There were 12 easy drop catches by Pakistan vs England test series. According to many analyst of cricket “catches win the matches”. Good fielding and taking catches is one of the key resources to win the match. Unfortunate Pakistani fielding side is very poor in this field.
In The Investec Test series Pakistani players dropped very simple catches and lose their chance to win the match. Especially in England the slip area is very important for both sides. Players like Younis khan, Hafiz and Azhar were appointed in this area but they all dropped some simple catches. England team always appoints their best fielders in this area and the got result.
Especially the performance of Muhammad Hafeez was poor, he dropped very simple ones. His performance was poor in fields, batting as well as fielding. Younis khan and Azhar also dropped some very easy catches.
Pakistani cricket cannot bear this type of performance from these senior players. Muhammad Amir bowled brilliantly in this series but approximately half dozen catch were dropped by the different fielder from his balls. If Pakistani players want to be the number one in all formats they should improve their fielding.
