ENGvsPAK: Former veteran got angry after losing the series to England, said - Pakistan's defeat was like a strong earthquake
Former batsman Ramiz Raja is extremely upset with Pakistan losing the series to a second-rate team in England. He said that if you measure the loss of the series on the Richter scale, then it is a big blow and its value should be calculated as 15.
New Delhi. The Pakistan cricket team is facing all-round criticism after losing the second consecutive ODI to England's second-rate team. Former Pakistan batsman Ramiz Raja is also angry with this defeat. He compared this defeat to the shock of an earthquake. Raja said that if you measure the loss of the series on the Richter scale, then the value of this shock will be 15. This is a big blow and I don't understand how anyone can defend it. In terms of talent, it was the number two team in England, yet you lost to it.
Raja said in his YouTube video that if you remove Ben Stokes, then not a single player from this team that defeated Pakistan will be able to make it to England's regular team in the near future. We are talking about the county team which defeated Pakistan. We underestimated them and were hoping for an ODI series win in England. But see how the whole dice has turned and now Pakistan is in danger of a clean sweep.
When will the performance of the coach be judged: Rameez Raja
Former Pakistani batsman further said that this performance of the Pakistan team cannot be defended under any circumstances. If we still don't wake up then I don't know when we will wake up. T20 World Cup is to be held this year. Raja also questioned the coach and team selection. How much more time should they be given before judging the performance of the coach, he said. Very poor team selection. Some overrated players are playing continuously for Pakistan.
'Fans no longer want to watch Pakistan's match'
He also pointed towards the disappointment of the fans. He said that you could see the hanging faces of Pakistani fans at Lord's. They are proud of Pakistan cricket but we have lost their love and strength. Fans no longer come in large numbers in matches against England, Australia and even South Africa. Because the expectations from his team are dying.
England, making excuses on embarrassing defeat, defeated Pakistan by 52 runs, tell that in the rain-interrupted second ODI, the England team led by Ben Stokes defeated Pakistan 52 runs and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. In the match, Pakistan had dismissed England for 247 runs in 45.2 overs. Barring James Vince (56), none of the England batsmen played a big innings.
Hasan Ali took five wickets for 51 runs for Pakistan. Pakistan got a target of 248 runs in 47 overs to win. But the entire team was all out for 195 runs in 41 overs. Saud Shakeel scored 56 runs for Pakistan.1
