Pakistan vs Afghanistan 2nd ODI which is schedule on Thursday at the Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium in Hambantota.

The bowlers did well to limit the Pakistanis to a modest total. The spinners made the most of the turning surface, picking up as many as 8 wickets.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the pick of the lot with 3 wickets, while Nabi and Rashid Khan picked up 2 wickets each. The conditions were helpful for the spinners but there is no denying the fact they attacked the stumps consistently and bowled excellent lengths. 

Despite putting up a mediocre batting performance with the bat, Pakistan managed to turn things around with the ball to gain a lead in the series.

Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam had a rare off-day at the office as they were dismissed within the first two overs of the match. The duo are the top two run-getters for Pakistan in this calendar year and will hope to bounce back in this match. Imam Ul-Haq played a gritty innings, scoring 61 runs even as wickets continued to fall at regular intervals at the other end.

Mohammad Rizwan, Agha Salma, Shadab Khan, and Iftikhar Ahmed make up the middle order and will need to play better. They have been inconsistent, particularly in the 50-over format and need to adjust their tempo to the longer time frame available.
