Pakistan has just been reborn in the field of hosting international cricket. After the 2009 terror attacks, foreign teams have slowly started visiting Pakistan again. Right now the image of Pakistan had started improving in world cricket that now the credibility of the Rawalpindi Test pitch has been tarnished. Pakistan is again in the circle of questions in ICC’s Najps. And, this is because the threat of ban on the Rawalpindi cricket stadium is looming large.
Please tell that the England team is currently on a tour of Pakistan. And, he played the first Test match on the tour with the Pakistan team in Rawalpindi itself. England may have won the first Test match by 74 runs in Rawalpindi. But, during that match, the pitch there continued to be discussed about its nature.
International cricket will be banned in Rawalpindi!
It is now reported that the ICC has given a below average rating to that pitch of the Rawalpindi Test. Along with this, one demerit point has also been awarded. This is the second demerit point received by Rawalpindi within a year. While taking this action, ICC has also warned Pakistan that if this venue gets more demerit points, then it will have no option but to ban Rawalpindi from international cricket.
