PAK vs ENG: Pakistan had to face humiliation at the hands of England on the first day of the ongoing first Test in Rawalpindi. The English batsmen thrashed him fiercely on the first day of the game. In the first innings, the British made many records while batting in T20 style, which gave Pakistan a lot of space. Now in response to this, President of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Rameez Raja has come forward. He has vented his anger on the Rawalpindi pitch but his style was slightly different. Describing the pitch as lifeless, he said that the surface was not pleasing.
Rameez Raja vented his anger on the pitch
Obviously, the English batsmen put up a Mount Everest of 506 runs in just 75 overs on the first day of the game. This is the world record for the most runs on the opening day of a Test match. How can the chief of the cricket board of that country be happy if he mercilessly thrashes Pakistani bowlers from sunrise to sunset without any discrimination. Raja criticized the pitch prepared for the first Test match against England, saying that such wickets are not good for Test cricket.
PCB remembers ‘drop in pitch’ after beating England
The PCB chief said that Pakistan should also consider adopting ‘drop in pitches’. ‘Drop in pitch’ is a pitch that is prepared at some other place and set at a new place. Rameez told reporters on Friday, “I am not happy with these pitches. We can get results but pitches like this are not good for Test cricket.
England made rapid runs in the first innings
England, playing their first Test match in Pakistan in the last 17 years, scored 657 runs in their first innings at a run rate of 6.5. Four of his top five batsmen Harry Brook, Jock Crowley, Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope scored centuries. In response, Pakistan scored 181 runs without loss till the end of the second day’s play. Rameez said that to challenge teams like England, Pakistan should also prepare ‘drop in pitch’ on the lines of Australia.
