Pakistan have come under criticism for preparing lifeless tracks during the ongoing three-match Test series against Australia.

The first two games in Rawalpindi and Karachi were high scoring affairs, with the pitch for the first Test being slammed by several legends.

Former fast bowler Aaqib Javed has opined on the matter and said that the curators in Pakistan should take suggestions from India on how to prepare pitches.

“Why go anywhere else? Please speak to the curators in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai etc. how they prepare the rank turners, which Indian spinners dominate. I am surprised Pakistan haven’t been able to prepare a track that suits our spinners,” Aaqib said on a YouTube channel.

India recently played a two-Test match series against Sri Lanka in Mohali and Bengaluru. Both the tracks had something for the spinners, and even the pacers enjoyed bowling on them.

The first Test between Pakistan and Australia ended in a dull draw with not even three innings completed.

The second Test was a close affair, but Pakistan managed to salvage a draw after sensational batting from Babar Azam Abdullah Safiique and Mohammad Rizwan.
