LIVE: Aussies bowled first in second ODI


Australia lost its first ball in the second ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah and will fight against the bowl.

Aaron Finch's side remained unchanged from the victory in the opening series on Friday, while Pakistan was first introduced by the exciting teenage fast Mohammad Hasnain.

After their comfortable eight-wicket victory in the same place, Captain Finch said saturation-shaped batsmen in the Aussie team is a welcome luxury as the World Cup approaches.

"This is a huge situation in order to be able to handle these heavy calls, instead of having the guys that we should fill," Finch said.

"We have men who raise their hands all the time, which is really positive."

Finch, Marsh Aussies guide to ODI wins

In an increasingly highly rated world of cricket with limited tweaks, Australian fans who woke up Saturday with the result, could decide that 281 will be in the hunt for a course.

But this type of goal – not to mention a slow, unknown playground – has aggravated an Australian heavyweight 50-fold dress in recent years.

Before the recent success in India, in previous 11 attempts only in one of the scales exceeded 200 points.

Now that in the last two weeks, when they gathered 359 against India in Mohali, they withdrew two of the five biggest ODIs in Asia, the Australians seem to have great opportunities.
