Pakistan set embarrassing record in 2-0 loss against Australia
Pakistan were down to a new low in their 2-0 series defeat against Australia. In their innings and 48 runs loss, the visiting side created a new world record for all the wrong reasons.
Pakistan team have now lost 14 back-to-back Test matches in Australia, which stood as the landmark for the most consecutive defeats in a single country in the history of Test cricket.
The previous record was set by Bangladesh who 13 matches all-together at home ground from 2001 to 2004. In last fifteen years, no team were defeated in a single country in so many matches.
Meanwhile, Australian opener David Warner who was awarded the Player of the Match as well as the Player of the Series, dedicated his performances to former Australian batsman late Phil Hughes. Hughes died five years ago when he was hit in the head by bouncer from Sean Abbott.
“This win for us is a bit of memory and reflection of our mates’ life (talking about Philip Hughes). It’s always a difficult time for us. I looked up to the skies to him and every time we come here and play, we do that,” Warner said.
Australia will now take on New Zealand, the second ranked team at present. Warner said he is looking forward to the challenge.
“We are going to come up against a quality opposition in New Zealand. It’s always a good contest. The conditions are probably going to suit their attack in Perth and we need to see what wickets are prepared and adjust accordingly. I’ll go back to the nets and practice hard. I’ll do my best.” Warner added.
