Former Pakistani cricketer, Danish Kaneria has lambasted the PCB chairman for the dead rubber that allowed both teams to score freely without giving any aid to the bowler. The former leg-spinner also criticized Ramiz Raja for not giving any consideration to Nauman Ali who took six wickets in the first innings of Australia.
Ramiz Raja is afraid of Sindh’s talent: Danish Kaneria
“I have no doubt that Ramiz Raja is afraid of Sindh’s talented players. He remembers all the names but does not take the name of a bowler who takes six wickets on a dead rubber. Sajid Khan was made to bowl so many overs. One should ask Babar Azam that who instructed the curator to prepare such a dead flat track. The PCB chairman is giving lame excuses. A world-class team has come to Pakistan. Please stop getting fearful. Playing such a brand of cricket will not take you anywhere. Feels disappointed to hear such lame excuses from the likes of Ramiz Raja who has been 92 World cup hero and a great commentator.”
Kaneria says that even Pat Cummins hinted after the match that the wicket was totally flat track. He says that ICC is likely to investigate the wicket and if the ICC imposes a ban on Rawalpindi wicket, then it will be for 1 year for international cricket.
Even Ramiz Raja would have scored runs on this flat track: Danish Kaneria
The former leg-spinner who has turned into a cricket analyst, says that anyone could have scored runs on this flat track including Ramiz Raja. He heaped praises for Nauman Ali who got wickets solely from his ‘skill’ and that his name did not get any mention after the match.
Earlier, the Pakistani chairman had come to the Youtube channel and gave reasons why the pitch wasn’t up to the mark as expected.
