Setting Up the Pakistan Tour of Australia 2023

The tour is set to commence on 14th December at Perth Stadium, which will be the first time Pakistan plays a Test match at this venue. The highly anticipated Boxing Day Test will take place at the renowned Melbourne Cricket Ground from 26th to 30th December.

The tour will conclude with the third and final match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 3rd January 2024. Pakistan has previously played 10 Tests at the MCG and eight at the SCG, winning two matches at each of these iconic venues.

Before the Pakistan Tour of Australia 2023 series begins, Pakistan will engage in a four-day warm-up match to adapt to the conditions in Australia. This upcoming tour will mark the third Test tour of Australia for Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam.

The talented batsman had previously visited Australia in December 2016, led by captain Misbah-ul-Haq, and in November 2019, when Azhar Ali held the captaincy. During the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan embarked on their most recent tour to Australia, where they reached the finals of the tournament.
