Pakistan wins toss and bats in 2nd ODI against England

BY foxsports • August 27, 2016

LONDON (AP) Pakistan captain Azhar Ali won the toss and opted to bat in the second one-day international against England at Lord's on Saturday.

The tourists made three changes from the side which lost the rain-affected first ODI at Southampton by 44 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

Opening batsman Mohammad Hafeez missed out due to a knee injury and was replaced by Sami Aslam.

Fast bowler Umar Gul and spinner Mohammad Nawaz were left out and Pakistan brought in key leg-spinner Yasir Shah and 22-year-old paceman Hasan Ali, who made his debut against Ireland last week.

England retained the same team which took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
