How does Ramiz Raja see Pakistan’s main weakness?
Former Pakistan captain and analyst Ramiz Raja has underlined the biggest challenge the Men in Green face before the Asia Cup 2023 and ICC World Cup 2023. The ex-cricketer thinks Pakistan’s hitters need to adapt to handle Asian spin bowling. The Asia Cup in Sri Lanka and the World Cup in India will be spin-friendly.
Raja also remarked that skipper Babar Azam, who was dismissed for a duck in the first ODI, is crucial to the team. Haris Rauf’s five-wicket haul helped Pakistan win the opening ODI in Hambantota by 142 runs on Tuesday.
“Pakistan is facing issues against spin bowling and this is something they need to fix ahead of the Asia Cup and World Cup because they will be played in similar conditions,” Raja said on his YouTube channel.
“If we don’t resolve this issue, we will find it really hard to progress in a tournament.
“It seemed as if the Pakistan batters were like a rabbit that freezes when in front of a car’s headlights.”
“The Pakistan team is heavily reliant on Babar Azam, be it Test cricket, ODIs or T20Is. He makes the headlines even when he is dismissed for a duck,” he said.
