Australian bowler Mitchell Starc played havouc with Pakistani batsmen in the first first ODI at Sharjag when he sent five of them for only 42 runs. Pakistan were all out for 198.
Coming to bat, the Australian batsmen were too good for Pakistani bowlers and reached the target with four wickets remaining.
If Pakistan wants to win the second ODI, its batsmen need to play responibly in order to set a suitable target for the bowlers to defend, lest they again lead their team to another defeat.

Australia: MJ Clarke*, GJ Bailey, DT Christian, XJ Doherty, CJ Ferguson, DJ Hussey, MEK Hussey, MG Johnson, AC McDermott, GJ Maxwell, JL Pattinson, SPD Smith, MA Starc, MS Wade†, DA Warner
Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq*, Abdur Rehman, Aizaz Cheema, Anwar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Imran Farhat, Junaid Khan, Kamran Akmal†, Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal
