Former England Captain Calls Pakistan Cricket “Unpredictable” After Their Loss To New Zealand

Written by Vipin Darwade

Pakistan yet again showed how erratic they can be by slumping to a shocking loss against New Zealand in the first Test match of the three-match series in Abu Dhabi, losing the game by a narrow four-run margin despite being in firm control during some of the crucial points of the game. This led to a sarcastic reaction from former England captain Michael Vaughan, who took to Twitter to call the Pakistan cricket team “unpredictable”.

He wrote, “Don’t you just love Pakistan Cricket .. so so unpredictable .. 130 for 3 needing a further 45 to win the Test & lose by 4 .. Test cricket is alive & kicking .. We have witnessed some great games over the last few months .. Pitches are the key.”

Chasing a 176-run target, Pakistan looked to be on track for a victory at Lunch, but yet another unexpected batting collapse ensured they were all out for 171 as New Zealand’s Ajaz Patel bowled exceedingly well to take a five-wicket haul.
