VIDEO: Miffed with 'ghatia' question, Shahid Afridi leaves conference midway

New Delhi: Veteran Pakistani all-rounder on Wednesday landed into yet another controversy when he walked out of a press conference midway in Lahore after having a verbal spat with a reporter.

The incident took place after a reporter of a television channel asked Pakistan's T20 skipper what he planned to do as a captain to win the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 since his record as a leader was very poor.

"Your record has not been as impressive as previous Pakistan Twenty20 captains, do you think there is a need to change the way you are leading the side?" the reporter questioned.

Afridi smiled and then replied, "I expected you to ask such a 'ghatia' (pathetic and low) question."

Here is the video of the conference shared on Twitter:

He then left the press briefing, post which the mediapersons raised slogans against him outside the dressing room at the Gaddafi stadium.
