Pakistan are gearing up for their critical away tour against Australia with a warm-up match against Prime Ministers XI in Canberra. Ahead of the pivotal series, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram shared some invaluable advice, urging both the team and the board to exhibit courage and patience. Akram emphasized the need for bravery on the field and advocated for the board to uphold decisions for at least a year before assessing their impact.

Pakistan will embark on a fresh chapter after the post-ODI World Cup shuffles with the three-match Test series. The team has undergone significant changes as Babar Azam stepped down as captain following the ICC World Cup 2023 debacle, coinciding with alterations in the Pakistan Cricket Board's Selection Committee.

“The Pakistan team has reached Australia, wish them all the luck. Best wishes especially for the new additions, like Wahab Riaz the new Chief selector, and Kamran Akmal, the consultant member to the chief selector. Let’s give them time. They are present cricketers, now it is their time, let’s give them 1 year,” said Akram in a video posted on 'X'.

“One more advice, don’t call press conferences every 3 minutes, stick to your decisions. If you have taken a decision then you should know about the consequences. If you are in two minds, so will be the team. Stick to your decisions and be brave,” he added

Pakistan players left stranded at airport on arrival

Upon their arrival in Australia, a peculiar scene unfolded as Pakistan cricketers were spotted loading their luggage, including kit bags, onto a truck. This departure from the norm stirred curiosity, prompting speculation about the circumstances surrounding this unusual sight. Notably, senior player Mohammad Rizwan led by example, assisting his teammates in loading their kit bags and even taking moments to oblige fans with selfies.

Meanwhile, the Test series is slated to commence in Perth from December 14, followed by fixtures in Melbourne from December 26-30 and Sydney from January 3-7. Pakistan have never clinched a Test series victory in Australia, yet the new skipper Shan Masood views this upcoming tour as a chance to rewrite history, eyeing an opportunity to alter the course of their cricketing legacy Down Under.
