Rawalpindi field detected with fault in 30 yards circle

Mohammad Nawaz - Pakistan

Pakistan Cricket broke the rules of cricket during the Pakistan vs New Zealand match. In Rawalpindi field, the size of 30 yards was not correct. When Pakistan was fielding, the place where the 30 yard mark should have been, was not there. The mark was more away, toward tge boundary line. Therefore, anyone can assume it to give more benefits to Babar Azam and his team.

The Kiwis were playing play the second ODI against Pakistan on Saturday at Rawalpindi Stadium. And such cases came into scene during the match. After the first over though, umpires Aleem Dar and Rashid Riaz moved the marks to the right place. New Zealand scored just four runs at that time. However, this happened only on one side of the field. But, the reason behind such distortion is still unknown.

Pakistan won the toss and decided to bowl in the 50 over match. Nasim Shah bowled in the first over. It was noticed after his over that the 30 yard mark was out of place. It was caught within one over. No major impact. But it is not clear who is responsible for such an incident or how it happened.

Batting first, New Zealand scored 336 runs against Pakistan. Darryl Mitchell scored 129 runs. Apart from him, Tom Latham got runs. He got out after scoring 98 runs. Opener Chad Bowes scored 51 runs.

Pakistan, thereafter came in to bat down the target. Fakhar Zaman opened the batting line up with Imam-ul-Haq on the other side. Though Iman went back to pavilion contributing just 24 runs of 26 balls. Matt Henry got his wicket with the likes of Master Daryl Mitchell.

The Pakistan skipper Babar Azam did played his role. He batted long, with this partner Zaman, and added 135 runs to the board. Babar himself scored 65 off 66 balls.

Shafique could not create impact in the Pakistan line up. But it didn’t count as Mohammad Rizwan gave justified company to Zaman. Rizwan stayed not out scoring a fast 54 of 41 balls.

On the other hand, Fakhar Zaman scored a huge 180 of 144 balls at the strike of dot 125. He thus guarded Pakistan to a 7 wickets victory at Rawalpindi against New Zealand.
