Australia vs Pakistan First Test Starts Under High Security

After 24 long years, Australia has gone to Pakistan to play Tests. The Test is starting on Friday. The series is named after two legendary cricketers. The trophy is named after Richie Beno of Australia and Abdul Qadir of Pakistan.

On Wednesday, the trophy was unveiled by Australian captain Pat Cummins and Pakistan leader Babar Azam at the Rawalpindi Stadium. The last time Australia came to Pakistan was in 1997. Mark Taylor’s team won 1-0.

Benoit was part of Australia’s first Test team to play on Pakistani soil in 1958. That was Australia’s first Test in any Asian country. Beno hit a half-century in the second innings. Australia lost that Test in front of the people of Karachi. In 1959 he became the captain of the team. After retirement, Beno gained a reputation as a commentator. He passed away in 2015.

Qadir, on the other hand, was the magician of spin bowling. There was almost no spinner like him in the whole cricket world, including Asia in his time. He played impeccably in the ’70s and 80s. Beno himself had great respect for Qadir. He has taken 237 wickets in 6 Tests for Pakistan.

Test Under High Security

Australia will play its first Test in Pakistan on Friday, ending a long 24 years. Tight security is in place across the city ahead of the first Test in Rawalpindi. Earlier last year, Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand was cut short. This time around, the Pakistani administration has deployed three-tier security measures in the stadium and adjoining areas to prevent any such untoward incident in the middle of the visit.

Australia came to Pakistan as the sixth country after 2019. In the last three years, Bangladesh, South Africa, and Sri Lanka have played Test series in Pakistan. This time the name of Australia is being added to that list.

Australia has not played a Test series on foreign soil since the Corona infection in 2019. After beating England 4-0 in the Ashes, Pat Cummins came to Pakistan. On the other hand, Pakistan has won seven of the last eight Tests.

As a result, experts believe that Australia’s fight against Babar Azam will be intensified. Except for Steve Smith, Usman Khoja, and David Warner, the rest of the batsmen have little experience playing in Asia. Besides, Abid Ali, Hasan Ali, and Harris Raufra are not in the Pakistan team in the first Test.
