PAK vs NZ Live Score 2nd ODI, Pakistan vs New Zealand Live Score, 2nd ODI, 2023. On Wednesday,11th of January, Pakistan will lock horns with New Zealand in the 2nd ODI at the National Stadium in Karachi.
Pakistan played an ODI cricket after five months and ended up on the winning side. Riding on Naseem Shah’s fifer and a superb collective effort from the batters, Pakistan recorded an easy six-wicket victory over their counterparts in the first game.
While their spin twins Usama Mir and Mohammad Nawaz were brilliant, Mohammad Wasim Jr scalped the crucial breakthroughs as well. However, the hosts would like better returns from Haris Rauf, who went wicketless in the first match, conceding 54 runs in his eight-over spell. Meanwhile, all the batters, barring Imam-ul-Haq, had dream outings and would hope to replicate something similar in this clash.
Babar Azam will be leading the team, and Shan Masood will be seen as his deputy. Haris Rauf, who was not a part of the Test team, is available for selection. However, the absence of Shadab Khan and Shaheen Afridi will be something Pakistan will have to deal with.
On the other hand, New Zealand performed in patches, which led to their downfall in the first game. Although they were saved by their lower middle-order batters Tom Latham, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner, the visitors would like better performances from Devon Conway, Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell. Similarly, bowlers, barring Michael Bracewell, would like to perform impactfully in this game.
