Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes that abysmal bowling is to blame for the national team being 2-0 down in the ongoing three-match Twenty20 series against South Africa.

In the first Twenty20 International in Cape Town, Pakistan allowed South Africa to score 192/6, while in the second match, the Proteas amassed a total of 188/3.

While Pakistan lost by six and seven runs respectively, Ramiz pointed out that the men in green have to stop conceding a large amount of runs since it puts immense pressure on the batsmen.

“In both matches our bowling was rubbish,” he was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder. “In both matches we needed to hit sixes to win as the run rate was too high. However, our stats indicate that Pakistan is among the worst teams for the past two years when it comes to hitting sixes.”

Pakistan will be looking to claim a consolation win in the third Twenty20 International, which will be held on February 6 in Centurion.
