Safety question arises in Rawalpindi Test
Bangladesh cricket team had gone to Pakistan to play Tests amid widespread security concerns. Two teams had faced each other in the first of the two-match Test series yesterday in Rawalpindi.
While Pakistan had made extensive preparations for the safety of the players, a big safety question had been raised during the game when a kite entered into the field.
The incident happened shortly before the afternoon tea break. Mohammad Mithun and Taijul Islam were fighting for managing miserable situations of Bangladesh who were under the pressure of Pakistani pacers. At that time, a kite flew into the ground. The field umpires were forced to stop playing for a while.
A fielder grabbed the kite ahead. Immediately a field worker came out of the field and took the kite.
Whatever security concerns were immediately raised among the fans who opposed to sending the national team in Pakistan. People already started criticizing in social media.
Belayet wrote on Facebook, if a kite enters into the field like this, who knows what other things can enter into the field also?
Prabhas wrote that as soon as the kite came on the field, the players should have left the field.
Meanwhile, Pakistan pace star Shaheen Afridi stole the limelight as visiting Bangladesh slumped into a miserly total of 233 runs in their first innings on day one of the first Test at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Friday.
