Pakistan will remain a dangerous side to all teams," Pakistan's most successful Test captain said.Pakistan have played three matches till now. They lost to West Indies but managed to defeat England, while their game against Sri Lanka was washed out due to rain. They will next play Australia in Taunton on Wednesday.
