Srinagar: Former Pakistan captain has lashed out at Pakistan pacers after team suffered ODI series defeat against New Zealand on Friday.
Pakistan suffered 2-1 defeat in 3 match ODI series against Kiwis. It was first time New Zealand won ODI series on Pakistan soil.
Following the disappointing outings from Babar and co. on home pitches, former cricketers are criticising Pakistan and Salman Butt also didn’t mince his words as he talked about the side’s indifferent performances.
“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,” Butt said
“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,” Butt further added.
