PAK VS WI | Pakistan set for high total in second ODI against West Indies
After winning the toss for Friday’s second one-day international, Pakistan under Babar Azam, is poised to offer the West Indies a huge total at the Multan Cricket Stadium (MCS). Imam-ul-Haq scored 72 runs before he was sent home. Captain Azam leads from the front with a half-century, much like he did in the previous match. At 17 runs, the squad lost Fakhar Zaman, but Imam and Babar fought back to produce a respectable total. Azam’s team won the initial match by five wickets because of Khushdil Shah’s late fireworks on Wednesday.
For their part, the visitors scored 305 in their innings before being bowled out in their final over by the green jerseys. To his credit, Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was on fire, scoring his 17th ODI century and breaking numerous more records. Khushdil was named player of the match. But the match’s player of the match award went to him because of Khushdil’s role in the team’s victory.
The WI’s captain, Nicholas Pooran, said at the closing ceremony that his young team performed excellently despite the heat. Plus, the fact that they were up against the best team in the world. Although he had expressed confidence in the team’s overall performance, he had also stressed that winning and losing were both parts of the game. A large audience had gathered anticipation of Babar and his teammates defeating the West Indies team captained by Nicholas and taking the inaugural match.
They did just that. Both the Pakistani and the opposition teams had large crowds cheering them on. The absence of batter Mohammad Haris from the last match has created selection headaches. According to the experts, he should have been starting to enhance his self-confidence.
