PCB chairman Rameez Raja seems to be frighten from ‘mighty’ Australian cricket team and continuously making blood dead pitches to force draw in the test series that taking place after 24 years between the two countries.
What a shame for both Raja and Cricket Team captain Babar Azam for their meek surrender.
Such a timid duo hardly be seen in today’s cricket. Raja who calls Imran Khan his leader but his actions shows that bravery does touch him ever.
Raja should go home after this humiliation he is bringing to Pakistan by showing meek and timid artitude.
Former captain Intikhab Alam bitterly criticised the pitch used in the first Test between Pakistan and Australia at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi.
“PCB has ” to capitalise on home conditions by preparing a placid playing surface as the Australians visit the country after 24 years.
“Everywhere in the world, the cricket boards take advantage of home conditions but we failed even to take this one, because after scoring a high total Pakistan also conceded a big total,” said Intikhab and added in the past, on many occasions, he has urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take the challenging task of ensuring similar type of sporting pitches in all the countries to end home advantage for the hosts.
“The ICC’s curators should work with the local curators to ensure sporting pitches,” he said.
Every cricket lover in Pakistan is cursing the PCB and Raja for being frightened from Australian cricket team. PAK DESTINY
