Former Pakistani fast-bowler Shoaib Akhtar is not at all happy by the way the Pakistan cricket team is playing against New Zealand. He has gone on to say that the Pakistani players are playing like school boys.
With Pakistan firmly on the receiving end of the ongoing second Test against New Zealand, Shoaib Akhtar has once again bashed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). With a great performance by the skipper Kane Williamson, the New Zealand batsmen sent Pakistan bowlers on a leather hunt on the third day of the Test as the hosts piled up a humungous total of 659 for 6 before declaring.
Williamson, who had scored a century in the first Test of the series too, scored 238. He went on to score 369 runs with Henry Nicholls as the duo recorded the third-highest partnership for the Kiwis in the longest format of the game. Before their amazing partnership, New Zealand were reeling at 71 for 3 in reply to Pakistan’s first innings total of a mere 297.
Shoaib, being a regular critic of Pakistan’s game is very sad by Pakistan’s mindset in the test and is ridiculed by the performances that the players are giving at the highest level of the game.
“The policies of the Pakistan Cricket Board is seeing them get what they had sowed. They keep bringing and playing average players, and they keep making an average team and will continue to do average work and because of this, average results will keep coming,” Shoaib Akhtar said in a video he shared on Twitter.
“Whenever Pakistan will play Test cricket, they will be exposed. They are playing school-level cricket and the management has made them school-level cricketers. And now they are again thinking to change the management but when will you change?” the ace bowler concluded.
