Pakistan likely to be unchanged in a pressure game

Pakistan's bowling wasn't up to the mark in the first ODI. Even after getting to a good score, the bowlers disappointed and failed to deliver.

Having said that, they might not think about changes as giving this combination another go should be the main idea.

Mohammad Amir and Yasir Shah will have to shoulder a lot of responsibilities if the Pakistan attack was to do well in the second ODI. Pakistan squad is expected to be unchanged. The pressure will be on them as another loss will make their lives difficult in this series.

All eyes on Australia's XI with opportunities to reserves in mind

Australia had rested Pat Cummins as they want to monitor his workload ahead of the busy cricketing season. The Aussie spearhead missed the previous game but may return if the think tank decides to play him. Glenn Maxwell could be given a break too, with Ashton Turner coming back into the side.

Turner was also not in the XI for the first game. For Australia, it's all about experimenting and finding the correct combination which suits them.

The Sharjah pitch generally producing moderate scores and some interesting matches. It doesn't have a track where batting is easy. In first ODI though, the track was extremely flat and the dew during the evening made batting even further easy.

For the second game, the pitch could be similar. The weather will be much better than the previous game with temperatures likely to stay a little less than the previous day.
