Pakistan is playing with same combination which beat Australia in two matches series. Though Pakistan lost their T20 & ODI series against Australia but their come back in test against Australia was highly remarkable cause after around 23 years after Australia got whitewash. Specially, the batting performance by Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haque & Azhar Ali was tremendous.
Left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar (14) and Yasir Shah (12) shared 26 of the 40 Australian wickets between them to help Pakistan secure a comprehensive 2-0 win on the slow, turning wickets in the United Arab Emirates last week. it would be a difficult series for New Zealand to face Pakistan.
