‘Technology isn’t that advanced here’ claims Australian curator Hough

KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed Australian curator Damien Hough asserted that the technology in Pakistan is not advanced as compared in Australia.

Following his visit to the Naya Nazimabad Cricket Ground to inspect the pitches in light of the PCB’s initiative for the improvisation of the pitches, the chief curator of Adelaide Oval Hough engaged in media interaction here and compared the technological advancement between the two cricketing nations.

“Compared to Australia, technology is not as advanced here. Whereas, cricket grounds here offer good facilities for the sport,” Hough stated.

“I did not come here to criticize anyone but to teach the technique of making grassy pitches. I am well aware of the fact that every nation has its own procedure for preparing the pitch but I am confident that together we can make better pitches in Pakistan that should be beneficial for both batters and bowlers,” he maintained.

The expert curator then went on to claim that he had a wonderful time visiting Pakistan to examine local pitches and outfields in light of PCB’s initiative.

“The experience of coming to Pakistan has been excellent so far. The people here are very passionate about cricket,” he said.
