Pakistan tasted a second straight humbling at the hands of Sri Lanka and this time it was in the final of Asia Cup 2022. Babar Azam’s team failed to drive home the advantage in the summit clash in Dubai despite winning the toss and having the Lankans tottering at 67/5 after the first 10 overs. Bhanuka Rajapaksa slammed an unbeaten 71 to guide the Lankans to 170/6. After that the Sri Lankan bowlers bowled out Pakistan for 147 to script a great win.
This was Sri Lanka’s sixth Asia Cup title. Pakistan’s capitulation against Lankans in both the final and the Super 4 clash left Pakistani fans distressed and sad.
After the final got over, an Indian journalist asked Ramiz Raja to give a message to the fans after the loss.

This left the PCB chief fuming as he asked the journalist whether he was from India and also hinted that the Indian fans would be happy at the outcome of the final.
The journalist replied by saying that he was not and that he was asking a genuine question. After this a clearly rattled Ramiz walked off and also tried to remove the journalist’s phone.
The journalist later took to Twitter and asked why Ramiz tried to snatch his phone, “that’s not right Mr Chairman Taking my phone was not right,” the journalist wrote
क्या मेरा सवाल ग़लत था – क्या पाकिस्तान के फ़ैन नाखुश नहीं है – ये बहुत ग़लत था एक बोर्ड के चेयरमैन के रूप में – आपको मेरा फ़ोन नहीं छीनना चाहिये था – that’s not right Mr Chairman Taking my phone was not right @TheRealPCB @iramizraja #PAKvSL #SLvsPAK pic.twitter.com/tzio5cJvbG
