Pakistan's fielding errors in the second test against Australia spark memes

Pakistan’s fielding errors in the second test against Australia spark memes. The Pakistani cricket team is still dreadful on the pitch. Throughout this Test tour of Pakistan, the Shan Masood-led team has missed a lot of catches, and as of the opening day of the second Test at the MCG, nothing had changed permanently for the Men in Green. Abdullah Shafique was given a straightforward catch at first slip in the third over of the day, but he ended up messing it up. Shaheen Afridi was the bowler, and he was silent and emotionless, with his hands on his head.

David Warner might have only received two points on the catch. Warner was eventually removed for 38 by Agha Salman, but Pakistan could have started so much better had the opening batsman’s catch been made in the third over. That wicket could have provided Shaheen with the much-needed momentum to bowl a magnificent opening spell, a quality for which he is renowned and which is now lacking from his repertoire.

Not to mention, the fielder and the Pakistani players were mercilessly mocked by the fans on the social networking platform X (previously Twitter) as soon as the catch was made. Athletes who make mistakes on the field face no mercy, as is the nature of social media. In this instance, Shafique was likely to face some criticism from the Pakistani supporters because he had dropped a sitter. 

For a very long time, Pakistan’s fielding has been their weakest point. Pakistan has never been regarded as a top fielding team, and many cricket analysts believe that they must improve their fielding if they want to be the finest team in the world.

The Day 1 was still in progress when this story was written, with Warner, Usman Khawaja (42) and Steve Smith (26) returning to the hut. Warner was out of the game after Salman took the first wicket. While Aamer Jamal removed Smith by getting an outside edge of the bat that went to keeper Mohammad Rizwan behind the wickets, Hasan Ali removed Khawaja.
