Pakistan vs Australia 2nd Test Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
The ongoing series between Pakistan and Australia resumes with the second test scheduled to take place on the 12th of March, 2022 at Karachi. The first test at Rawalpindi ended in a disappointing draw with the Australian players saying that the pitch was sub-par and did not encourage competitive play, a sentiment that was echoed by the ICC recently when they graded the stadium as below average. The game in Karachi is expected to play a lot better and offer a lot more entertainment.
The Australians will be looking to experiment with their lineup for this new track while the Pakistani side will be hoping for a winning result on home soil.

Pakistan vs Australia 2nd Test – Players to Watch
He is a player who is currently on his comeback tour. Imam is known to be a player who has great technique and the fortitude to bat deep and build partnerships. Yes, he might have slight ring rust, but if he can shake the cobwebs and get going, there is no saying how far he will go into the innings. He was immense in the first test where he scored centuries in both innings, and a good performance in this game will go a long way in making his case.
He scalped 6 wickets on a dead Rawakpindi track and was hailed for that performance. He is also trying to make his mark in the Test format and we expect to see him continue his wicket-taking form in the second match.
True to his reputation, Marnus was in the thick of things in the first game where he scored a handy 90 runs from 158 deliveries and even took a wicket to top things off. We expect him to play a lot better in the second game considering it will be a better track.
Nathan Lyon may not be the youngest player out there but his wicket-taking ability is still on point. With Karachi being a spin-friendly track, we expect him to be in the thick of things against the Pakistani attack.
