Starting tomorrow, Pakistan, currently trailing 1-0 in the three-Test series, will take on Australia in the second Test at Melbourne.
Pakistan’s all-rounder, Shadab Khan, is optimistic about the chances Pakistan can win the Australia Test series. With the team trailing 1-0 in the series, Shadab believes a strong performance from their bowlers could turn things around for the Green Shirts.
Speaking ahead of the second Test in Melbourne, Shadab expressed confidence in the team’s morale, emphasizing their ambition to clinch the series victory rather than just aiming for individual match wins. Pakistan hasn’t won a match in Australia since 1995 and is determined to change that narrative this time.
Highlighting the favorable conditions in Melbourne and Sydney for their style of play, Shadab stressed the importance of the bowling unit taking 20 wickets to secure a potential series win.
However, Pakistan is grappling with injury concerns, with several players ruled out of the Test series due to injuries and medical reasons. Shadab acknowledged these challenges, attributing some injuries to the demands of the game and the need for proper recovery.
Regarding his team, Islamabad United’s composition for the upcoming PSL 9, Shadab mentioned efforts to create a stronger lineup. He emphasized that while a team might appear strong on paper, it’s the performance on match day that ultimately determines success.
