Former Pakistan Cricket team skipper and batting legend Mohammad Yousuf that even the current Pakistan team can beat this Australian Cricket team in a Test series.
Meanwhile, Indian National Cricket team became the first team from the sub-continent to beat Australia in a series at their backyard. They defeated the host 2-1 in the four-match in the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy. However, Mohammad Yousuf said the current Australian team is one of the weakest he has seen but insisted he was not trying to devalue the feat of the Indian team.
“What the Indians have achieved is big and they played well to win the series but it is also a fact that when Pakistan beat Australia one nil in UAE last Sept-Oct, I was not surprised at all. Such is the strength of this Australian side,” PTI quotes Yousuf.
In addition, Mohammad Yousuf said he has no doubt that if Pakistan went to Australia now, they would also have good chances of winning a test series for the first time.
“I think India and Pakistan compared to Australia are very good sides. India, in particular, has quality batsmen and their bowlers have also learnt the art of bowling in test cricket,” he continues.
Moreover, the former batting legend also tipped that Australia for the last two years had struggled to win outside their country. Also, their performance has suffered due to the absence of banned Steve Smith and David Warner.
“The Australians are struggling at the moment. Their batting is not showing quality and because of this their bowlers have also struggled badly,” he signed off.
