Australia beat Pakistan by eight wickets in the second game of the five-match ODI series at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday. 

Electing to bat first, Pakistan didn’t have the start they would have wanted as opener Imam-ul-Haq Was back in the pavilion in the first over. The side lost both of their openers on the score of 35 runs.

Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Sohail put on a 52-run partnership before the latter was dismissed for 34. Umar Akmal was dismissed cheaply for 16.

The 127-run partnership between skipper Shoaib Malik and wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan proved to be vital for Pakistan. Malik made 60 off 61 deliveries while Rizwan was the top-scorer for his team with 115 off 126 deliveries.

The Men in Green finished their innings at the score of 284-7 in 20 overs.

Australian openers Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja dominated the run-chase as they posted the highest first-wicket partnership at Sharjah with their 209-run stand. The side hammered the Pakistani bowlers to all parts of the grounds.

Usman Khawaja was the first to be dismissed as he went back to the pavilion after scoring 88 runs.

Glenn Maxwell came onto bat and he contributed 19 off 15 deliveries with two sixes to his name.

Despite Australia’s momentum slowing down after Maxwell’s dismissal, Finch went on to score 153 off 143 deliveries — thus taking his side to another comprehensive win.

Kangaroos have a commanding 2-0 lead over the Men in Green in the series.
