Former seamer Aaqib Javed has questioned how the Pakistan team can be scared of playing on turning wickets.

His comments come after flat pitches were prepared for the recent three-Tests series against Australia.

He added that Pakistan should have taken advantage of the fact that they had two spinners in Sajid Khan and Nauman Ali, and ensured that the wicket gave them some assistance.

However, Pakistan ended up losing the series 1-0.

“Australia only has one main spinner while we have two mature spinners; we should take advantage of that. If we are even scared of playing on turning wickets then that is something shocking,” Aaqib was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.’

The two sides are now involved in the limited overs portion of the series, with the ODI series tied at 1-1 going into the third match on Saturday.
