England vs Pakistan 2nd ODI Tips
The 2nd ODI match of the 5 match ODI series will be played on the 27th of August at Lord’s, London. The match will start at 10:30am (Local) / 2:30pm (Pakistan time). The mach will be broadcast on PTV Sports in Pakistan and on Sky Sports in the UK.
England won the first ODI comfortably by chasing down the revised target in that weather-hit match. Jason Roy, who was awarded the man of the match award and Adil Rashid made telling contributions for the side which led to their win. And coming against a team ranked down the ICC World Rankings, it wasn’t a surprising result.
Pakistan looked out of steam with the bat and ball and while dragged their way to score 260/6 in the first ODI, that was never going to be enough on a flat surface. Their problem was they did not accelerate even in the final 10 overs of the match and that’s where England were able to come up on top.
One can expect Pakistan to come back strong here but to do that they will need someone other than just their captain Azhar Ali to score runs & pick up a lot more wickets early in the innings.
Will Umar Gul come good with the ball in the second ODI? Can someone help Azhar with hit a quick-fire cameo? We will soon find out, come the second game.
