Former Pakistan cricketer Rameez Raja targeted Pakistan, said- 'Overrated players keep playing'

Former cricketer Ramiz Raja has come down harsh at the Pakistan cricket team following their series loss against a new-face England on Saturday. Ben Stokes-led England defeated Babar Azam & Co by 52 runs during a rain-curtailed 2nd ODI at Lord’s, to require an unassailable 2-0 lead within the 3-match series.

Pakistan suffered yet one more batting collapse during a run-chase. The visitors bowled out the hosts for 247 in 45.2 overs but did not put up a fight reciprocally . apart from Saud Shakeel, who struck his maiden ODI fifty, none of the Pakistan batsmen could withstand English attack.

Raja slammed the team for his or her below-par batting and expressed his disappointment over Pakistan’s loss to England’s ‘No.2 Team’. In his latest YouTube video, Raja said,

“If you map this series defeat on the Richter scale , the worth of shock will clock fifteen. It’s a huge blow and that i don't understand how one can defend it. It’s England’s No.2 team, in terms of talent”.

“If you're taking out Ben Stokes, not one player of the team that defeated Pakistan would get selected in England’s regular team in near future. We are talking a few glorified county team that has beaten Pakistan. People underestimated them and hoped for an ODI series win in England. But look how the tables have turned that now Pakistan are under the threat of a whitewash”.

“The performance isn’t defendable. If the alarm bells don’t ring now, I don’t know once they will. It’s a World Cup year, though it’s a T20 World Cup", and such headlines are unbearable Pakistan fans”, he added.

Raja also pointed at the coaches and questioned the team selection. The cricketer-turned-commentator further highlighted the sadness among the Pakistan fans, stating the team is losing their love and support.

“You saw their sad faces at Lord’s. They pride oneself in Pakistan cricket but we've lost their love and strength. Their attendance in England, Australia and even in South Africa are decreasing because their expectations are dying.

“How far more time should tend to the coaches before their performance is judged? Extremely awful selection. Some overrated players keep it up playing for Pakistan”, Raja said.

“I don’t understand the way to back this team". We expect them to enhance some areas and learn from their mistakes. But enough is enough. Fans are heartbroken and that they have an opportunity to form big changes within the team otherwise it might be a troublesome season.

“Once again, an utterly distasteful performance from Pakistan who lost against a No.2 England team", Raja concluded.
