The 2nd match of the ODI series between Pakistan and Australia will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 31st March 2022. Even though Australia were not having full squad strength due to covid concerns, Pakistan couldn’t able to take advantage of the golden opportunity and lost the first match by a huge margin.

Australian opener Travis Head and middle-order batsman; Ben McDermott have played brilliant knocks in the first match of the series and are looking in good touch ahead of the 2nd ODI. Australia are still suffering injury issues and they will try to maintain the same squad in the 2nd ODI as well.

Pakistan on the other side will try to improvise their plans well on the ground when they play against the mighty Aussies in the 2nd match. This match will be important for hosts if they want to save the ODI series after losing the Test series at home.

Pakistan Preview

Pakistan have lost the first match of the ODI series against Australia by a margin of 88 runs. Now hosts will play against Aussies in the next match which will be played on 31st March. Pakistan needs to win this match to continue its efforts of winning the series against Australia.

Pakistan's captain invited the Australian unit to bat first in the opener of the ODI series. Pakistan's bowling unit failed to deliver an early breakthrough in the innings and Aussie openers have set up a 110 runs stand for the 1st wicket. Bowlers couldn’t succeed to break partnerships throughout the inning.

Only Haris Rauf (2 wickets for 44 runs in 8 overs) and Zahid Mahmood (2 wickets for 59 runs in 10 overs), were on the mark and helped the team to restrict opponents to 313 runs. While chasing the target, Pakistan lost the first wicket of Fakhar Zaman early in the 5th over.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be sunny on a matchday with temperatures ranging between 36°C and 19°C. This pitch has always favored bowlers and the trend has continued in the 1st match as well.  It will be a tough wicket to bat on. 

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 5 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. 

Australia have shown dominance in the 1st ODI of the series. Despite covid and injury concerns, they have built a balanced squad. On the other side, Pakistan’s batters failed to deliver in the first match and Australian bowlers took advantage of that situation. Australia will be the favorite in the 2nd match as well after thrashing Pakistan in the first.
 

We predict that Australia will defeat Pakistan.
