What does Zulqarnain Haider say?

Zulqarnain Haider literally says:

“leaving pakistan cricket because get bad msg fr 1 man fr lose the match in last game.”

But what does he ACTUALLY say? Can anyone help us? What does that mean? Pakistan won their last match, so this Facebook message is a bit confusing.

Why has the world renounced clarity? We had a conversation with someone at work last week where they used the same word to refer to two entirely different things, seemingly blissfully unaware that this would lead to any confusion.

We will reproduce the quote here, only we will use the phrase ‘false nose’ in place of the word he used to make it slightly more colourful.

“There’s two options. Would it be better to have six false noses and four false noses or nine false noses?”

Zulqarnain Haider has failed to turn up for today’s one-day international against South Africa in Dubai. He’s got his passport, so it sounds like he’s done one.

10 Appeals

  1. The problem with Haider’s message is that the hints at clarity are quite disturbing.

    “leaving pakistan cricket” – so far so plain

    “because get bad msg fr 1 man” – because someone has threatened me / my family

    “fr lose the match in last game.” – for NOT losing the last match, in which Haider hit the winning runs, or if I don’t help Pakistan lose this match.

    I realise that there is a fair chunk of speculation in that analysis, but the Pakistani police have put armed guards around Haider’s family back home.

  2. I am with Bert. That is how I ‘translated’ it too.

  3. I hope Bert is wrong on this one. Very unpleasant.

  4. The latest rumour is that he has gone to England.

  5. What doesn’t Zulqarnain Haider say?

  6. Could England patriate him? We almost certainly need another mediocre keeper-batsman.

  7. bad msg = ” why did you hit the winning runs after you took money to lose it , u cunt ”

    1 man = ” some betting circles”

  8. He’s now retired from international cricket.

    On recent form, I guess this means we can expect him to captain the next Pakistan tour?

  9. Will we see a Zulqarnain Haider retirement post to rival Shane Warne’s?

  10. Ged has sense of humour failure over this story.

    “So what’s new?” I hear the hard-assed regulars cry.
