England Lions Bounce Back To Win Second ODI
England Lions put in a much improved performance to win the second 'ODI' in Dubai against Pakistan A.
The hosts had won the first game by 187 runs and after winning the toss and once again electing to bat first the Lions could have been forgiven for expecting the worst.
But the bowlers found their lengths, bowled with good discipline and maintained control despite Pakistan A again putting together a strong partnership. Mohammad Saad made 117 as they set the Lions 290 to win.
There were three wickets for Saqib Mahmood, two for Jamie Overton and one apiece for captain Lewis Gregory and the very economical Danny Briggs.
A controlled and consummate run chase followed with Alex Davies (76) - who was voted Player of the Match - and Sam Hain (69) the stand-out performers.
The third 50-over match of the series will take place in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
