Srinagar: After facing embarrassment in Rawalpindi for below par pitch, Pakistan has sent former cricketer and current batting coach Mohammad Yousuf to Multan to prepare pitch for the second Test against England.
A report in Geo said that on advice of head coach Saqlain Mushtaq and captain Babar Azam, Yousuf has left for Multan in order to share his input with chief curator ahead of the second Test.
“The PCB and Pakistan team management is keen on preparing a pitch which gives advantage to Pakistan bowlers,” report said.
Pakistan and England will reach Multan on Tuesday for the next match of the series.
Earlier, Ramiz Raja Pakistan Cricket Board chief, said he was “not happy at all” over the state of the pitch, which he admitted was “not a great advert” for Test cricket.
“We live in the dark ages of pitches in Pakistan,” he told reporters, adding, “it´s embarrassing for us, especially if you have a cricketer as chairman.”
