Australia vs Pakistan

Next week, Australia will travel to Pakistan for the first time since their memorable success in October 1998. The 1998 series is a memorable one for Australian fans. 

In the second rest of that series, Mark Taylor scored 334 runs with which he equalled the record of the highest score set by Don Bradman.

Considering the nature of the competition and long awaited history, this series will be a historical event in international cricket. 

Security concerns have kept cricket away from Pakistan since 9/11. A bus explosion near Karachi created a watershed moment in cricketing history and the 2002 tour was shifted to the UAE.

However, sports unites people and with the valuable efforts of PCB, cricket is back in Pakistan. During the 2000s, cricket was still played in Pakistan, with England and even India visiting twice. 

However, the heinous terrorist assault on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009 forced Pakistan to become cricket nomads, playing predominantly overseas for the following decade.

Primarily in the sterile environs of the UAE, which drew small audiences and imposed a tremendous financial strain on the Pakistan Cricket Board.

However, Test cricket returned to Pakistan in late 2019 when Sri Lanka, played matches to end a decade-long hiatus.

Pakistan has come home permanently after a slew of international matches and the inception of the Pakistan Super League since 2015.

There have been glitches in-between, with New Zealand cancelling their visit at the last minute due to a security concern late last year. 

Soon, England followed suit shortly after in a highly criticised move that contributed to ECB head Ian Watmore’s surprise resignation.

Despite everything, Cricket Australia has come ahead with a firm decision to play cricket in Pakistan. Australia is finally returning to playing in historically challenging pitches of Pakistan. 

The three-Test series beginning on March 4 and great curiosity on how the tourists would do in conditions they’ve never encountered.

A test match is a subcontinent can take any turn and can be concluded in 3 days. To make this series equal, Australia has prepared well as the current captain Pat Cummins has mentioned.
