The PAK vs AUS second Test will be played in Melbourne from December 26-30. This test match is famously known as the Boxing Day Test match and is one of the most anticipated Test matches in the Australian cricket calendar.
Australia thrashed Pakistan by 360 runs in the first Test. They scored 487 batting first and bowled out Pakistan for 271 and 89 in the two innings. David Warner who scored a century in the first Test is playing his penultimate Test match of his career. Pat Cummins, on the other hand, has had a fabulous year as captain that capped off recently with a record IPL deal with Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The historic MCG is all set to witness a historic Test match with the crowd rooting behind the home side. The Aussies are well placed to deliver another dominating performance against Pakistan who are still searching for their first Test win in Australia.
The Pakistan bowling attack was criticized for not being able to adjust to the conditions. After a below-par performance in the first Test, they will need to come back very well to win the second Test and take it to the decider. The second Test should see a few changes in the Pakistan playing XI, especially in the bowling attack.
