India vs. Pakistan, Second ODI preview, Prediction, and Pick
Coming January 3rd would be very important as India and Pakistan face each other once again, but for the first time in New Year. After winning the first game of the series quite comfortably, Pakistan would be looking to wrap it up with yet another victory whereas Indians will be itching to go out and level the series. The match would begin at 12:00 pm local time and would be played in front of energetic Kolkata crowd. Both the sides are equally well balanced and an entertaining and close contest is expected.

Pakistan side is in extremely good form and team is pretty well balanced too. Under Hafeez's leadership, team has performed splendidly well. Hafeez have played well along with many new comers. Most exciting part of their lineup is their bowling which features tallest bowler of world cricket. Mohammad Irfan is sharp and gets extra bounce. Tanvir has an awkward action and Junaid bowls sharp and in good areas. Saeed Ajmal is one of the best spinners of current time. Pakistan has a complete bowling lineup, but their batting needs a bit polishing.

Indian side has performed well, but in patches. India didn't bat well in first T20 and ODI, but were excellent in 2nd T20. Their bowling, however, appeared better in the first ODI. Injury to Virat Kohli weakens the batting lineup even more and therefore, Rahane might get a chance in the coming game. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers and he conceded just eleven runs in his first spell of seven overs and took two important wickets. India would have to improve their batting considerably if they want to do some damage to Pakistan's good bowling attack.

A loss for India would mean a series loss and Indian team would be under lots of pressure. Pakistan would be looking to wrap it up with a victory, but it won't be easy to get. Indian batting would have to improve and they have experienced guys like Gambhir, Sehwag and Yuvraj at the top of the order. Pakistan side is a little inexperienced and pressure might get to them. It would be the test of nerves for both the sides and toss would play a very important role.
» Man of the Match Prediction
Yuvraj has played well after his comeback and it was evident in T20s against England and Pakistan. India relies heavily on him. He is backbone of Indian batting and can roll his arm too. Yuvraj Singh is my pick for Man of the Match.
