Can Pakistan Cricket Team beat Australia at Lords?

Buzz this
Pakistan cricket team is set to play their first Cricket Test against Australian Cricket team at the Lords from 13th July. This is the first ‘Away’ Test series of Pakistan Cricket team. Pakistani team will play 2 Tests in this series against the Aussies.

Pakistan Cricket is in a recovery phase. The trauma that started from their Australian tour earlier this year in which Pakistani cricket team lost literally every match of series. And the controversies that hit Pakistan Cricket were destructive.

However, Pakistan team has a new captain, Shahid Afridi, the boom boom. Afridi has shown that team spirit and unity can change the whole scenario. The Pakistani team that looked like minnows, has now turned into a cornered tiger. They have already beating Australia in the 2 T20 matches. Yes, the T20 is a lot more different than the Test cricket but victory is a victory at the end of the day.

So, can Pakistan Cricket team win the Test Series? Well, it’s a very tricky question. Let’s analyze the two teams.

Australia Cricket team has wonderful depth in batting. They have a long list of Test Cricket specialist combined with great hitters like Mike Hussey. However, the bowling lineup misses the great names like Shane Warne, McGrath, Fleming etc. Australia does have some good fast bowlers but the spin area is really what Aussies must be looking to improve.

Pakistan Cricket team has a better bowling attack as compared to Aussies. Seamers like Mohammed Asif, Mohammed Amir, and Umer Gul can destroy any batting lineup. Danish Kaneria and the skipper Shahid Afridi have enough skills to create problems for Australian batsmen.

If Pakistan Cricket team included players like Mohammed Yousuf and Younis Khan, I would have certainly given Pakistan a slight edge. But in the current situation, Pakistan team lacks experience batsmen in their camp. The batting lineup is full of inexperienced batsmen, Umer Amin and Azhar are set to make a debut at Lords. England conditions have always been difficult for Asian batsmen, especially Pakistanis. However, this is also a great chance for these youngsters to secure a permanent place in the team.

That’s really interesting: Australia has great depth in Batting but they lack the variation in bowling attack. Whereas Pakistan team has excellent depth in their bowling but they miss the same in their batting lineup.

So, I think Australian Cricket team has a better chance to beat Pakistan team in this test series.  However, with the kind of bowling attack Pakistan has, they also have a fair chance to turn the game in their favor.

Your Turn Now: What do you think? Who will win the test series: Pakistan or Australia? Is Australia still unbeatable? Can Pakistan beat Australia? Or Anything Else…Tell in your COMMENTS!
