Australia face Pakistan next

Australia will face Pakistan in another three match Test series after seeing off the West Indies in the first series of the summer.

The first series ended up being very interesting after a less than competitive first Test at the Gabba which ended after three days.

I was surprised to see the Windies turnaround in the Adelaide and Perth Tests where the Windies were quite good and I think they had a good chance of the winning the third Test.

But Australia did well especially in bowling to make sure they won the series 2-nil. Given the way the series was going it would have interesting to see what could have happened in the fourth Test.

Unfortunately the Test series could easily be remembered for indiscipline in both the Aussies and Windies ranks and lets that's the last we will see of that this summer.

That brings to the three Test series against Pakistan which start in three days time at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Pakistan has finished a tour of New Zealand where they drew the series 1-1 after a draw in Napier in the last Test.

The third and last Test will be at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart, Tasmania and its good to see a Test match being played in Tasmania.
