The pitch being used in the Test series against New Zealand in Karachi is under question. The first Test between Pakistan and New Zealand was a draw and in the second match also the pitch looks very flat. Even in the four days of the game, the bowlers did not see any help on the pitch, after which this 22-yard strip is being compared to the road. Now former Pakistan fast bowler aqib javed Has surrounded PCB and Pakistani team management on this issue.
Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed said that Pakistani cricket players, board and selectors are afraid of defeat. They tremble because of this fear. Aaqib Javed told the Pakistani media, ‘The kind of pitch made in Karachi, the bowlers should refuse to play there. These pitches have been made to draw the match.
‘Pakistan players, selectors are scared of defeat’
Targeting Pakistani cricketers, Aaqib Javed said, ‘Our players play with the fear of defeat. From the chairman to the captain, the selectors and the management tremble with the fear of being dropped. Aqib Javed has said this in view of the attitude of Pakistani cricket management and team in recent times.
New Zealand players also raised questions
Not only Pakistanis, New Zealand players are also questioning the attitude of Pakistani cricket team. During the live commentary, Simon Doull asked on whose instructions such pitches are made. Does Babar Azam make such pitches to improve his batting figures or do instructions come from above.
By the way, despite making such a flat pitch, Pakistan has lost the last two home series. He had to face a 0-1 defeat against Australia. After this England defeated him 3-0. Now his first Test against New Zealand was a draw and seeing the kind of pitch made in the second Test, it seems that Pakistani players were afraid of losing this series as well. His veteran players are also saying the same thing.
