Pakistan and Australia will head into the 2nd day of the second Test of the three match long test series being played as a part of Australia’s tour of Pakistan. The match which commenced on March 12, Saturday is being hosted at the National Stadium in Karachi. I have unearthed the top three betting tips from the PAK vs AUS Day 2 match prediction for you.
Usman Khawaja lit up the ground by smashing a heart-warming ton in the place his parents used to live and work before moving to Islamabad and eventually Australia. The Aussies smashed 251 runs at the cost of just three wickets and it will not be wrong to say that the day totally belonged to the visitors. However, the tourists will be disappointed after losing vice-captain Steve Smith at the fag end of the day. Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith showed some good resilience out there after the loss of opener Warner and Marnus Labuschagne. Although the two failed to survive till the end of the day, they fought well against the dangerous looking Pakistani pace attack. After falling short of just three runs of his hundred in the previous game, Khawaja made sure that he reached his 11th test ton. The duo of Smith and Khawaja struck 159 runs together for the third wicket and made sure that they were in the driver’s seat. Speaking about the hosts, they will be happy in the end after picking up the wicket of Smith but boy they had to work extremely hard for that. Australia will be heading out tomorrow morning with their noses in front and will look to go beyond the 400 run mark. While the hosts will be in hope to grab some early wickets and tilt the match on their side. As we gear up for the intriguing battle on Day 2, let us have a look at the top three betting tips from the PAK vs AUS Day 2 match prediction.
Let us have a look at the top two team bets from the PAK vs AUS Day 2 match prediction.
It has certainly been a quite exciting day for the Aussies and the day totally belonged to Usman Khawaja. At stumps on Day 1, Australia have managed to put up 251 runs on the board at the cost of three. Although the Aussies are in a commanding position at the moment, we are not in favour of them scoring more than 46.5 fours and as you read further you will know why. As said by Khawaja, the pitch is batting friendly and we expect the visitors to go beyond 400 but we don’t think they can smash as many boundaries as they did last time. The tourists have hit about 23 fours on Day 1. With Steve Smith being dismissed at the fag end of the day we dont think that can hit another 24. In the recently concluded five match test series against England at home, the Aussies averaged about 31 fours per innings. Even they average not more than 38 fours in their first innings. The Aussies have gone past the 400 run mark thrice in the Ashes series and have managed to hit more than 46.5 fours just once. On top of that, the hosts just managed to smash 41 fours in the first innings despite the fact that they have scored 476 runs at the cost of four wickets. The numbers are not in favour of the Aussies hitting more than 46.5 fours in the first innings. Therefore, we advise you to bet on Australia through our affiliate partner Pari Match to hit under 46.5 fours in the first innings at odds of 1.82.
The Aussies will be disappointed after losing the wicket of Steve Smith at the stroke of stumps on Day 1. Smith had to depart for his well fought 214 ball 72 run knock which was laced with 7 fours. The duo of Khawaja and Smith had put 159 runs together for the third wicket. After the departure of Steve Smith in the penultimate over of the day, nightwatchman Nathan Lyon was sent to the crease to survive the final over of the day. Lyon remained unbeaten for a duck after facing the last five deliveries. Usman Khawaja is the one to make headlines today. He struck his 11th ton and remained unbeaten overnight for his 266-ball 127. His innings was laced with 13 fours and a six. Khawaja showed quite resilience on the crease today and he batted with ease. The pitch of Karachi favours the batsman and we expect Khawaja to extend his stay today. Off-spinner Nathan Lyon who was forced to bat as a nightwatchman has posted 3, 31, 4*, 16*, 10, 15 in the last few matches. The 34-year-old averages only 12.55 with the bat in his 106 match career. Therefore, we are certain that Nathan Lyon will be the first one to get out tomorrow morning. We advise you to bet on him through our affiliate partner Pari Match and enjoy some amazing returns.
Travis Head is my one and only player bet for the PAK vs AUS Day 2 match prediction. Hurry up and place your bet on him and get some hefty returns.
Left-handed middle order batsman Travis Head is my next pick from the PAK vs AUS Day 3 match prediction. The talented batsman is often called Michael Hussey’s replacement for his ability to bat in the middle order and finish the innings for his side. Head who made his test debut back in 2018 against Pakistan has an experience of about 24 matches in which he has amassed 1518 runs at an average of 42.16. Since then, he has already struck four hundreds and has almost double the number of fifties to his name. In the 2021/22 Ashes series at home, Head was the leading run getter. Although he played just four matches, he accumulated 357 runs at an average of 59.50. He struck two centuries and a fifty in that series. He has scored 8, 101, 8, 27, 18, 51, 152 in his last five matches. He has played six matches against Pakistan in his career and has only struck 154 runs. He will surely be looking to change this record against the Men in Green. After considering the above mentioned stats, we suggest you check out for Travis Head on Pari Match from the PAK vs AUS Day 2 match prediction whenever the odds are available on the website.
