The 2nd ODI between Pakistan Women and England Women went on expected lines as England registered a comprehensive annihilation of the opposition by 127 runs. Having already won the 1st match, this win clinches the series for England and now the 3rd and final game on December 14 will have no bearing on the outcome of the series.
Since this series is also a part of the ICC Women's Championship, the two victories have taken England to the 2nd position in the table with 28 points. Pakistan Women, meanwhile, are on the 5th with 15 points. They would be desperate to win the last game and have a chance to enter the top 4 for direct qualification in the 2021 ODI World Cup. For now, though, England Women are looking too strong. They have extended their winning streak against Pakistan to 10 ODIs and will begin the last match of the series as clear favorites.

Pakistan Women have plenty of things to sort out right now. Their bowling appears toothless against a strong batting lineup. And their batting is heavily dependent on a few individuals. In the 2nd ODI, only opener Nahida Khan (40) and captain Bismah Maroof (64) made notable contributions. Bismah has now hit two fifties in a row and in a batting unit that is constantly failing, she will have to take the responsibility again in the next game. However, Sidra Ameen, Javeria Khan, Omaima Sohail and Nida Dar would have to put up contributions too if Pakistan hopes to even challenge England in the final ODI. Pakistan Women's bowling has been insipid this series. For the second game in a row, they ended up conceding plenty of runs as England put up a commanding 327-4 on the board. Barring Diana Baig and Nashra Sandhu to an extent, all the other bowlers leaked runs. The bowling unit will have to come up with a solid strategy and fast if they want to stop this powerful England Women batting lineup. Right now, they don't seem to have any answers to England's onslaughts.
Diana Baig, Aliya Riaz, Syeda Aroob Shah, Sidra Nawaz, Anam Amin, Bismah Maroof, Nahida Khan, Nida Dar, Kainat Hafeez, Omaima Sohail, Javeria Khan
England Women will be pleased with another all-round and complete performance. While in the 1st ODI, it was openers Tammy Beaumont and Danielle Wyatt who did all the scoring with respective centuries, in the 2nd ODI, Natalie Sciver's terrific 85-ball unbeaten 100 made the biggest impact.
Captain Heather Knight struck a solid 85 while Fran Wilson's sensational 85 off 49 balls pushed England to a commanding total of 327. With the batting order looking in pink health and almost all of them have made vital contributions in both the games, England Women will be confident of putting up another strong display with the bat in the 3rd ODI.
England Women's bowling was quite impressive too. They bundled out Pakistan for just 200 courtesy sterling efforts from Anya Shrubsole (2-31) and Sarah Glenn (2-37). Sophie Ecclestone and captain Heather Knight picked up 2 wickets apiece as well. Opening bowler Katherine Brunt bowled an economical spell at the start which put added pressure on Pakistan. England truly has great variety in their bowling unit and all the bowlers look to be in a good rhythm. They should prove to be quite a handful in the last game.
Sarah Glenn, Danielle Wyatt, Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Davies, Amy Ellen Jones, Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight, Fran Wilson, Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Katherine Brunt

Pakistan Women have never beaten England Women in ODIs. There have been 10 ODIs played between the two sides now and all of them have been won by England Women. At present, there appears to be a wide gap between the two sides and Pakistan Women will have to produce something special to end this losing streak.
England is too strong at the moment and has all bases covered. Lest one forget, they are the reigning ODI champions and are playing like one in this series. England Women will thus be confident of winning the 3rd ODI and clinching the series 3-0. They are a robust all-round outfit and should be backed as the winners of this match.
