Pakistan vs Australia 1st Test Day 1
The poor performance in the Asia Cup had raised the ears of Pakistan team management. Taking the lesson from the defeat, Pakistan team management has included three big players in the squad for the home Test series against Australia, along with the first Test in Dubai starting today in Dubai. These players are Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, and Yasir Shah. Where Yasir Shah and Wahab Riaz are returning to Test cricket one year later. At the same time legendary batsman Mohammad Hafeez is back in Test cricket two years later.
However, legendary batsman Mohammad Hafeez has shown the magic of his bat as soon as he returns. Hafeez’s bat is speaking very well in the first Test being played in Dubai against Australia. Until the news is written, he is playing with 100 not out. This is his 10th Test century.
Imam ul Haq is giving them with them. Both have shared 176 runs for the first wicket. Bowlers like Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon, and John Howland have not been able to make any single wicket in spite of having tried millions.
It is obvious that the experience of Hafeez is coming to Pakistan. In the month of August, Hafeez was put in the B category in the Central Contract of PCB, after which Hafiz had spoken his voice about taking retirement. When that matter got quiet, due to the failure of the Yo-Yo Test, he could not be part of the Pakistan team in the Asia Cup.
However, Hafeez is now back in the Pakistan team, seeing the kind of batting he is batting, he wants to prove that he is still the best batsman in Pakistan by using more of this opportunity. The last time he played in the Test year 2016 in England against England at Edgbaston.
