Just days after Simon Doull faced backlash for his controversial comments on Babar Azam’s amazing performance against Quetta Gladiators in the ongoing Pakistan Super League 2023, the former New Zealand bowler has now found himself in hot water once again.
Recently, the Kiwi commentator made some comments about Samiyaa, the wife of Islamabad United’s pacer Hasan Ali, following the team’s victory over Multan Sultans on Tuesday.
Faheem Ashraf played a crucial role in Islamabad United’s thrilling victory over Multan in the PSL 2023 match.
However, the post-match commentary has stirred up controversy on social media. Simon Doull, who was providing commentary during the match, made a comment about Hasan Ali’s wife, Samiyaa, when the camera focused on her after the winning runs were hit. He said, “She has won it. She has won a few hearts as well I believe. That is superb, absolutely stunning. And the victory.” This comment by Doull has sparked outrage and criticism from fans on social media.
Here, have a look:

After the video went viral, Renowned Pakistani Journalist Omair Alavi thanked God that ”there were no social media in the 1990s, otherwise, we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the superb commentary of Henry Blofeld in Sharjah tournaments. And Anwar Maqsood’s Studio Dhai would not have been able to recreate the Pehna Hai Jo Jhumka song.”
