Pakistan volleyball team secured an unassailable series 2-0 lead by defeating Australia in the second match of the series at Liaquat Gymnasium, Pakistan Sports Complex, Islamabad.

In the first set, Pakistan narrowly edged out Australia 26-24. They dominated the second set, winning 25-19.

The final set was closely contested, but Pakistan clinched it 25-23. Despite being ranked 49th in the world compared to Australia's 35th, Pakistan showcased superior performance and strategy, ensuring a series win with a match to spare.

In the first game of the series, Pakistan depicted their dominance against Australia. The home side took the first set with a score of 25-22. The second set mirrored the first, ending again at 25-22 in favour of Pakistan.

In the final set, Pakistan continued their dominant performance, securing a 25-20 win.

It must be noted the series is being organised by the Pakistan Volleyball Federation (PVF) at the request of the Australian Volleyball Federation.

The final match will be held tomorrow at 6.30 pm and entry for fans and supporters is free just like the first two games.

Remember, the Australian volleyball team touched down in Islamabad on Sunday afternoon. For the first time ever, the Australian volleyball team has toured Pakistan to play international matches.

Chairman PVF Ch Mohammad Yaqoob praised the visiting team as one of the best.

“It will be a cracker of a series as Pakistan has recently won the Central Asian title while Australia is ranked much higher. Both teams are preparing for the Challenge Cup to be held in Bahrain next month,” he said.
