VIDEO: Mohammad Asif Credits Bowlers For Rishabh Pant’s Century, Says His Century Was Bowler’s Fault

Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has criticized the England bowlers for not bowling well to Indian batsman Rishabh Pant in the ongoing Test match between England and India at Edgbaston. Pant scored 146 runs in the first innings of the Edgbaston Test, taking India out of trouble. After seeing his innings, all the veterans of the cricket world are praising him fiercely.

But in the meantime, Mohammad Asif might not have liked Pant’s batting. Instead of praising his century, he was seen calling it the fault of the England bowlers. Mohammad Asif, who was banned after being found guilty in the spot-fixing case, raised questions on Pant’s technique in a video that surfaced on social media.

The Indian team’s score in the first innings was five for 98 in the opening session of the match. The England bowlers were wreaking havoc as expected and India’s top order once again flopped badly. After this, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja shared a 222-run partnership for the sixth wicket and took over the Indian innings. Pant was dismissed for 146 and Jadeja also played an innings of 104 runs.

“It was totally England bowlers’ fault as Pant did no wonders. He [Pant] has technical faults. His left hand doesn’t work but still, he managed to score a century because English bowlers didn’t bowl to him in his weak areas,” Mohammad Asif said on the Twitter video.

“I will not name individuals but England made a lot of mistakes. When Jadeja and Pant were batting, they brought in a left-arm spinner who wasn’t an ideal option to bowl at that moment. I am not against Pant, but with such decisions by the opposition, you get an edge to score big,” he added.
