Former Pakistan batsman Javed Miandad said that beating Australia will be a tough task for the Pakistan team. He also advised captain Misbah ul-Haq to not repeat the mistakes they made in the series against Sri Lanka.

“Don’t repeat the mistakes that were done in Sri Lanka series. Our batsmen need to stick to the crease and at least score 50s.”, Miandad told APP.

“Afridi needs to work hard on his form and prove he is the right man for the job. He should focus on his batting especially and on how to improve it,”, he added.

Pakistan will face Australia in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), two Tests and an only Twenty 20 International (T20I) in UAE starting October 5.
