Australia Preview

Australia have lost the 2nd ODI of the bilateral series by 6 wickets after a poor bowling display while defending the target. They will now try to clinch the last match of the series which will help them to win the series as well. 

Australian batters showed a brilliant batting display after asking to bat first in the last ODI. Though captain Aaron Finch departed on a golden duck, Travis Head (89 runs from 70 balls) and Ben McDermott (104 runs from 108 balls) had batted superbly to settle down the inning in the middle overs.  Ben McDermott scored his maiden ODI ton and helped his team to put up 348 runs on the board.

After a good display of batting, it was the duty of Australian bowlers to restrict opponents as they had huge runs to save. But Australia’s bowling unit couldn’t manage to take wickets at a regular interval of time during Pakistan’s chase. Only Adam Zampa had picked up 2 wickets for 71 runs in his spell of 10 overs.

Australia have won the 1st match of the series because of their bowling unit but failed to continue that streak in the 2nd match. They will now try to work on their bowling issues ahead of the 3rd ODI which will be played at Gaddafi Stadium on 2nd April 2022.

Key Players: Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Adam Zampa, Nathon Ellis.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Marnus Labuschagne, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Adam Zampa, Sean Abbott, Nathon Ellis, Mitchell Swepson.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be sunny on a matchday with temperatures ranging between 38°C and 22°C. This pitch has always favored bowlers and the trend has continued in the 1st match as well. But 2nd match has completely dominated by the batters. Though it is a tough wicket to bat on, batters batted well in the 2nd match. 

Venue Details

The venue for this match will be Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The stadium has modern floodlights and can accommodate nearly 65,000 spectators.

Toss: To Bat

Toss will be a crucial factor in the match results. From the last 5 matches played on this ground the team who have opted to bat first won 4 times. The team batting first at this venue will get the advantage of the pitch and can put the opponent team under pressure for the second innings. But things got reversed in the last match and batters had dominated the game in the 2nd inning as well.

Pakistan have played some outstanding cricket in the 2nd ODI match to level the series. They have utilized their batting strength and now have momentum with them hed of the last ODI match. On the other side, after displaying a good batting performance, Australia's bowlers failed to restrict runs of the bowl. The Bowling unit was not on the mark in the last match and Pakistan took advantage of that to clinch the game. By looking at the current form of both unit, Pakistan have an edge over Australia in the last match.

 

We predict that Pakistan will defeat Australia.
