Former Australia paceman Jason Gillespie on Saturday said that Australia’s December series against Pakistan will be a ‘tough’ one for both teams.

Australia will host Pakistan for a three-Test and five-ODI series starting from December 15. Before that, Pakistan will be touring New Zealand for a two-match Test series starting from November 17.

When asked what does the 41-year-old think about Pakistan’s impending performance against the Kangaroos, Gillespie said: “Pak [is] a very good side. [It’s] going to be a tough series.”



Australia are currently playing South Africa in the second of the three-match Test series. The visitors are 1-0 up in the series with a 177-run win at Perth.
