Neesham’s witty question to Shadab after being caught abusing him on stump mic in PSL match

The ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season has seen some entertaining cricketing encounters and the match between Islamabad United and Multan Sultans definitely falls into that category. The Men in Red needed 18 runs from the last six balls to win but Faheem Ashraf helped the team to equalize with Lahore Qalandars and move a step closer to sealing a top-two finish. table.

Even though it eventually emerged victorious, it was not an easy victory for the side as they had to recover from the loss of early wickets while chasing a challenging target of 206. However, next to be dismissed were Colin Munro and captain Shadab Khan. Who had to rebuild the innings and bring them back into the game with a brilliant stand.

After the fall of Munro, Shadab took it upon himself to keep scoring runs and while Islamabad were in danger of faltering after losing Azam Khan, Ashraf seemed to have kept a wicket from his innings against Quetta Gladiators In the last match when his innings started from the very beginning. Just when it looked like Ashraf and Shadab would help United cross the winning line, the skipper lost his wicket and screamed in frustration.

In fact the 24-year-old was caught swearing on the stump microphone and New Zealand star James Neesham was quick to pick up on it as he fired a cheeky question. He asked, “Why did you shout at Ben Stokes when he got out,” to which the Islamabad leader said: “@jimmyneesham because I was missing him.”

Notably, Ben Stokes’ name sounds similar to a Hindi-Urdu word, something the England Test captain is already aware of and has poked fun at in the past.
