Australia’s Test tour plan is released by the PCB.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) released the schedule for the Benaud-Qadir Trophy Test Series against Australia on Sunday. The series will take place at the end of this year and into next year.
“Later this year, Pakistan will go to Australia to play for the Benaud-Qadir Trophy. “The three Tests, which are part of the third World Test Championship cycle, will be played in December and January in Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney,” Cricket Australia said in a statement.
According to a statement from the PCB, the first two Tests of the series will take place in December 2023, and the third Test will take place in January 2024.
The last time Australia and Pakistan played red-ball cricket against each other was in March of last year. Australia won the three-match away series.
“This will be Babar Azam’s third trip to Australia for a Test match. The powerful stroke-maker has been to Australia before, in December 2016 with Misbah-ul-Haq as captain and in November 2019 with Azhar Ali as captain, according to a press release from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“In five Tests, the right-hander has scored 278 runs, including a hundred. During the 2019 tour, Babar got a century in the second innings of the first Test in Brisbane. He then got 97 in the second innings of the second Test in Adelaide.
