The loss in the first one-day was an eye opener for Pakistan. It was only because of the humiliating defeat that Pakistani team spent their time in ground instead of taking rest.

The second one-day will be played on Nov 1 in Dubai, and cricket experts, fans and the team itself are finding it difficult to digest the drama of the first ODI. This has compelled the boys to have some practice.

After the disappointing draw in the Test series, the team managed to restrict South Africa to 184 runs in the first ODI, but the way the match ended was a nightmare. Pakistan lost six wickets within the space of just 17 runs and the Proteas won unbelievably by one run.

During the today’s practice session, players had to do tough exercises on the directions of team manager and coach Dav Whatmore. It seems Moin Khan would be the next coach as chances are bleak for Whatmore to continue his job in the wake of back-to-back defeats.

Pakistani batsmen specially focused on spin bowling during the practice session to counter South Africa’s Imran Tahir, who has played a vital role in Pakistan’s defeats in Sharjah Test and Dubai ODI.
