Australia vs Pakistan 1st Test – Players to Watch
He is one of the finest batters in the Pakistan Test Team at the moment and also one of the highest run-scorers as well. He has amassed 2461 runs from the 37 test matches that he has played so far, and with the home conditions favoring his game, we expect him to pile on some more runs as well.
The hotshot bowler from Pakistan is just coming out of a successful PSL season, where his team walked away with the title. He has a love for taking wickets and we expect him to scalp a lot of Australian wickets in the upcoming series.
He is one of the most consistent players for Australia and is adaptive in his playing style. He scores big runs and can play a role with the ball as well. It will be interesting to see how he performs on a track that he has not played n for a long while.
When it comes to experience in the bowling attack, no one is as good as Josh Hazlewood on the Australian side. He has seen plenty of action in his career and he knows exactly how to exploit the conditions to get those quick and crucial wickets.
