PAK VS AUS: After the first Test against Australia ended in a boring draw, former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria slammed PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja for his explanation of the ‘dead’ Rawalpindi wicket. On his YouTube channel, Kaneria said that the PCB president has misled Pakistan cricket fans with his “lame” justifications for building such a lifeless pitch for the highly anticipated match. As he articulated himself, he said:

“What Ramiz Raja said today was nothing but a lame excuse and has misled Pakistani fans with the same. He has lied and has betrayed the fans. It’s okay, he was busy with his son’s wedding. He attended the wedding and then saw there was a lot of noise surrounding the dead wicket. The Test grew a lot of eyeballs as Australia was touring Pakistan after these many years. But what wicket did they produce for that?”

In a video posted on social media by PCB, Raja highlighted how the home team was without a number of key players for the Test. He agreed that there was little possibility for experimentation because they didn’t have a full-strength group for the match. According to the former cricketer, Raja did not want Sindhi players to be the center of attention.

Danish Kaneria charged him with failing to give Sindh and Karachi players a fair chance.

“Is Sindh not a part of Pakistan? Why this preferential treatment? I won’t shy away from saying that Ramiz Raja has the fear in mind that a player from Sindh might reach the top. Stop being afraid, if you play such cricket then you won’t reach anywhere.”

He added

In the second Test of the three-match series, Australia and Pakistan will begin their clash on March 12. The match will be held at the National Stadium in Karachi.

PAK VS AUS: Allrounder Faheem Ashraf Ruled Out of Second Test

Pakistan’s selection woes in the Australia series are likely to worsen as allrounder Faheem Ashraf tested positive for Covid-19 only days before the second Test in Karachi. Faheem is thus ruled out of the second of the three-match series, which begins on Saturday. He was also unable to play in the first Test due to a fitness issue, joined the home squad, and is placed in five-day isolation after returning a positive test.

Faheem missed the first Test in Rawalpindi, due to a hamstring injury he sustained while playing for Islamabad United towards the end of the PSL season. Over the last year, Faheem has been one of Pakistan’s best Test performers. He has hit crucial runs at number seven and provided more than adequate assistance to a four-man attack. Faheem’s replacement will be named as soon as possible, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Read more Betway online betting app reviews here and know about how online betting works.
