Pakistan vs. England 2nd ODI Review

There were some positives to take from the Rose Bowl during the 2nd One Day International –Lords. A leading from the front innings by Azhar Ali, positive innings from Babar Azam and Sarfaraz Ahmed.

But, yet again the catching was appalling. England has been playing a fine brand of limited overs cricket, and especially at home, their recent form is formidable. Pakistan looked flat on the field for the majority of the duration before rain intervened.

Supporters of the team will understand, that Pakistan’s ODI unit is under transformation with all but the senior players vacating their seats for the new upstarts, patience will be the key.

There was something amiss in their bowling, again it seems that Amir will either have to get bowled or LBW to throughout the series as the catching is rubbish, with Wahab Riaz and Umar Gul, Pakistan lack new ball prowess.

Coming back to the ground itself, England has a less than impressive win-loss record here, having lost 26 of the 51 matches played here. The one thing Pakistan can be counting on is a sense of familiarity. They lead England 4-3 at Lords.

Foresee two changes, Umar Gul and Nawaz will be benched and Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali to be drafted back in. The wickets in England have not been doing anything this summer, but Lords does usually keep its reputation of being a two-paced track early in the morning, only to be changed to a belter come 2nd shift. It’s a winning toss, bowl first wicket.
