in five home Tests played in over a month. It included three matches against England and two against New Zealand.

“Poor performances in five Test matches by Pakistani fast bowlers and inconsistent performances by the spinners. How can you justify the overall performance in this home season?,” the reporter asked Tait, to which he replied, “That’s your opinion.”

At the same time, the former Australian pacer also did not like a reporter’s question when asked about what their plans have been for the home red-ball series in the absence of pace spearhead Shaheen who is nursing a knee injury. Tait mentioned that the management of the fast bowlers will be critical this year since Pakistan have two major tournaments this year.

“I don’t think playing all three formats consistently can happen. That’s too much cricket. We are aware of that so it is going to be an important year for Pakistan with a couple of big tournaments towards the end of it. Management of the fast bowlers will be critical.”

Tait, moreover, lost his composure when one of the reporters asked him whether he was personally satisfied with his performances as Pakistan bowling coach.

“It is the opinion of the entire nation of Pakistan. They think Pakistan’s fast bowlers did not bowl well. But I am asking you, are you satisfied with your performances as Pakistan bowling coach?” asked the journalist.

“You are answering the question before you ask it. That is your opinion. You are saying the performances have been poor. Ok, that is your opinion, what would like me to say?” Tait replied.
