Pakistan coach Misbah-ul-Haq gives a witty reply to a reporter when asked about “Tuk Tuk” batting

Pakistan batsmen have faced a lot of criticism over their defensive approach and inability to power-hit across all formats. They have been accused of batting with a slow strike rate responsible for the team’s lot of defeats.


Ahead of the home series against Sri Lanka, newly appointed Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq was asked about the “Tuk Tuk” batting – the strike rate problem of Pakistan’s batsmen to which he had a witty reply.

One of the reporters present during the press conference on Wednesday asked Misbah, “There has been more of the tuk-tuk and less of hard-hitting. There have been centuries scored of 235 balls. Even when you batted, there was a notion that you do more of the tuk-tuk and less hard-hitting. As the new head coach and batting coach, do you have a plan to change this approach or will the team continue doing tuk-tuk?”


To this, the former Pakistan skipper replied: “In my opinion, there is a lot of stress on a tuk-tuk in your question.”

“Looks like you didn’t get a car today. Or maybe someone has asked you to try and irritate the coach,” he added.

The Islanders are slated to play three ODIs in Karachi on September 27, 29 and October 3, and as many T20Is in Lahore on October 5, 7 and 9 during the tour, before returning in December for the Test series that will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship.
