List of Australia Test cricket records against Pakistan

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

This is a list of Australian Test cricket records against Pakistan. It is based on the List of Australia Test cricket records, but concentrates solely on records dealing with the Australian Test cricket team, and any cricketers who have played for that team, against the Pakistan Test cricket team. Australia played its first recognised Test cricket match against Pakistan in October 1956, and the records listed here date from that time.

Listing criteria[edit]

In general the top ten are listed in each category (except when there is a tie for the last place among the ten, when all the tied record holders are noted).

Listing notation[edit]

  • (300) indicates that a team scored 300 runs and was all out, either by losing all ten wickets or by having one or more batsmen unable to bat and losing the remaining wickets.
