Cardiff, May 26, Sunday at 03:00 PM IST
The losing streak of Pakistan still continues and the Men in Green will be looking to break it when they square off against Bangladesh for their second warmup game at Cardiff on Sunday noon. They faced three wickets drubbing at the hands of Afghanistan in the previous encounter and now their tally reaches to eleven straight ODI defeats, although it was a warmup game.
The Pakistani batters looked miserable against the spin attack of Afghanistan. They failed to set a par total despite Babar Azam’s ton and Shoaib Malik’s fifty and Afghanistan managed it convincingly with three wickets in hand.
On the contrary, Bangladesh is coming after winning the tri-series in Ireland after beating Windies in the final. They completely outplayed both the participating nations and are looking quite balanced at the moment. They are certain to give a tough fight to Pakistan who is already low on confidence.
The match will start at 03:00 PM IST.
As far as the weather forecast is concerned, it will be a cloudier and breezier day which can help the swing bowlers. Turning to totals, South Africa posted 338/7 against Sri Lanka in the previous warm-up match played here. So, a good contest between bat and ball is expected tomorrow.

Fantasy picks from Bangladesh-
Soumya Sarkar had a great run in the triseries. He scored 193 runs in three innings and has a good outing against Pakistan. He averages above 40 against Pakistan and will be a good pick in batsmen.
Tamim Iqbal too averages more than 40 against Pakistan and is in good touch. He has scored 176 runs in his last 4 ODI innings
Fantasy picks from Pakistan-
The top three batters of the side are in excellent form. Babar Azam has slammed two tons in last five ODIs and was also the top scorer for the side against Afghanistan in the first warmup game, 108 off 112 deliveries.
Fakhar Zaman and Imam Ul Haq too are scoring runs consistently. Both scored a ton against Australia but couldn’t help the side register a win. Zaman has scored 289 runs in last six ODI innings at an average of more than 44.
Shoaib Malik scored a fifty against Afghanistan and looked quite comfortable against the spin. However, he has an average outing against Bangladesh and has scored 331 runs at a mere average of 25
