Dropping Catches a ‘Major Reason’ for Defeat | Babar Azam Reacts to First Test Defeat:
The First Test Match at Jamaica between Pakistan and West Indies was one of the most thrilling and exciting Test Matches in recent years. With lots of twists and turns, West Indies managed to escape with the win. Pakistani bowlers did put a great effort, but defending 168 runs is never easy. The major reason behind this defeat of Pakistan was Pakistan’s batting as well as fielding.
Skipper Babar Azam reacted to this defeat saying that ‘Dropping Catches at crucial moments can cost you the game’. The same happened with Pakistan when Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas and Mohammad Rizwan dropped catches on day 4. Although Hasan and Abbas bowled well, while Rizwan also took a stunner after his dropped chance but West Indies managed to avoid the defeat. Skipper Babar Azam further said that, “We took some brilliant catches too but that isn’t an excuse for dropping other catches”.
Babar Azam admired the effort put in by the Pakistani Players and he seemed satisfied with his side’s performance. ‘I am satisfied with the way Abbas, Hasan and Shaheen bowled’, Babar Stated. The Pakistani skipper also said that a lot of things were happening in this Test and that it wasn’t a one sided contest at any point. ‘There was no particular day when a single team showed dominance. Both teams fought well on every day’, Babar added.
The final Match of the series as well as the tour will be played from 20th August 2021 at the same venue of Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica. Currently the West Indies side is at top of the World Test Championship 2023 table and they will surely look to strengthen their top position during the 2nd Test against Pakistan.
