The Pakistani Cricket Team is preparing itself for the upcoming tour of Australia which begins in a few weeks.  Hassan Ali is known to be a prankster and a fun-loving person on the field of play. It was evident during the practice session in Rawalpindi where the fast bowler was seen wrestling with Pakistani team masseur Malang Ali. 

Shan Masood and his side will play three tests against Australia which begins on December 14 in Perth. The series will end with the final test match which starts on January 3 in Sydney

The match at the Sydney Cricket Ground will most likely be the final test match for David Warner. The Australian opener has signaled his intention to retire from the longest format of the game after the Pakistan test match in Sydney.

The Asian team was seen practicing to gear up for the Australian which begins on December 6. The 2017 Champions Trophy winner was in his element as he performed wrestling moves on team masseur Malang Ali. The practice stopped for a bit as the other players could be seen enjoying the action during a grueling training session.

This is the first tour of Babar Azam as a player of the side after he stepped down as the Pakistani skipper. The 29-year-old decided to give up his captaincy after a disastrous 2023 ODI World Cup. Azam and his side finished fifth in the table having lost to Afghanistan for the first time during the campaign. 

34-year-old Shan Masood has been named the skipper of the Test side while Shaheen Shah Afridi will be the skipper of the T20I side. Aamir Jamal, Saim Ayub, and Khurram Shahzad are some of the newest faces on the test side. 

Pakistan will begin their tour with a four-day match against the Prime Minister’s XI at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. This will be followed by the first test starting on 14th December in Perth. This will be followed by the Boxing Day and New Year’s test matches in Melbourne and Sydney.
