ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 2nd ODI Match, Pakistan tour of England, 2021.
England will take on Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London.
ENG vs PAK 2nd ODI Match Preview
England started the series with an inexperienced and a new set of players, but they remain undefeated as they won their first match against a strong team like Pakistan. They won the game comfortably by nine wickets. Both Dawid Malan and Zak Crawley scored unbeaten fifties and took the team to victory.
The bowlers performed exceptionally well as they did not allow the opposition to score runs and picked up wickets regularly. As expected, Saqib Mahmood outperformed and picked up a four-for. Mathew Parkinson and Craig Overton managed to pick up two wickets each. Gregory picked up a wicket. England would be high on confidence after the win and hope to continue the momentum and win the second match and thus seal the series.
Pakistan started as the favourites in this tour as everyone expected that they would easily defeat the inexperienced England team. Still, the tables turned around, and the pressure is now on them to win the second match. The batting unit put up a disastrous form which resulted in them being all-out for just 141 runs. Only Fakhar Zaman and Shadab Khan batted decently and tried to stop the chaos of falling wickets.
The bowlers performed even more poorly than the batsmen as they struggled to pick up wickets and leaked many runs. Shaheen Afridi managed to pick up a wicket. Pakistan needs to improve the team’s overall performance and come back stronger as they might have understood by now that it is not easy to win against this new England team.
