Australia Tour of Pakistan, 2022 – Pakistan vs Australia – 2nd Test Match Prediction

Pakistan and Australia will meet in the second Test of the series in Karachi, following a batsmen dominance in the first. Pakistan’s batsmen batted nearly 240 overs in the first match, whereas the Australian batting unit batted 140 overs in the Rawalpindi Test, which helped to turn the match into a draw.

This second Test match, which will be held at the National Stadium in Karachi from the 12th to the 16th of March, will be crucial for both teams in terms of claiming points for the ICC Test Championship. In this second match, the Australian team is likely to include another spinner in order to put more pressure on Pakistan’s batting unit, whereas Pakistan will try to attack with their pace attack.

The ICC declared the first Test match pitch to be below-average, so this game in Karachi has all eyes on it after the first game ended in a draw. Both teams have a strong bowling unit, which they will try to use in the second game of the three-match Test series.

The game between the two teams will take place on March 12th, 2022 at National Stadium in Karachi.

Pakistan’s batsmen put on an extraordinary batting display in the first Test match, which ended in a draw. The team will now face visitors in the second game of the series in Karachi, where they will try to maintain their momentum.

After winning the toss in the first Test, Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, chose to bat first. Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique, Pakistan’s openers, had added 105 runs for the first wicket before Abdullah Shafique departed on 45 runs. Azar Ali, who came in as a one-down batsman, played a brilliant 185-run knock alongside Imam-ul-Haq, who scored two hundreds (157 and 111*) in two innings.

After 162 overs, Pakistan declared their first inning on 476-4 and invited Australia to bat. Nauman Ali bowled brilliantly for Australia in the first inning, taking 6 wickets for 107 runs in 38 overs to dismantle their innings. Pakistan batted again after taking a 17-run lead. Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq combined for 136 runs in the second inning while opening.

The match ended in a tie at the end of the fifth day. Pakistan’s batsmen demonstrated their patience and perseverance while batting against Australia’s pace attack in the first test match.

Australia (Match Odds – 2.75)

While responding to Pakistan in the first test match, the Australian team put on a strong batting display. Following a draw in the first game, visitors are hoping to win the second game of the series, which will be played at the National Stadium in Karachi between March 12th and 16th, 2022.

While bowling first after losing the toss in the first match, Australian bowlers attempted to put pressure on the hosts’ batting unit, but they were unable to do so on Rawalpindi’s flat pitch. The Australian team used nine bowlers to try for a breakthrough, but Pakistan declared on 476 runs.

The Australian batsmen had gotten off to a good start in the first inning. Both openers, David Warner (68 runs off 114 balls) and Usman Khawaja (97 runs off 159 balls), appeared to be in good form as they set up a 156-run stand for the first wicket. Marnus Labuschangne, the ICC World No. 1 batsman, demonstrated his abilities in the first inning, scoring 90 runs in 158 balls. After 140 overs in the first inning, the Australian team was bowled out for 459 runs.

The Australian bowling unit bowled 77 overs again in the second innings but failed to get a wicket, and the match was declared a draw at the end of the fifth day. Australia will use two spinners and three pacers in the Karachi test to try to execute their plans well. For visitors, this series is historic, and they will try to win the second match of this series in Karachi.
