    Pakistani pitches are an absolute disgrace

    Switched on to watch the start of the game and immediately put off by the absolute dead nature of the wicket, irrespective of the result this is terrible viewing and extremely discouraging for the new ball bowlers. Very dissapointed with Babar.

    It is very disappointing. I watched bits of the recent first class games in Pindi which clearly had more pace and carry and spinners had success as well. So this is a deliberate move to produce a road and I guess ensure we donít lose the test match?

    Such defensive strategies usually backfire but we donít learn.

    Also whatís the point of playing 3 genuine pace bowlers on this track? Feel for them

    Exactly. These tactics won't even ensure a draw.

    If we lose the toss, which is what happened here, the batting will crumble under scoreboard pressure of 550 odd.

    I hope PCB does not base the future selections of these new bowlers based on their performance in this test. Or for that matter any future tests with pitches of this nature.

    Sure fire way to kill a young bowlers confidence level.

    It's clearly ordered by Rambo.

    Ramiz categorically confirmed during the Aus series that they made those highway hells to blunt Aussies pacers.

    Had Pakistan batted first with this sight of the scoreboard, we would all be jumping on the bandwagon in praise of Imam ul Haq and Abdullah Shafiq and whatnot.

    This Zahid Mehmood guy is not worth of galli mohhalla class cricket, lets see what does he do here. I will be pleasantly surprised to see him having any valuable role.

    As a Test specialist fan, I would like to add that nature of pitch often is made to look different by different class of bowlers. This is slightly worse than what Pakistani Test attack usually does, but that can happen. Nature of pitch usually reveals more after both sides have bowled, so I would wait fo rit.

    Which is the case preparing dust bowls and pitches which crack from 2nd day in India are equally bad, okay this road is probably worse but still unsporting pitches of any form shouldn't be supported. Subcontinent in general likes preparing batting friendly phattas or slow low too spinner friendly wickets, both are bad.

    Not sure how difficult it must be to leave a little grass on the wicket to atleast provide something initially. Rawalpindi's pitch in QAE 2022 was possibly the best in terms of the contest between the bat and ball, not sure why they though it was good idea to change it.

    Good captains and team managements can take the pitch out of the equation and still achieve results.

    Watch India's Bharat Arun inspired off middle stump tactics against Australia with a packed leg side field. The Indian bowlers kept on ruthlessly bowling maidens after maidens and gave nothing at all to the Australia batsmen and they successfully frustrated them into mistakes.

    Such an approach was even more vital on this pitch but no, you offer Babar a million dollars and he would still remain clueless on what to do.

    Cricket in any format is interesting to watch when there is a contest between bat and ball.

    Matches on dead wickets are not good for the broadcasters as well, you simply switch off and only check the score once every hour, so what's the point?

    It's always the norm. India produces more result oriented pitches and they are not dangerous for batters either egen though the pitches have decent pace and bounce as well. Not sure why PAK posters think their pitches can even be compared to Indian ones

    I think it was a excellent decision to have England batting first.

    They have taken initiative and taken Pakistan to the cleaners. At the rate, they need to bat 2 days and it will be game.

    Had Pakistan batted first, they would have been batting for the overs and not runs.

    they made good pitches for the south afirca series, then totally ditched them for these roads. also lets not go into the fact that guys like babar, riz, naseem, zahid, etc are all going into this test not having played a long format game in nearly 5 months.

    rambo only pays lips service to test cricket, scheduling, pitches, lack of a-tours shows he only cares abt leagues and t20s.

    Ramiz should upload a video during pitch preparation like he uploads dressing room videos too.

    Clown. Haven't seen a more chicken chairman than him.

    In addition, the team selection especially 7-11 is bereft of any logic and sense. If bowling average of 45 in the recent FC tournament is enough for getting picked, then the value of test cap is extremely low.

    If this is what the PCB and the Pakistan team wanted, test cricket needs to die in this country. Thoroughly unacceptable. They have a duty not only to the team but to the sport as a whole. Two historic series and the cricket and conditions have been diabolical. How can we aim to grow interest in test cricket at all with this? Nobody wants to watch matches on utterly dead pitches like this. Give the bowlers something!

    It might happen but it won't make the pitch better.

    Batting after fielding for 2 days with a deficit of 600 runs.....it becomes a different game.

    I think there's high chance Pakistan gets bowled out twice on this wicket. And also play at 2.5 rpo.

    True I prefer the pitches where Laxman Dravids stumps use to go cartwheeling by Asif/akhtar.

    Can't wait for Azhar Ali to come out and play a 50 of 300 type innings and be hailed as the next coming of Rahul Dravid the wall.

    Watch us bat like timid cats at 1.9 rpo and get bowled out for 250 in 130 overs whilst England are about to score 700 in the same number of overs.

    Pakistan has a boring cricket culture I am sorry to say. I can't remember a single exciting test match played on Pakistani shores ever whereas I can list numerous thriller games in other countries.

    These pitches are atrocious and smacks of cowardice from the PCB.

    rambo only pays lips service to test cricket, scheduling, pitches, lack of a-tours shows he only cares abt leagues and t20s.
    I'm starting to think that SAF series was an anomaly. SAF also bat like tailenders in Asia.

    Pakistan produce this emotional claptrap begging the world to tour a "cricket starved nation", yet can't even do the basics like preparing a good wicket. Maybe we're better off staying in UAE.

    lol, this england team would have mullered pak in UAE too. like baz and Williamson did in sharjah i think it was, mccullum knows pak cannot handle all out attacking cricket, the bowlers have wilted and are completely mentally shot in two sessions here.

    Ramiz Raja is the worst thing to happen to Pakistan cricket since the spot-fixing scandal.

    Such an approach was even more vital on this pitch but no, you offer Babar a million dollars and he would still remain clueless on what to do.
    I know you're a Ramiz fan boy but if you're justifying this pitch then you're either not watching the match or simply out of your mind.

    Pakistan should prepare crumbling pitches like in India that make it hard to bat. Batsmen like Babar can prosper on those minefields.

    Babar is one of the reasons they make these kind of pitches

    Not possible to prepare such dustbowls except in Karachi.

    Nah...it's all Ramiz's doing.

    Babar has been the captain for more than 2 years now and pitches were nowhere as bad then as we've seen under Ramiz's tenure.

    Flat pitches are flat pitches but you combine that with flat captaincy, flat bowling and a sprinkle of Bazball (England didnít actually go that hard, just naturally) and this is what you get. Pathetic all round

    Let's put it another way. Had Pakistan batted first, do you think they would have piled up 506 runs first day? Really don't think so. Yes, poor wicket, but poor bowling and captaincy as well.

    Rameez should be sacked.

    Complete waste of everyone's time preparing such wickets for test cricket.

    We saw the same thing vs Australia. Difference being Pakistan won the toss at pindi. This time we bat 2nd and they will crumble under scoreboard pressure of 600+ and I don't mind if that happens.
