The second Test between Pakistan and Australia played in Karachi also ended in a draw. Earlier, the first match played in Rawalpindi was also a draw.
There were many such turning points in the Karachi Test where it was thought that one team between Australia and Pakistan would win the match, but it did not happen.
After two successive Test draws between Australia and Pakistan, several former cricketers have been criticizing the pitch and demanding a spin-friendly pitch from the Pakistan Cricket Board for the third Test to be played in Lahore.
Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, popularly known as Rawalpindi Express, has also criticized the pitches for the first two Tests.
Shoaib has also put PCB chairman Ramiz Raja’s class in his video on the YouTube channel. He said- Ramiz Raja says that he is a cricketer before being the PCB chief.
If so, why doesn’t he make a good pitch?
What is the meaning of making such a lifeless pitch in cricket? I agree that you tried the Australian team a lot, but they did not have to tire them, they had to defeat them.
The former Pakistani fast bowler also praised Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Australia had given a target of 506 runs to Pakistan.
Chasing the target, the Pakistan team started playing ahead of 192 runs for two wickets on Wednesday. Abdullah Shafiq was dismissed after scoring 96 runs. At the same time, captain Babar Azam missed out on a double century by just four runs.
Babar and Rizwan played a match-saving inning together. Babar was dismissed after scoring 196 runs. At the same time, Rizwan remained unbeaten on 104.
Chasing the target, Pakistan batted about 171 overs. Out of this, Shafiq, Babar and Rizwan together batted about 151 overs and saved the match.
