Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja firmly believes that the national team “have absolutely no chance of winning in Australia”.
Ramiz feels that Pakistan have chosen the wrong bowlers given the conditions in Australia and don’t have the mindset of going there to win.
“I can already tell you that with this bowling attack, we have absolutely no chance [of winning] in Australia,” he said in a YouTube video as quoted by cricketpakistan.com.pk. “We should have gone with the intention to win in Australia rather than just to give them a fight. If the team fails to deliver in Australia, selectors can’t rely on the excuse of giving chances to youngsters and the team going through a transition phase.
“Commentators like Ian Chappell already suggest that Australia should stop inviting Pakistan due to our past performances Down Under. Another defeat in Australia will not be acceptable to fans and will take Pakistan cricket further down.”
Pakistan’s tour of Australia will consist of three Twenty20 Internationals from November 3 to 8, and two Tests from November 21 to December 3.
