Pakistan v Australia Test :  What could be the reasons for Australia favor in Test series starting from Rawalpindi?

There is a tradition in Test cricket that when a visiting team starts a tour the host country takes its first test in its most difficult conditions.

For example Adelaide and Sydney are two wickets where there is no traditional Australian bounce and from the third day the spinners start getting some help.

But whenever Pakistan visits Australia the first Test is always scheduled in Brisbane so that the bounce of Gabba scary wicket can shatter the confidence of batsmen accustomed to Asian conditions.

Problem for Pakistan however was that to make this historic tour possible the PSL had to be held out of its window & it was not possible for the first test of authentic batsmen like Pakistan Warner Luboshen & Smith to take a slow wicket at Lahore.

& Rawalpindi is one of the few wickets in Pakistan that supports fast bowlers with pace and bounce. Therefore there will be no embarrassment for this Australian XI playing in Rawalpindi to have an attack full of famous fast bowlers.

It will also be difficult for Pakistan to form the right XI after the injuries. The unavailability of Hassan Ali and Haris Rauf has limited Pakistan's options.

Faheem Ashraf injury is an even bigger shock as to how to keep the balance of XI in his absence as he has the best average in batting and also distributes a lot of load to fast bowlers.

Apart from this, after just four days of PSL mara mari how will key figures like Shaun Masood, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan be aligned with the mindset of Test cricket.

Although there is a problem in the Australian camp that they have not experienced Pakistani conditions for 24 years but considering the ground realities the Australian team looks superior. This is also the evidence of ranking and the recent record also gives evidence here.
