With the ODI World Cup up and running and a heavyweight clash between Asian giants coming up, here are the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka where to watch details.
Two former World Cup winners and neighbouring rivals facing off each other in the biggest stage automatically set the pulses racing. Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on 10th October.
Pakistan are coming off a disappointing Asia Cup campaign where they finished last in the Super 4 stage and lost their No. 1 spot in the ODI rankings to arch-rivals India. However, they started the World Cup with a win and will be looking to build on that victory.
Despite the victory, the form of the top order will be a concern for Pakistan as they lost their top 3 for just 38 runs against the Netherlands. Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq will need to find form quickly if the men in green are to qualify for the semifinals.
The emergence of Saud Shakeel as an attacking no.5 is a huge plus for Pakistan, as is the form of wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan. If Iftikhar Ahmed can play some firing knocks, Pakistan can be a formidable outfit, especially with their bowling unit’s strength.
Sri Lanka will be facing Pakistan on the back of a thrashing from South Africa. The Lankan Lions are missing key bowlers, including Wanindu Hasaranga, who is out of the World Cup with an injury.
A Sri Lankan bowling line-up without Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana, who was out for the first game but could come back in this one, was torn apart by the trio of Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram, all of whom notched up tons.
Sri Lankan batters fought fiercely while chasing the highest-ever total in the history of the ODI World Cup, and they can take their fearless batting as a positive into the game against Pakistan. Sri Lanka will need to bring their A game against a fiery Pakistan pace bowling lineup.
This promises to be a mouthwatering clash that will attract fans all around the globe. Here are the details of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka where to watch via TV channels and live streams.
