It appears that the Australia tour of Pakistan 2022 is grabbing headlines, and all for the wrong reasons. Firstly there was the criticism of the pitch which was termed “roads” by greats like Mark Taylor. And now an Australian cricketer in the squad has taken a dig at the Pakistan Cricket Board for another reason.
Marnus Labuschagne tweeted a picture of a meal that has daal and roti. The cricketer tweeted “Daal and roti for lunch too. Delicious“. The tweet appeared a sarcasm from the Aussie player and fans on social media were quick to spot it. Netizens even joked whether the cricketer has been in jail.
PCB is already batting the criticism of flat dead pitch at the Rawalpindi stadium which received a demerit point from match referee Ranjan Madugalle and it appears they are likely to face more criticism from fans for the food that has been served to the Australian team.
Marnus Labuschagne has established himself as the dependable no. 3 for the team and has scored nearly 8000 runs in first-class matches at an average of 46.09 which includes 21 hundred and 42 fifties.
Labuschagne scored 90 runs in the Australian first innings of the first test and looked in good touch for the hundred before getting dismissed. Due to the flat nature of the pitch, the Australian pacers were able to pick up only 4 wickets in the match. Pat Cummins tried everything and even bowled Labuschange a total of 27 overs in the match.
Last year, Alex Hales also criticized the PCB for the poor quality of the food that was served to him in PSL.
While the cricketer later pointed out that it was only one meal that was wrongly served to him, netizens were quick to troll the PCB as the food that was served to Hales included bread, and two eggs, one of which was already opened and appeared rotten.
The second test match saw a similar fate but went down to the wire as Australia grabbed quick wickets near the end of the 5th day. Babar Azam’s 196 runs came in handy. Rizwan also stalled the fall of wickets from one end and scored a fiesty 104 runs.
