The 34-year-old believed that the series provide everyone an opportunity and revealed that the key to a successful tour would be playing attacking cricket.
“Everyone has an opportunity now. We have recently been playing very good Twenty20 (T20) cricket. We have a chance again to play in Australia and I think if we play attacking cricket than we will be successful,” he said.
Wahab was particularly excited about the bowling attack which he believed comprised of a very good mix of youth and experience.
“If we talk about the bowling attack, fast-bowling in particular, there is a very good mix and match of experience and youth so I think this is an opportunity for all of us to deliver a win for Pakistan,” he said.
