The second ODI between England and Pakistan is set to take place at Lord’s in London on Saturday.
Pakistan, they were dealt a reality check in Cardiff with none of their batsmen, barring Fakhar Zaman, getting runs. Even with the ball, Pakistan couldn’t muster a fight. However, the visitors are well and truly capable of flipping the script, with the likes of Babar Azam and Hasan Ali coming off a successful PSL season.
For England Saqib Mahmood and Zak Crawley starred for the home side as they completed a nine-wicket win over the Asian giants. With momentum on their side, England will be looking to seal a series win in the second fixture.
