'Our fast-bowlers haven't bowled up to the mark' - Sarfraz

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has expressed disappointment with his fast-bowlers for their lustreless performance in the second Test against South Africa.

The skipper in the post-match presentation ceremony said, “If you compare our bowling with their (South Africa’s) bowling, there was a big difference as our bowlers were not up to the mark,” said Sarfraz.

“Our bowlers were bowling at an average speed of 130 kph whilst their bowlers were bowling at 145 kph if you bowl with lack of pace you will not get wickets,” the skipper added.

Sarfraz also admitted that the bowlers gave so many opportunities to South African batsmen to score runs.

The wicket-keeper batsman also acknowledged that the batsmen didn’t put enough runs on the board which made bowlers’ job more difficult.

On Sunday, South Africa beat Pakistan by nine wickets on the fourth day of the second Test at Newlands to clinch the series by 2-1.

The result ensured a seventh successive home series win for South Africa, who won the first Test in Centurion by six wickets.
