Former Pakistani spinner Danish Kaneria strongly criticised Babar Azam and his teammates, stating they were playing “cricket from the 1970s and 1980s.” Kaneria stated in a recent interview that the recent performance of the national team had been anything but exceptional and that for them to thrive once more, the focus must return to Test cricket. Pakistan hosting international cricket matches once more has been widely debated, but the spinner believes it won’t be enough to make them successful.
“Big problem. Choose first. The second problem, according to Kaneria in an interview with Cricket Country, is that we only talk about teams that play international cricket in Pakistan and lose there.
“Where is the focus on cricket in all this talk over Australia visiting Pakistan for the first time in 17 years? Zero. He asserted that you cannot set up a wicket to win a game.
Pakistan played 10 Test matches last year, winning only one of them. Even though the national squad lost four games and drew four others, eight of the ten matches were played at home. At Galle, Pakistan just just defeated Sri Lanka.
If you don’t have a bowler of that calibre who can help you take wickets, you have no chance. Abrar Ahmed, a young Chinese man, just entered.
He has finished bowling in both games four and five of the Test series. Look at the amount of bowling he has done thus far. You don’t have that off-spinner, though. What’s going on with Nauman Ali? Do they comprehend the system of captaincy? Do they understand how to position a fielder and a player? Nothing, no fight, he proclaimed.
