Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday expressed disappointment over the “dead” pitch prepared for the first Test match between Pakistan and Australia that ended in a draw on Tuesday, ARY News reported.

Taking to Twitter, the information minister slammed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for choosing a dead wicket for a historic Test match.

“Extremely disappointed on PCB choosing a dead wicket for a historic test match. With such a furious Pak pace attack why would we need such dead pitches”, he questioned.

Fawad Chaudhry hoped that PCB will give positive cricket a chance in next Test matches.

It is pertinent to mention here that Australia’s first Test in Pakistan for nearly a quarter of a century ended in a draw on Tuesday at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

Opting to bat on run-filled surface, Pakistan had made 476-4 before declaring their first innings at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

Left-arm spinner Nauman claimed a career-best 6-107 on a flat track where bowlers struggled for success.
