Dubai: Live updates from the 2nd ODI between Australia and Pakistan being played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Toss: Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and he has decided to bat first.
Nothing has worked far for Pakistan in the series. After losing the lone T20 international by six wickets, they lost the first ODI match by a huge margin of 93 runs. While David Warner was the hero for the Aussies in the T20 outing, Steven Smith hit his maiden ODI ton in the first match to flatten Pakistan.
Pakistan have failed to make any use of the pitch in Dubai. Their bowling attack has looked quite mediocre in the absence of Saeed Ajmal, and the challenge ahead of Misbah would be to motivate the bowlers to do well.
Australia, on the other hand, would be looking to continue their dominance. Their bowlers and batsmen are in good form and George Bailey would want his boys to extend the lead to 2-0.
