Australia soundingly defeated Pakistan in the first test of the Pakistan Tour of Australia 2023-24. It was an excellent team performance that put Pakistan into the backfoot right from Day 1. Pakistan were lacking an in-form batter who could hold one end and that is where Australia took the game and are now leading the series 1-0.

Like they are ruling ODI and T20I rankings, India are number 1 team in the red ball format too. They have been consistent but one bad performance takes all the credit away from them. India were too good in the red ball format for the past three years as they have played both finals of the World Test Championship but both times were in the losing corner at the end.
