Ramiz Raja Criticizes Pakistan Team After Defeat Against New Zealand

Chapman's aggressive fifty, supported by Dean Foxcroft, propelled New Zealand to victory in the third T20I at Rawalpindi.

Former captain Ramiz Raja expressed disappointment with the Pakistan cricket team following their defeat against New Zealand in the third T20I on Sunday in Rawalpindi.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, former Captain Rameez Raja criticized Pakistan's loss to a depleted New Zealand side on home soil, stating,

"Losing is a part of cricket, but such a defeat shakes the foundation a bit, especially with the World Cup just around the corner."

Raja emphasized the embarrassing nature of the loss, particularly against a New Zealand team that he described as not being a complete side. He highlighted the drastic turnaround in fortunes within 24 hours, from Pakistan's victory to suffering a defeat in the subsequent match.

Addressing Pakistan's batting performance, he urged the batters to capitalize on their starts and not throw away their wickets prematurely. He emphasized the need for longer innings and criticized the team's failure to post a competitive total, considering the pitch's potential for higher scores.
