Due to the national team’s impending tour of Pakistan, Usman Khawaja, Australia’s prolific middle-order batsman, is set to miss the birth of his second kid. Next month, Australia will visit Pakistan for three Tests, as many ODIs, and a one-off T2oI.
Despite the impending birth of his second kid, the 35-year-old confessed that he is looking forward to returning to his birthplace with the Australian national team. He stated that playing cricket for Australia has always been a passion for him and that the forthcoming tour will be extremely significant for him because it will be the first time he wears the Australian jersey in his birth nation.
Khawaja mentioned that his wife understands how important cricket is to him and is very supportive.
“She’s a great listener. She knows how much I enjoy cricket and how important it is to me. She’s really supportive of it, and she understands I do everything I can to help her. It will take a lot of effort for me to return. “For Australia, it’s Test cricket,” Khawaja added.
“I was born there (Pakistan), therefore going there will be a pleasant, memorable experience.” “I believe it will be beneficial to Australian cricket as well,” he continued.
Khawaja has been picked in a strong 18-man Australian Test squad, which will be captained by Pat Cummins, the team’s newly appointed captain. Khawaja was an important part of Australia’s recent Ash’s success. As Australia won the historic series 4-0, he struck two back-to-back hundreds. In the forthcoming historic tour, Australia will be hoping that Khawaja maintains his strong form.
The first Test between the two nations will take place at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on March 4th.
