Pakistan Army Cricket Team Tours Australia
Pakistan Army cricket team toured Australia to play a bilateral cricket series against their counterpart and other services teams. Though primary objective of the tour was to further cement good relations between the two armies, which remained a focus for all team members, but display of good cricketing skills by Pakistan Army team, especially in Australian environment remained an area of focus. Pakistan Army cricket team not only won bilateral T-20 series against Australian Army, 3-0, but also whitewashed one day and T-20 championships against the three Australian services teams. Australian Army Chief also witnessed one day match played between both Army teams. Australian Army team although charged up with his presence put up a better show, but failed to make any difference.
Pakistani diaspora who came to witness the matches felt great pleasure on this achievement. It may be mentioned that Pakistan Army cricket team was invited to play against services teams for the first time. Only New Zealand, England and South African Army teams shared cricket turf with services teams before Pakistan.
