Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur was less than impressed when a reporter tried to criticise batsman Haris Sohail after his superb performance against South Africa on Sunday.
Haris was named Man of the Match for his 59-ball 89, which included nine boundaries and three sixes.
Pakistan won the match by 49 runs and subsequently kept their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup semi-finals alive.
However, when the reporter questioned why Haris looked exhausted and didn’t have the stamina to get to his hundred, Arthur told the reporter why he couldn’t focus on the positives instead.

“Who’s that, Haris? Why can’t we just write something positive about Haris? He got  off 59 balls today. Is that right or or did I miss something? Why are you always talking negatively about our players? That today was one of the all time brilliant innings that I’ve seen, let’s just write something positive for a change, please,” Arthur told the reporter as quoted by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.
Pakistan’s next World Cup match will be against New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.
