New Delhi. The Pakistan cricket team will tour Australia for the three-match Benad-Qadir Trophy Test series later this year. All these three matches will be very important for Pakistan in terms of World Test Championship cycle. On Sunday, PCB made a tweet in this regard.
The three-match series between Australia and Pakistan will begin with the first Test match to be held in Perth from December 14. After this, the Boxing Day Test match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from 26 December. The last test of the series will be in Sydney from 3 January. Let us tell you that the final of the World Test Championship 2023 will be played between India and Australia at The Oval in England from June 7.
Babar Azam’s third tour of Australia
This will be the third Australian tour of Pakistan team captain Babar Azam as a player. Earlier, he went to Australia in 2016 under the captaincy of Misbah-ul-Haq and in 2019 under the leadership of Azhar Ali. In 2016, Babar was a complete flop in front of the bowling attack of Kangaroos. He was able to score only 68 runs in six innings of three Test matches. The 2019 tour was better than before. Babar Azam scored 210 runs in four innings of two Test matches with one century. Babar, who scored centuries in the T20 and ODI series against New Zealand, will also lead the Pakistan team in Australia for the first time.
