   Match Scorecard   
Man of the Match: M Amir Edgbaston, Birmingham (6 July,2010)

The second match of the MCC Spirit of Cricket saw Pakistan bat first again. Hasan continued his golden run with a second successive duck before Butt and Akmal steadied the innings with a fine counter attack getting the COW back on even terms. But despite regular wickets, most batsmen managed to make a start and Aamer swung his bat around to push the total to 162 runs and the COW to 49%. Australia were rocked at the top by 2 quick wickets. But they staged a good recovery with almost all batsmen answering the Coach’s call but none of them managed to stay at the wicket for too long and eventually they ran out of steam and lost the series 2-0.
