WATCH: Pakistan's fielding did not improve, laddu catch dropped in the second test also


There is a saying in cricket that 'Take a catch, win the match and drop a catch, lose the match.' We have seen many such matches in which teams batted and bowled well but lost the match due to dropping catches and this is the reason why most of the teams have taken their ground fielding to the highest level but the fielding of Pakistan cricket team is not good. At present only God knows when there will be improvement because his poor fielding continues even on the Australia tour.

In the second Test of the series in Melbourne, Pakistan could have got its first wicket against Australia in the third over itself, but Abdullah Shafiq, standing in the slips, took a simple catch, due to which Australian opener David Warner got a lease of life. Shaheen Shah Afridi's ball hit the edge of David Warner's bat and Shafiq, standing at first slip, did not even have to move and the ball went straight into his hands but he could not complete the catch, due to which his teammates were disappointed.

At that time Warner was batting on only 2 runs and when Shafiq dropped this catch, Shaheen's reaction was enough to tell the whole story. You can watch the video of this drop catch below. Due to this drop catch, Pakistan's fielding has once again come under question and fans are having a lot of fun on social media.

At the same time, Warner could not take much advantage of this gift of life and he scored 38 runs in 83 balls before getting out on the ball of Agha Salman. In this match, Pakistan captain Shan Masood won the toss and decided to bowl. Masood took such a decision because rain was expected in the match and it was cloudy after heavy rain even before the match and he felt that the pitch would be favorable for fast bowlers and his bowlers would take advantage of the early help and put Australia in trouble. Under the leadership of Shaheen Shah Afridi, the bowlers got a lot of movement but by the time the rain came, Pakistan could take only 2 wickets. By the time play was stopped due to rain on the first day, Australia had scored 114 runs losing 2 wickets.
