Author’s pick:

Pakistan showed their dominance ahead of New Zealand series despite the fact that this was a weaker Aussie side in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner who are serving ban. The series win could be a breakthrough sign for Pakistan to play positive cricket in upcoming matches (all formats of the game).
