The envoy had also made some interesting revelations and that too, in Urdu. “Well, I should say first of all, Pakistan boht khoobsurat hai (Pakistan is very beautiful),” he said, much to Mir’s delight. “Meri Urdu kharab hai. Thodi jaanta hun.” (My Urdu is bad, I know a little of it).”

Turner, in a response to Mir’s question, as to when Pakistan can host English cricketers on its home soil, he said,”Ahista ahista (slowly, slowly). We will take small steps [towards it],” he added.

Adding to the delight of Lahoris, Turner in the show agreed to the old saying “Lahore Lahore Hai (Lahore is Lahore)” and said when he visited the Old City all he had done for three days was eating.

On speaking Urdu in the sweetest way, anchor Hamid Mir told the envoy that the next time he comes to the show, he would like to conduct Turner’s entire interview in Urdu to which he replied: “In Sha’Allah” (if God wills).
