Kaneria, Pakistan’s leading spinner who has taken more than 250 Test wickets, made a tactful comment.

Britain, often credited with upsetting white-ball cricket, are now beginning to make a somewhat unimaginable impact on Test cricket with their bold, highly-powered approach. A seemingly dead Rawalpindi pitch, as often depicted as a ‘road’ by fans and pundits.
Ben Stirs up guided Britain to a 74-run thrashing of hosts Pakistan and take a 1-0 three-match lead.
Moreover, this is only conceivable because they scored more than 900 runs in about 7 overs throughout the Test match and had the ball to turn around in 5 days.
Actually, you read that right
Britain’s pacers swung round and stunned the Pakistani players, an artifact of the dominance of the Pakistani greats of yesteryear.
The former Pakistan leg-spinner hit out at Pakistan commander Babar Azam and PCB boss Ramiz Raja for the team’s presentation in the series opener. “Avi hamari the executives ak baat karenge, babar azam baat karenge, PCB ke matha baat karenge achi cricket kheli britain ne, hume unse finda chai. don’t learn Kab Chaihogge.
Time passes. (Currently our administration will talk, Babar Azam and the PCB boss will say ‘Britain played well, we should profit from them’. Then, understand at that time, when will you? It’s past the point of no return). This is what Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.
Kaneria, the premier Pakistan spinner who has taken more than 250 Test wickets, made a dissenting comment while slamming the young Pakistani pacers as incapable of pulling off the switch swing like their Britain counterparts. He said the Pakistan group executives will blame Shaheen Shah Afridi’s absence at present.
“They can blame Shaheen Afridi.
Unfortunately for the absence of chance that he is not accessible, then dusare achar beche aye thee? (Others have come to sell pickles?) Where is the preparation and arrangement, where is the reverse swing?” she said.
Ollie Robinson and James Anderson took four wickets each to bowl Pakistan out for 268 in the next innings. Britain’s main stirs up should likewise have received the bulk of the praise mainly because he even thought for a moment to bowl around tea on day 4 to give Pakistan a fair chance of a target of 342.
“Our administration fears misfortune. They simply say that the group has accomplished something useful. We are the No. 1 group. How can the Asia Cup be without us? etc., yet we don’t check where our cricket is going. We built the wicket that was called dead elastic in Rawalpindi,” he added.
