Pakistan close to an unwanted record in Australia

Batting against Australia has never been an easy task and when it comes to playing them in their own den, the difficulty level doubles. Pakistan would gladly endorse this notion as they have traditionally struggled down under. After playing 36 Tests in Australia, the boys in green came out victorious in only 4 instances.

Currently, the visitors are on a 13-game losing streak, which dates back to 1999. Despite visiting Australia with impressive squads, Pakistan under-performed to swell their shoddy record. With a defeat in the first of the two-game Test series, Pakistan equaled the record of most consecutive losses in the red-ball cricket in one country. Bangladesh also recorded 13 straight losses at their own land from years 2001 to 2004.

If Pakistan fails to counter hosts in the ongoing Test match in Adelaide, then they would bag the aforementioned unwanted record. Considering the conditions of both the units, it doesn’t look like an unlikely phenomenon. Moreover, the Adelaide game being a day-night Test affair adds to the difficulty of the green team.
