ENG vs PAK, 2nd ODI

Match Preview

England will play against Pakistan in the 2nd ODI Match at Lord’s, London on 10 July 2021. Pakistan’s batters would want to forget the last game and start afresh in the 2nd ODI. Fakhar Zaman was the only positive thing the other day. England batters did not have much to do in the last game as they were chasing a small target. Although England have an inexperienced side, the last game indicated that the team is here to win. Pakistan still has a good chance to turn things around.
