That was marvelous series for Pakistan. Pakistan won the series 2-0 (clean sweap). That was actually not a white was, I would say that it was green wash by Greens (Pakistanis).
After Pakistan’s win over Australia, in ICC test ranking, Pakistan are promoted to number 3 from number 6. Meanwhile Australia are still at No. 2 followed by South Africa (No. 1).
It was not an ordinary win for Pakistan. They also created plenty of records including Misbah’s world record of century on 56 balls jointly equal with Vivan Richard (WI). I mentioned below few of the records list which Pakistan made in this series.
- Pakistan 7 time declared both innings in test match and very first time against Australia.
- Younis Khan become first Pakistani who made three consecutive centuries against Australia. England’s player (I can’t remember his name yet) made this 90 years ago (1924-25).
- Misbah made fastest century in history of Test Cricket jointly equal with Vivan Richard.
- Younis Khan’s double century in second test at Abu Dhabi.
- Second test was biggest win for Pakistan ever by 356 runs.
- Pakistan won series against Australia after 20 years, which is definitely great achievement for them.
- Australia lost their last 5 wickets against only 8 runs and second test and second inning.
- Misbah-ul-Haq is now most successful captain for Pakistan. Who made maximum runs for Pakistan as Captain and also Maximum wins for Pakistan.
- Zulfiqar Babar got 5 wickets twice in this series.
- It was Australia’s worst series all time. Definitely they can’t forget this series and they need to learn lot of to play in Asia, Specially against Pakistan.
We can’t ignore Azhar Ali’s performance as well, He made 2 centuries in second test. He was also big part of Pakistan’s win.
It is very good time for Pakistan. New Zealand are coming in UAE for 3 test, 2 T20s and 5 ODIs. First test match will begin on 09-Nov-2014 from Abu Dhabi. I hope and praying that Pakistan will continue same performance and New Zealand will also face their worst series.
In sha ALLAH
