Pakistan cricket team’s recent performance is so cringing that it provokes the nation to blow out dazzling LCD’s. Pakistan has lost the Test series against New Zealand by 2-0, after getting all out at 186 runs in the second Test match at Christchurch on Wednesday, losing the match by an innings and 176 runs. What to say and how to say, is the damn serious question! Cricket Gurus & Fans Slam Pakistan Cricket Team after Losing Series against Kiwis.
Since then the cricket experts and fans are thumping the Pakistan side for their shoddy performance and reprehensible loss in the Test format. With the win in the series, the New Zealand cricket team is now at the top of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Test format ranking.
The team which lost early wickets during their first innings was brought back in the game by Kane Williamson after he scored a double century on day three against Pakistan.
Pakistani bowlers made unsolicited new records
Meanwhile, Pakistan bowlers have also set their unwanted new records, during New Zealand’s first innings of the 2nd test. After poor batting, fielding, and bowling Pakistan side is now in hot water. Former cricketers including Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Aqib Javed, and Pakistan’s popular international umpire Aleem Dar have rebuked the team, PCB, and coaches for poor performance.

Shoaib Akhtar smashed the team and Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) policies
“The board selects average players who demonstrate average performance against the international teams. PCB’s policies, keep bringing in average players, they keep playing average players, they keep making average teams and will keep doing average work, leading to average results. Whenever Pakistan will play Test matches, they will be exposed. They are playing school level cricket, and the management has made them school level cricketers”.

Aqib Javed Expressed his Concerns
“The appointment of Misbahul Haq as head coach “not suitable” for the cricket team. Waqar Younis and Misbahul Haq had no coaching experience but they were still given the roles with the national side. People who took this decision should be held accountable”.
Cricket fans also took to social media to criticize the cricket team
