After 24 years of wait, the Australian cricket team has reached Pakistan for a multiformat series. Pakistan vs Australia will start with tests, followed by three ODIs and a sole T20I on the tour. Rawalpindi, Lahore, and Karachi will host the tests, whereas Rawalpindi will host all the limited over games.
The Australian team players have completed their quarantine, and they have started their training. Pat Cummins and Steve Smith have expressed their pleasure on the arrangements by the Pakistan cricket board.
Although, ahead of the first test game, Pakistan received a major blow. The pace duo of Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf has been ruled out of the first test. Both of them suffered injuries in the PSL. Smith Smith is also facing vertigo issues, but he has started his training.

Rawalpindi’s Pindi Cricket Stadium will host the first game of the series from 4 March 2022. Pakistan Cricket Board have allowed 100% attendance for this game. The crowd came in huge numbers for the Lahore leg of PSL, and the PCB is expecting the crowds to come in huge numbers for the Australian series as well.
The sitting capacity at the Pindi Cricket Ground is 15,000 and preparations are in full swing at the venue. Pindi Cricket Ground has always produced good batting tracks with a bit of help for the spinners. In the initial looks, the pitch is looking on the drier side too.
