Yes, slow pitches discourage pace bowling. But, Pakistan produces world-class pacers in large numbers, despite dead pitches. Physique has to do with it, at least partly. But, we have well-built pacers such as Abul Hasan. BCB needs to make pace-bowling development a priority. Once a tradition is established, we'll get them in numbers. Pakistan did not have good pace bowlers. Them Sarfraz and Imran came. The rest is history. Rafique started the SLA thing in BD. We need just one world-class pacer to emerge.
