Pakistan cricket fans are certainly irked over Wahab Riaz. The pacer has not performed to any extent in the first two test matches in Australia and then there is the issue with his landing. Wahab Riaz has bowled 12 no balls in the second test match at MCG. Pakistan players have been fined 20% of their match fees. Now the interesting thing is Pakistan was two overs short of the actual over rate. Those 12 balls which made Pakistan late were the no balls which Wahab bowled. The pacer needs some serious advice.
Pakistan has lost the second test as well and there are many people who are blaming the bowling now. Earlier in the England and New Zealand test series we saw the batters been banished for their work and no one talked about the bowling. But now people have realized that even the bowling or it so called strong bowling attacked looked absolutely lame. There was pace from the Pakistan bowlers and that was it. Nothing in the name of line and length. Australians batters were hardly tested.
Coming back to Wahab Riaz who is consistent member of Pakistan team across all three formats definitely needs some doze. He should be dropped immediately across all three formats and that is what majority of the Pakistan cricket fans are now demanding. The social media is pretty blazing at this moment.
They want Wahab to be given some lesson. Mohammad Amir is not a certain pick now as far as red ball is concerned. He has not produced something which the people were expecting from him. With the red ball Amir is struggling. Pacer Mohammad Asif believes that his wrist action is now changed and that is why id not bowling like he used to.
Pakistan batting line has done extremely well and that was something which no one was expecting at all. The fans were thinking that Pakistan batting line will be tarnished in Australia. It has been but only in one innings out of four they have played. Pakistani batsman Azhar has a double ton in Australia. Asad hit a hundred in the first test. Even the tail batted well for Pakistan. The bowling did the worst job possible. The Australian wickets give a lot of bounce and Pakistani pacers could not utilize this bounce. There was nothing from Yasir Shah. He is not getting spin and as a result he is not getting wickets. Pakistan needs him to fire but the lack of varieties is something which is not letting him get away.
