PAK vs ENG, 1st Test Live: Twitterati questions Ramiz Raja for unavailability of DRS and Speed Gun ahead of historic Test
Pakistan and England were currently engaged with each other in the historic Test as the visitors took on Pakistan after 17 years. Still, due to DRS and Speed Gun unavailability, fans have gone berserk on Ramiz Raja for not providing these facilities.
However, taking a look at the T20I series, England defeated the hosts by winning 4 out of the seven games they played. Coming to the Test match, the England cricketers have been affected by an unknown illness before the first Test against the hosts.
Still, Ben Stokes and his men wanted to kick off the historic Test against the Babar Azam-led Pakistan side which is scheduled on Thursday at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi. Ben Stokes won the toss and opted to bat.
Things didn't go well for the hosts as both the England openers Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett provided a strong opening partnership, adding 174 runs in the first session of the game.
However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Ramiz Raja have been slammed by the fans due to the unavailability of DRS and Speed Gun during the first session of the game.
In that case, the Pakistan cricketers have to rely on the decision of the on-field umpires despite getting strong appeals from the bowlers. Finally, the DRS has been added and Zak Crawley got good use of it after being given out for LBW by the on-field umpire.
With DRS available, both sides will be happy to challenge the decision of the on-field umpire. However, the cricket fans lost their cool over Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Ramiz Raja and questioned them on Twitter for their improper arrangements ahead of the historic Test.
Why does Pakistan produce such worst pitches ? It's so flat that English openers are playing with ODI approach 😭😂 Rank turners are way better than such 5 day run fest pitches. 150+ bowlers are getting beaten like spinners #PAKvsEng #PakvsEng2022 #PakvEng— Anuugacchati Pravaha 🇮🇳🌦️🌋🌄🔥 (@tulunaduUtd) December 1, 2022

Playing national anthem of England even before they take ground. Empty stadium. Poor Food and Water. No DRS. Great start— FIFA WORLD KING (@FIFAWORLDKING_) December 1, 2022
