Eng vs Pak: Traditionally, Pakistan is not one of the top fielding sides in the world. But, during the 4th ODI against England, the standards in the field hit a new low. Pakistan could not defend a mammoth 340 and this comes days ahead of the start of the World Cup. It seemed, Pakistan had the runs but it was their fielding that let them down. Yes, there was a stupendous catch taken by Junaid Khan of his own bowling but nothing more to speak of as they were shabby. This is the third time in the series that the Men in Green have set a total in excess of 340 and on all the three occasions they ended up on the losing side.

Here is how Twitter brutally trolled the effort and Pakistan’s fielding in general.
“We scored a big score, but our bowling and fielding were not at the top level. If we had caught, then the result of the match was something else. We are working hard, but our fielding level is not high and the World Cup is close, ” said Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed
Ahmed also added, “We missed many yorkers during bowling, Mohammad Hasan is playing his fourth match, he will still learn a lot. I hope the Imams will also be fine, their elbows have been hurt. ‘
