Why Pakistan Performed Poorly In Recent Cricket Series?

Pakistan’s hopes for a dominant T20 series win against New Zealand were dashed as they fell short in a closely contested cricket series. Cricket pundits are dissecting the reasons behind Pakistan’s struggles. Let us discuss them one by one!

Yesterday was the last t20 match of Pakistan vs New Zealand played in Rawalpindi stadium. New Zealand won the match easily, dominating Pakistan in all three fields. Pakistan was recently trained by Pak Army in Kakul academy, the purpose of the training was to make them prepare for this cricket series and upcoming world cup in USA.

First match washed up by the rain, Pakistan won the second match with their brilliant bowling. However, New Zealand C team came back stronger and won the series by dominating the next two matches. This loss in the home ground raises a lot of questions among cricket professionals.

Some of them are pointing their fingers on some points. Some of them are as follows.

Top-Order Stumbles: Pakistan’s batting unit, known for its firepower, failed to click consistently. Renowned batsmen like Babar Azam struggled to convert good starts into substantial scores, leaving the middle order with the burden of chasing down big totals.

Bowling Inconsistency: While Pakistan’s bowlers displayed flashes of brilliance, they lacked overall consistency. Untimely leaks of extras and an inability to contain New Zealand’s batsmen during the crucial middle overs proved costly.

Key Player Absence: The series saw Pakistan missing some key players, including the impactful all-rounder Wahab Riaz. His absence might have weakened Pakistan’s bowling attack, particularly in terms of wicket-taking abilities.

Fans also showed anger and frustration towards this loss. They are accusing the management over this training and lack of professionalism in the decorum of the team. They want an immediate investigation and find the real culprit behind this poor performance.

Despite the disappointing results, the series served as a valuable learning experience for the young Pakistani squad. However, with the T20 World Cup on the horizon, the team will be looking to address these shortcomings and build a strong momentum for the marquee tournament.

Now team make a comeback in future matches or constant play like this? time will tell!
