10 Tests, 30 months.
That is how long it has been since Pakistan has won a test match.
I don't think that I have ever waited longer than this in my lifetime for Pakistan to win a test match.
I'm not sure but maybe this is also the longest drought in Pakistan's test cricket history.
And I believe its about time Pakistan bloody well ends it!
Out of the 7 days of cricket played during this test series against Sri Lanka, Pakistan have had the upper hand on 4.
In a few hours, if they can do that continiously for a few days, they will manage to close and end this prolonged period of no test wins.
Sri Lanka will not be easy though.
Their batsmen will be looking to put in better performances; Chaminda Vaas, in his last test, will want to go out on a high; and the entire team would want to give a fitting farewell to Vaas.
The Lankans are not going to be complacent. They want a sweep.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will have to rise to the occasion.
Can they do it or will we witness yet another collapse?
If you take a look at their last 3 innings they have managed 8-46, 10-90, and 9-35.
They surely can't do worse than this!
If they do then Pakistan will experience their first ever clean sweep at the hands of any team that is not Australia or South Africa.
