The second Test between Australia and Pakistan, which is set to take place in Melbourne from December 26 to 30, is coming up, and former Pakistani cricketer Azhar Ali is expecting a big show from three important Pakistani batsmen.

Azhar expressed hope for better batting performances, citing his own triumph in the 2016 Boxing Day Test in Melbourne with a score of 205* against Australia.

“I have a lot of expectation from Babar Azam, Imam ul Haq and Abdullah Shafique in Melbourne Test. I am hopeful that one of these batters would be able to score a double century in Melbourne like I did,” Azhar said.

“I have confidence that Pakistani batters can post scores around 450, 475 but it is important for Pakistan that the bowlers are able to bowl out Australia for not a bigger total,” he added.

After considering Pakistan’s poor showing in the first Test in Perth, Azhar Ali noted many important elements that were behind the team’s difficulties.

“There were matches, where batters had scored good runs but our bowlers were unable to bowl Australia out in those matches, it has been so long that Pakistani bowlers had bowled Australia out twice in a match, and this is where the problem is,” Azhar said

“People would say that Pakistan was bowled out for 89 in Perth but I think by the time Pakistan’s inning started, the wicket had become very difficult with an uneven bounce, and knowing Australia’s attack, I think that collapse was not unexpected,” he added.

It is noteworthy that the Men in Green lost the Perth Test against Australia by a significant margin of 360 runs.

The visiting team lost the match by a huge 360 runs after being dismissed for only 89 runs while trying to chase the home team’s imposing total of 450 runs.
