Australia’s 24-year quest to return on Pakistani soil has come to an end. Cricket requires Pakistan’s variety, climate, and numerous historic moments. Australia last played in 1998, and won the series 1-0 under Mark Taylor.
To commemorate the historic PAK versus AUS Test series, both the PCB and Cricket Australia have decided to rename the trophy the Benaud-Qadir Trophy, honouring Australia’s Richie Benaud and Pakistan’s Abdul Qadir.
Rod Marsh, a former Australian cricketer, died at the age of 74 after having a heart attack. Today, the Australian cricket squad will wear black armbands.

David Warner and Steve Smith, together with Marnus and Usman, remain consistent in the playing XI to help a superb performance.
Australia’s playing XI is as follows: David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (w), Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, and Josh Hazlewood.
