2nd ODI: A must win game for Pakistan

DUBAI: The second One Day International (ODI) between Pakistan and Australia will be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday, ARY News reported.

Speaking in the pre-match conference today skipper of Pakistan Misbah-ul-Haq siad national cricket team is committed to made comeback in the series. He said players are working hard and will enter in the ground with complete preparation.

He said one good performance can help team to gain back the lost confidence.

Misbah said all the coaches working together to sort out batting flaws.

During the ongoing tour, Pakistan batsmen looked rusty, their shot selection has been poor and in their need to play freely they have misread match situations. The top order is not contributing well as their opening stand has contributed 13 and 9 so far on this tour.

Talking about Mohammad Hafeez, Misbah said the balance of team has been disturbed because of his absence.

Sohaib Maqsood is likely to replace Asad Shafique while two other choices are Umar Amin, who averages less than 20 and Sami Aslam, an uncapped 18-year old.

Australia , on the other hand, is a much confident side. Their body language has been aggressive and both their bowlers and batsmen have adapted to the slow, turning pitches in UAE well.
