Former New Zealand bowler turned cricket analyst and broadcaster Simon Doull has recently generated a lot of buzz on social media. After his recent criticism of Pakistan and Peshawar Zalmi captain Babar Azam's selfish play, Doull, who is now in Pakistan for commentary duties, made headlines yet again, but this time for a different reason.
Commentator Doull was on television after Islamabad's exciting triumph over the Sultans, which included a breathless chase of 206 runs in just 19.5 overs. Doull's voice could be heard making a remark when the camera shifted to Samiyaa Arzoo, the wife of Hassan Ali.
In the clip, Doull is seen commenting on Arzoo's beautiful appearance, which has generated a lot of buzz online. "She has won it. She has won a few hearts as well, I believe. That is superb, absolutely stunning. And the victory."
Doull's remarks have drawn criticism for being unpleasant, but some have backed him, arguing that he was only expressing his admiration for Arzoo's beauty.
Earlier, Doull had questioned Babar's decision to slow down the pace of scoring runs just before he was to reach the 100-run mark.
"Rather than putting the team first... the last little while, that's all that been happening. Rather than looking for boundaries, still so much firepower to come. Hundreds are brilliant, stats are great, but it has to be team first," Doull said during the match.
