HOW DO you drop the mic, with­out lit­er­ally drop­ping the mic? Mo­ham­mad Amir knows how. It hasn’t all been sun­shine and roses in the Pak­istan camp on this tour of South Africa. There haven’t been any late night vis­its to strip clubs as hap­pened on a pre­vi­ous tour here, just a heated post day meet­ing af­ter the sec­ond day’s play in Cen­tu­rion and then ad­mon­ish­ment from the cap­tain Sar­fraz Ahmed in Cape Town be­cause he felt his bowlers weren’t bowl­ing fast enough – all quite nor­mal. At the end of the first day’s play, Amir was out­lin­ing Pak­istan’s hap­pi­ness at bowl­ing South Africa out, when he took a ques­tion from a vis­it­ing scribe and turned that ques­tion into the last ques­tion of the press con­fer­ence. “Sar­fraz said at the end of the last Test he was not happy with the pace of the bowlers, is this….” came the in­quiry. “Please, please leave this ques­tion. Are we done?” went Amir, and got up and left. Mic Drop. Press con­fer­ence over.
