Pakistan men’s cricket team is set to tour Australia for a 3-match Test series starting from 14 December 2023. This Test series will form a part of the 2023-2024 World Test Championship.
Pakistan Cricket Board has made some big changes in the management and leadership. A new director of cricket, head coach, selector and new captain have been appointed. Batsman Shan Masood will now lead the Pakistan red-ball team as Babar Azam stepped down from the position after a below average performance in the ODI World Cup.
Australia, on the other hand, will feel confident after winning the ODI World Cup trophy for the 6th time and having the Test series in their backyard. Aussies are a tough side to beat in red-ball cricket at their home grounds.
The red-ball tour between Australia and Pakistan will start on 14th December with the 1st Test match at Perth Stadium in Perth. Take a look at the full squads, predictions, key players, head to head record and schedule for this series.
The last time Australia and Pakistan faced each other in a Test series was in 2022 when Australia won 3-match series by 1-0 in Pakistan. The test series between AUS and PAK has been titled ‘Benaud-Qadir Trophy’ which started off with the 2022 series.
Pakistan last won a Test series against Australia in 2018 when they defeated them by 1-0 in a 2-match series. The series took place in the UAE.
Australia and Pakistan have played 69 Test matches against each other and Australia has the upper edge with 34 wins while Pakistan has managed to win on 15 occasions.
The upcoming Test series will be hosted by Australia where they dominate with 26 wins in 37 Tests against Pakistan. PAK has won just 4 Test matches in Australia.
