After an astonishing victory over the Sri Lankans at their first ODI match among the 5 game series, Pakistan had showed some excellent clinical performance with the likes of Mohammad Hafeez with an incredible all-round demonstration.
The Pakistan boys, under Azhar Ali, are now on the lookout of clinging to their next win with very little difficulties along the way.
On other hand, the Sri Lankans are mapping out the perfect strategy to stop Pakistan from their consecutive wins today at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium at Sri Lanka.
The weather is looking a bit dull today with forecasts of rain on the field. This would help the bowlers for a good spell later in the hours.
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first. Pakistan 46/0 (10.2 ov). Follow scores here live
The most important decision would be the toss as the first batting team would allow a possible score line rather than chasing it later in the game. Keeping the Duckworth-Lewis method in mind, the teams should strategise properly for the conditions to tackle by.
With the last ODI not favouring the Lankans, it is up to the senior players to provide a good batting display with Dinesh Chandimal being opted for a score enhancer.
Batting has always been a positive strength for Sri Lanka and they look forward of playing their best with the start of the match.
The live streaming of the match can be watched on PTV Sports website and Ten Sports website here.
The bowling line up also seems impressive by roping in Senanayake for his tremendous spell in spinning the ball. Lasith Malinga would be all eyes with his strategy and the guidance that would imply on the junior bowlers as well.
Pakistan would also have to play their part with Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik playing their much awaited all round click.
With the introduction of Mohammad Irfan, the bowling side also seems to be a much pleasant one regarding the strategy they opt for. In a way it’s a game to watch for!
