Player Of The Match
That will do it. Pretty much a carbon copy of the first game. Eight wicket win for Australia, Aaron Finch hundred, and a Pakistan maiden centurion in vain. The hosts not good enough with the ball once again, and they didn't have the firepower with the bat either. Usman Khawaja combined with Finch at the top to knock the stuffing out of the hosts, and it was all one way traffic once they got going. Another dominant display from the Aussies to see them go 2-0 up with three more to play. The next one is on Wednesday. Will the visitors seal the series? Or can Pakistan keep it alive?.
