Pakistan Cricket Team lost the 3rd ODI & the series against New Zealand. The Black Caps won the decider by 2 wickets where there was a collective effort from the visitors. Skipper Babar Azam had a forgettable outing as the right-handed batter managed to score 4 runs in 13 balls.

The Men in Green would be utterly disappointed with their performance as they weren’t able to defend 281. It looks as if the hosts need to bring Sarfaraz Ahmed back into the ODI setup as he could provide stability to the team in the middle overs which is somewhat missing.

Salman Butt on Pakistan Pacers

Salman Butt was speaking on his YouTube channel and was furious on Pakistan’s bowling attack.  “I’m most disappointed with the Pakistan bowlers. What were they doing? Ye speed kya bank me jama karaani hai? (Do you have to deposit the speed in the bank?) Neither did you bowl bouncer nor did you bowl a yorker. The batter smashed you for midwicket and front of square towards six. No yorkers, no bouncers! At one point, I think Haris Rauf bowled 10 slower balls in his two overs.” said Salman Butt.

“You are a genuine pacer. You bowl fast. Where is your speed? Why didn’t you bowl a yorker? Even if you had missed a yorker, it’s not easy to smash a lower full toss for a six.” he added.

Wake up call for Pakistan

There has been too much chopping & changing in the Pakistan Cricket Team which has affected the team’s dynamics. Pakistani fans would be crestfallen with this performance as in their bumper home season, they couldn’t make a mark against England & New Zealand.

According to sources, it is assumed that Head Coach Saqlain Mushtaq would be replaced and there might be changes in the coaching setup as well. PCB has appointed Shahid Afridi as the new chief selector where he has brought some exciting talent but the players need to be given a long rope.
