Not only fans but also News channels love to talk about the India vs Pakistan cricket matches as these are a matter of pride for people of both the countries. The stress among the players of arch-rival nations can also be seen when they are on the field against each other but off-the-field.
India and Pakistan have faced each other two times in the Asia Cup 2018 so far and both the times, team India won and proved far better than the cricketers of the neighbouring country. The second match was played on Sunday and before that match, former Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar was invited for discussion at a panel of a program telecasted on ABP news.
When he came live, the news anchor told him that it seems as if the Indian team has taken Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan (Clean India Campaign) too seriously and they are hell-bent on washing the Pakistan team. She further asked Shoaib as to what Pak players would do to save themselves from getting washed in the second match.
Such language didn’t go well with the former Pakistani bowler and he slammed the journalist for using this type of language.

One such incident happened with Gautam Gambhir when he was asked unnecessary questions by Pakistani journalists after the first match and he gave them a perfect reply. It seems journalists of both the sides need better training before getting a chance to host programs. What do you say?
