Pakistan cricket team has only themselves to blame against their recent defeat to the Australian team at Taunton. Pakistan looked lethargic and complacent for most of the time during their fielding. Pakistani fielders grassed three easy catches and conceded several runs through their sloppy fielding.
Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, however, has his side to improve their fielding standards ahead of the marquee ICC World Cup 2019 clash against India at Old Trafford on Sunday.
“We need to improve because if we want to beat bigger teams like Australia and India then all three aspects of the game are crucial. Definitely, I think the fielding needs improvement – the fielding is not up to the mark. We work together again, and work hard before the India match,” Sarfaraz said.
Asif Ali, at first slip, dropped Aaron Finch off fast bowler Wahab Riaz when Finch was on 26. The Australian skipper then went on to score 82 and built a 146-run opening stand with centurion David Warner to allow the champions to post a competitive total of 307.
