The second One Day International (ODI) match between Pakistan and Afghanistan is set to take place at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium. The match is part of a three-match series and will commence at 2:30 p.m. Pakistan Time on August 24, 2023.
This series is not just another cricket encounter but holds significant importance for both teams. For Afghanistan, it serves as a testing ground for their batting unit against a world-class bowling attack, ahead of upcoming mega tournaments. On the other hand, Pakistan, which currently holds the second spot in the ODI rankings, has a chance to claim the top position if they manage to win the remaining two matches.
In the first match of the series, Pakistan took a 1-0 lead, thanks to an impressive performance by their pacers who took eight wickets while defending a total of 201 runs. Despite some struggles against the spinners, the Pakistani batting unit managed to post a total above 200, with notable contributions from Imam-ul-Haq, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Shadab Khan. This series also presents an opportunity for the Babar Azam-led batting unit to refine its approach against spinners, especially with the Asia Cup and World Cup 2023 on the horizon.
The second ODI between Pakistan and Afghanistan will be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium at 2:30 p.m. Pakistan time.
