The reaction from PTV sports anchor Dr. Nauman Niaz comes after the incident invited outrage on Twitter, with many calling out the state-run Tv channel administration to sack the anchor.

During the live show on Tuesday night, Dr. Nauman Niaz and former fast pacer Shoaib Akhtar had engaged in controversy while talking about  Haris Rauf after Pakistan and New Zealand T20 World Cup match.

During the panel discussion, Akhtar was sharing his opinion on Haris Rauf and mistakenly took Shaheen Shah Afridi’s name. Dr. Nauman corrected him but later ended in a heated exchange.

And the situation was quite awkward when the host of the show Nauman during the live show asked the former pacer to leave.

Shoaib resigned from the show and later on social media, he explained the reason why he did that on social media.

“I wonder why one has to be reminded@shoaib100mph is a star. He has been the best of the best, he shall always be. He has brought laurels to the country is undeniable. One side of the story always attracts nonetheless having been friends for ages I’ll always wish him the best,” Nouman Niaz tweet.
