PCB Looking For Alternative Venue For Australia Series

Despite Pakistan's brilliant performances at the adopted home venue in UAE, the Pakistan Cricket Board is looking for an alternative venue for the series against Australia starting in August this year; that keeping in mind that a series won't be possible in the searing August heat in UAE.


Pakistan have a series scheduled against Australia which will comprise of five One Day Internationals and three T20's. The PCB is still searching for a venue however the proposed Bangladesh's tour of Pakistan may alter plans.

“Our priority is to host Australia in Pakistan but that depends on the tour of Bangladesh,” an official said speaking to The Express Tribune. “We can’t play in the UAE at that time of the year, the heat will be unbearable. So we’re in the middle of rounding up alternative venues, including England and Sri Lanka, and will make a decision that works financially as well.

“UAE has been good for us results wise as well as financially. Sri Lanka gets us a decent crowd too but that’s slightly more expensive. And as we saw in 2010, people love to watch Pakistan play in England. And we have a few more options too.”

England Are Unproven Number One's says Javed Miandad

Former Pakistan test batsman Javed Miandad has questioned England's status as the number one test side in the world after Pakistan defeated them inside three days win in the first test in UAE.


"I don't believe much in rankings because it doesn't give a clear picture of the team's overall performance in the world," Miandad said talking to ESPNCricinfo. "England is mainly the top side without playing in Asia and you must give credit to Pakistan that they have been playing with no home advantage and still they are winning. England are now the No. 1 team because they had the home advantage and never lost in their backyard." 

Pakistan won the first test by ten wickets after a brilliant bowling performance by star spinner Saeed Ajmal, the off spin wizard in the process took over England's Graeme Swann as the number one spinner in test cricket after replacing him in the third spot in the Test bowlers ranking.
The second test between the two sides starts on January the 25th.

Pakistan vs England Ist Test | Live Streaming

Pakistan vs England Ist Test Dubai, 2012: Even though England are currently the number one ranked test team it will be as bigger a test for them as it will be for Pakistan. Despite being number one and being dominant at home and in Australia, England have generally been poor in Asian conditions. On the other hand Pakistan who had a very successful year where they didn't lose a test know that they faced rather mediocre sides and England will be their first real test to prove that they really are a side on the rise.

Pakistan's tour to England in 2010 ended badly, three of their players were involved in a match fixing scandal and are now serving an ICC ban and are currently in prison in UK. The tour also saw some heated verbals and even a physical confrontation between Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz and English batsman Jonathan Trott, pacer Wahab is part of the current squad too.
