All set for Pakistan vs Australia 1st Test

Australia tour of Pakistan 2022 is set to get underway from the series opener 1st Test match scheduled to take place on 4th March at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. All eyes on Pakistan vs Australia since the visitors are in the cricket-loving nation for the first time in more than 24 years. The historic tour is what social media trends are anticipating momentarily.

Since 2019, Pakistan has welcomed Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, South Africa, West Indies, and Zimbabwe for the revival of international cricket in realm. Australia are sixth to tour Pakistan and the fourth to be on the Test tour here. Pak vs Aus will see three Tests, as many ODIs, and the only T20I.

The visitors are coming with a full-strength squad including the likes of Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja, and David Warner, but the rest of the team will almost be new to the Asian playing conditions. Although they look more stronger than Pakistan, but the hosts can make them struggle in the home conditions favoring them the most.

Pakistan are suffering some huge blows ahead of the Rawalpindi Test with multiple key players pulled out due to various reasons. They will be without all-rounder Faheem Ashraf, pacers Haris Rauf and Hasan Ali, and opener Abid Ali still suffering heart problems.

The playing conditions in Pakistan are almost unknown to Australia since their last training session was wiped out amidst the cloud burst in Rawalpindi. Also, there are chances that the Day 3 and onwards of the 1st Test can be affected due to rain.

The home siders have won seven out of their last eight match, winning two at home versus South Africa, and two away. On the other hand, Australia thrashed away England in the Ashes Test series from 4-0, with Sydney Test’s draw avoiding the series whitewash.

With all the countdowns getting Pakistani fans crazy to see international getting back in here, let’s see some reactions meanwhile.
