Pakistan bowlers disgusted with the skipper’s comment on them
Pakistan bowlers are unhappy with the comment made on them by their skipper Sarfraz Ahmed after the defeat in the second Test against South Africa.
Pakistan are currently having an outing in South Africa and they have started the outing in an unfortunate manner. Pakistan lost both Boxing Day Test as well as New Year Test against South Africa and resulted in the Test series loss for them.
In the second Test, Pakistan lost the match in a disgusting manner. South African bowlers managed to bowl out Pakistan for 177 and 294 in both innings respectively. But Pakistan conceded 431 runs in the first innings.
This has made the skipper Sarfraz Ahmed being frustrated and he lashed out at the bowlers in the post-match presentation too. He also mentioned that his fast bowlers were finding it difficult to bowl at 140 clicks regularly whereas the South African seamers were constantly bowling at 145.
The skipper further talked about the lack of discipline among his bowlers so far in the Test series. Sarfraz also stated the most common belief that for a team to win a Test match they need the bowlers to pick up 20 wickets.
According to reports, the Pakistani fast bowlers are not happy with the captain’s comments as he criticised bowling unit for not showing up when the team needed wickets and it is believed that the team’s environment has been obnoxious since the press conference.
At the same time, the wicket-keeper batsman praised his batsmen for their effort in the second innings to withstand a bit longer than the first innings and asked his players to make a strong come back in the third Test.
