Pakistan Pacer Clarifies Shaun Tait’s Viral Tweet Amid Widespread Rumors | Cricket News –

A tweet from Pakistani pacemaker Shahnawaz Dahani sent the cricketing world into a state of shock. Dahani’s tweet after the third ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand had many wondering if all is well with Pakistan bowling coach Shaun Tait. One after another, fans began to express their concern for Tait, asking if the Australian was in good health. The tweet led to the spread of some strange rumors and eventually Dahani had to come forward and issue a clarification.

“A friend who brought smiles, left last night with tears,” Dahani had tweeted.

He later clarified: “Ary bhai Pakistan Cricket Team k baat kar rha hon. (I’m talking about the Pakistan cricket team).”

It should also be noted that Tait’s contract with the Pakistan cricket team as their head coach will not end in February. Although no concrete information has come in yet, former Pakistani pacemaker Umar Gul has been touted as the man to replace Tait after he ends his contract.

“It is an honor to work for the team. After retiring from international cricket, I always wanted to work for my team as a coach, but PCB never approached me,” Gul told Express News.

At a press conference, Tait was also asked by a reporter about his performances as the bowling coach of the Pakistan team. The reporter had asked Tait if he was happy with the way he had contributed. The Australian’s answer was yes.

As for the Pakistan team, Babar Azam’s men suffered a 1-2 ODI series loss to New Zealand at home. The result has put a big question mark over Babar Azam’s position as team captain as well.
