Karachi :  The PCB is not satisfied with reported comments made by Tony Hemmings the chief curator at the Dubai Sports city that a bouncy pitch has been prepared for the Test series between Pakistan and Australia, reports PTI.

The two-match Test series starts next month.

“The PCB has already sent a letter to the Dubai sports city drawing their attention to Hemmings’ comments and to the fact that the series was a ‘home’ one for Pakistan,” a well- informed source said.

“The PCB has stated that they have specific ally asked for slow pitches which assist spinners for the Tests in Dubai since it is their ‘home’ series,” the source added.

Another source said the PCB’s reaction was understandable since they paid a handsome fee to the Dubai sports city organisers for renting the ground for international matches.

“The Pakistan team management has been preparing for the coming series against Australia with lot of stress on attacking through spinners. So they have got a shock after reading Hemmings comments,” the source added.
