BCCI to help PCB prepare better pitches in Pakistan?

The ongoing three-match Test series between Pakistan and Australia is yet to see either of the two teams win a game. So far, both the Tests have been a draw. Both have been high-scoring games as well.

While the first Test in Rawalpindi saw an absolute road, where batters from both sides scored a lot of runs, the second Test in Karachi wasn’t too different either. Barring the second innings where the hosts suffered a batting collapse, the pitch didn’t really seem to be threatening for the batters. Hence, several pundits and experts have gone on to criticize the PCB for the pitches.

Recently, Aaqib Javed asked PCB to pick a leaf out of the book of Indian curators. He felt that Pakistan need to produce rank turners, which will help their spinners. He was also surprised that the hosts didn’t produce a spin track as of now.

“Why go anywhere else? I would say find out from the curators in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai etc how they prepare the turners on which Indian spinners dominate. I am surprised until now Pakistan has not been able to produce pure turning tracks, which will help our spinners,” Aaqib Javed said on a YouTube channel.

The third Test will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore from March 21. With the series at stake, PCB will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the pitch isn’t flat like the previous two Tests. According to a report by News 18, a source said that PCB’s chairman Ramiz Raja has been doing his best in order to improve the pictures in the nation.

“He wants to also change and improve the process of preparing pitches and Lumsden might also be given a longer assignment to help train the local curators,” said the source. Thus, the final Test promises to be a cracker of a contest. It will be exciting to see which team comes at the top.
