Watch Pakistan vs West Indies 2nd ODI Live Scorecard at Providence, Apr 9, 2017 Hello everyone and welcome to our coverage of the second ODI from Providence in Guyana. There was a barnstorming finish to the opening match as Jason Mohammed stole the game away from Pakistan a tremendous display. It was the first time West Indies had chase 300+ to win an ODI. Can Pakistan hit back to level the series or will West Indies seal it with a match to spare? I’m Andrew McGlashan and along with Andrew Miller will bring you all the action. The toss will happen in half an hour, so to set the scene here is Danyal Rasool’s preview.
Danish: “Pakistan were pretty complacent with their approach while defending 308 in the first game, they won the game in their own minds at 35th over of the Windies innings. They should remember the game is only won when it is finished.”
West Indies have won the toss and will bowl first
Noman Tahir: “The great Pakistan teams of old had super star batsmen (Miandad, Saeed Anwar, Inzi); super star all-rounders (Imran Khan, Shahid Afridi, Abdur Razzaq); and super star bowlers (Wasim, Waqar, Shoaib). This team is devoid of true quality – just mediocre journeymen. ”
There was more significant news out of Pakistan yesterday with Younis Khan confirming he will follow Misbah-ul-Haq into retirement after the Test series against West Indies. Osman Samiuddin reflects on the end of batting era.
Qamar: “I am going to give nickname to Misbah and Younis. #Misyou. Definitely we all will miss you.”
West Indies will barely have recovered from the high of a record-breaking win in the first ODI against Pakistan when they go at it again in the second game on Sunday. It had looked every inch the average game you would expect against a depleted West Indies side before lesser-known Jason Mohammed dismantled Pakistan’s fabled fast-bowling attack, sealing a chase of 309 with an over to spare. As a result, they prepare for the second game in the knowledge that they have the opportunity to wrap up a long-awaited series win against a top side.
