The Men in Green were completely outplayed in all departments by the Aussies in the first Test at the Gabba
Pakistan’s Test skipper Azhar Ali lamented the lack of Test matches played by the Men in Green in Australia, heading into their second and last Test against the home side at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
The Men in Green were completely outplayed in all departments by the Aussies in the first Test at the Gabba in Brisbane. Ali claimed that playing more Tests would give the side the opportunity to adapt to different conditions.
"Obviously we always love to play more Tests," Ali was quoted as saying by 7news.com.au. "As the Pakistan team, we don't play too many Tests. That's not good for any team. If we play more Tests, we'll have a better chance to even adjust to different conditions. The last time we played three Tests here, and if you see our batsmen scored hundreds in all Tests. This is one country where you can score big runs. And if you get, here early and get more Tests it will be better."

Pakistan’s bowling coach Waqar Younis echoed similar sentiments and was of the opinion that the Men in Green needed more matches to bounce back from a bad performance.
"I feel that there should be more Tests too," said Younis. "Two Tests is very difficult, if you lose one Test it's hard to come back. It should be at least 3 or 4 Tests and of course you need more time to acclimatise."
