Australia has the Last Laugh Against Pakistan in 2nd ODI 2009

(This entry was originally published on Friday, April 24th, 2009)

The match took place at the same stadium like the 1st ODI on Wednesday. In the first ODI, Pakistan thrashed Australia by 4 wickets and the funny thing is that today, Australia did the same thing- won by 4 wickets. So, the series is evenly poised now and we are eagerly waiting for the 3rd match.

It was Friday and the holiday for the people in Dubai. So, the match was a sell out and many expatriate Pakistani workers came to enjoy it. Most of them returned home with a sad heart because their favorite team lost.

Pakistan batted first and could score 207 runs and got all out. 207 was perhaps a small total for Australian players who were eager to get some kind of revenge. Andrew Symonds and Michael Clarke were the heroes for them. Symonds got half century and Clarke played a very responsible innings and stayed in the crease for a long time. Pakistani bowlers could not put any kind of pressure on the opponents. This is the thing that made the difference between the two teams in the end. Australian bowlers bowled well and got good support from the fielders.

Now, let us see what happens in the third ODI match.
