PAK vs AUS Dream11 Prediction: The second of the three Tests between Pakistan and Australia will be played in Karachi from March 12. The first Test in Rawalpindi ended in a draw after the hosts came up with a belter for batters and both teams will be hungry to gain an upper hand, especially the bowlers as the series moves forward. The Rawalpindi wicket had nothing for the bowlers and the batters had it easy as only a total of 14 wickets fell in the course of five days.
Coming to Karachi, both teams, as well as cricket fans, will be hoping for a competitive game though PCB chief Ramiz Raza has suggested the pitches will have low bounce and be conducive to spin. Meanwhile, the hosts are boosted with the return of Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf who missed out on the first test.
