With the defeat in the Multan Test, Pakistan lost the Test series against England. This is his second consecutive Test series defeat on home soil this year.
Babar Azam’s team has failed to win the Test at home.
Another Test match, another Test series and same result – defeat. This is the current situation of the Pakistan cricket team under the captaincy of Babar Azam. After facing defeat in Rawalpindi Test against England Pakistan Got failure in Multan test also. In this way, the three-match series also got out of his hands even before one match. Due to this defeat, questions are being raised on Pakistan because it has been defeated in another Test series on its own land. At the same time, after this defeat of Pakistan, suddenly discussions started about Indian cricket team and Virat Kohli. Now the question is why?
Before telling about this, it is necessary to tell about this year’s test record of Pakistan on home ground. This year, Pakistan has played a total of 5 Test matches at home so far. Out of this, the first three were against Australia, while two tests were against England. None of these tests went in favor of Pakistan. The first two Tests against Australia were draws, while he was defeated in the last Test. After this, England defeated him in two consecutive Test matches.
Why India in discussion?
That is, in total, from March (vs Australia) to December (vs England), Pakistan played 5 Tests in their own grounds, in their favorite conditions, but in this also they lost 3 Test matches, that too consecutively. This is the first time since 1959, when Pakistan got defeated in three consecutive Tests at home.
Due to such condition of Pakistan within just 9 months, cricket fans started discussing about Indian team and Virat Kohli. Behind this are the shocking statistics, which show how the Indian team has remained at the top of Test cricket at home for the last decade and no one has been able to challenge it. statistics show,
- Pakistan has lost 3 consecutive Tests at home in 9 months, while India has not lost 3 Tests at home since 2012 till now, ie in 10 years. India has got defeat in only 2 matches.
- India has played 15 Test series at home since 2013 and won all 15 series, which is the record for most consecutive Test series wins at home.
- On the other hand, Pakistan lost two series in just 9 months. Not only this, out of the 15 Test series that India played during this period, 11 were captained by Virat Kohli and apparently India was successful in all of them.
India have not lost THREE Tests on home soil since December 2012. Pakistan have now lost three at home in six months. #PAKvENG

Teams strong at home, only Pakistan weak
Such a period, when most of the teams are very strong at their home or are successful in winning at least some matches, such plight of Pakistan within a year is disturbing for their fans. A few months ago, Sri Lanka also made a comeback after losing the first Test to Australia and defeated them in the second Test. At the same time, after losing one test from Pakistan, he won the next one. On the other hand, a relatively weak Test team like the West Indies also defeated England in the Test series at their home earlier this year.
