Akhtar has targeted Team India
Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has targeted Team India on his YouTube channel. Shoaib Akhtar said: “A pitch where there is an excessive turn and the game is over in two days is not a good thing for practice cricket. India are a very strong team and in such a situation they should have set a good ground for the Test.
“ There was no need to make such an argument ”
Shoaib Akhtar said: “India would have beaten England even if they had played on a better pitch, but they didn’t need to make such a pitch. Team India didn’t have to be afraid. Akhtar said: “ Has useful ground been made for Team India in Melbourne? How did India win the series there?
Expect better pitch from a big team like India
Shoaib Akhtar said: “The house advantage makes sense, but I think it’s not fair to reap so many advantages. If India had scored 400 points and England had come out for 200 points then we could have said that England had a bad game, but here too India was eliminated by 145 points.
Akhtar added: “A better team is expected from a great team like India. India does not need to prepare such windows. I think India should focus on this. They are a much better team than this. If the Indian team can beat Australia at their home, then there was no need for them to make a useful spinner pitch.
