After tasting glory in 1st ODI, Pakistan U-19 lads would be willing to stay under their winning streak when they would lock horns in the 2nd ODI encounter against South Africa U19 at City Oval, Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.
It was Haider Ali and Abbas Afridi who took some responsibility with the bat and slammed 60 and 53 runs respectively to engrave a decent amount of target on the scoreboard.
In the reply, the top order African batsmen played sensibly and made the chase slightly smooth for the middle order, but no batsmen could find himself stable on the pitch and kept throwing wickets. The African lads fell short by 17 runs. Now, we hope they come up strong with a balanced and responsible middle order.
