ROTTERDAM: Pakistan have to chase a target of 187-Run target set by the host Netherlands in the second one-day-international of three ODI series
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan is leading the series by1-0.
Pakistan have made no changes to the side after winning the first ODI on August 16, while the hosts are also unchanged for the match at the VOC Cricket Club outside the Dutch harbour city.
After winning the toss and opting to bat first, the Netherlands lost quick three wickets of Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, and Wesley Barresi, in under 10 runs.
However, Bas de Leede (89) and Tom Cooper (66) hit half-centuries to keep their team’s hopes alive of achieving a defendable total as they managed to lead the Netherlands to 186 for all out.
Leede was the last one to be bowled out as the Pakistani bowlers managed to send all Netherland batters back to the pavilion with nearly six overs in hand.
Mohammad Nawaz and Haris Rauf were the leading wicket-takers as they bagged three each, followed by Naseem Shah who picked up two. Mohammad Wasim and Shadab Khan took a wicket each.
Pakistan had won the first ODI against the Netherlands, the second match is underway, while the third fixture will take place on August 20 — two days from now.
