VideosIndus Valley Civilization roads had more life: Shoaib Akhtar trolls Rawalpindi pitch

Srinagar: Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar on Thursday took a brutal dog at PCB for preparing a lifeless pitch for the Pakistan vs England first Test in Rawalpindi.

Playing first time Pakistan after 17 years, Ben England scripted history as they smashed a world record on Day 1 of the Rawalpindi Test.

Four England batsmen scored hundreds on the opening day of the Test series at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

Taking to Twitter after England batters run-fest Akhtar hailed the visitors for reinventing the longest format of the game.

“A start to a test match with two centuries with a strike rate of a hundred. This England team is surely reinventing the game,” Akhtar tweeted.

And @TheRealPCB reinventing the Indus Valley Civilization roads,” a fan reacted after Akhtar’s tweet.

“Indus Valley Civilization roads probably juicier & had more life in them,” Akhtar responded to the fan’s.

England’s Zak Crawley smashed 122 and Ben Duckett made 107 as the star batters enjoyed an impressive opening stand of 233 on Day 1 of the Rawalpindi Test match.
Centuries from Ollie Pope (108) and Harry Brook (101) then powered England to 506-4 in 75 overs as the Stokes-led side ended up registering the highest total on an opening day of a Test match. England skipper Stokes remained not out on 34 when bad light stopped play in Rawalpindi on Thursday.
