Pakistan vs Sri Lanka | 3rd T20I – Sri Lanka tour of Pakistan 2019
International cricket was suffering in Pakistan for a very long time but we witnessed a great resume this year when Sri Lanka visited Pakistan for three ODIs and three T20Is. The first match of this tour was on 27th September 2019 – Friday and the final match will be on October 9, 2019 – Wednesday. Lahore will host Sri Lanka for three T20 Internationals while three ODIs will be played in Karachi. This will be the last match of this series.
The T20 segment of this series was not good for Pakistan however they managed to win the ODIs of this series. The very initial match of this series was disturbed by the rain. Match was abandoned without a ball bowled. The performances of both the teams were not satisfactory in the last ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Pakistan had worst start but they managed to secure a good position in their tale matches. Pakistan won the the ODI series by 2-0. Sri Lanka won the first T20 match with big margin and they also won 2nd T20 match. They won by 64 runs and 35 runs respectively. According to our experts, Sri Lanka will win the last T20 match from Pakistan with negotiable margin. Pakistan should play confidently this time and they can get rid of being white-washed.
On the other hand, team Sri Lanka will try their best to white-wash Pakistan in their home ground. Some key players of Pakistan for this match will be Babar Azam, Ahmad Shahzad and Umar Akmal. Above mentioned players are good athletes for short cricket format. They will surely play an important role for Pakistan. Babar Azam is in good form since ICC Cricket World 2019.
Sri Lanka can be a dangerous side in shorter cricket format. They have some good mighty hitters in their squads. Some key players for team Sri Lanka will be Danushka Gunathilaka, Dasun Shanaka and Avishka Fernendo. Aggressive form of these players may help Sri Lanka to white-wash Pakistan in their home ground.
Pakistan also have some match winning players but we are of the opinion that Sri Lanka will white-wash Pakistan this time. Sri Lanka seems to be more balanced side. We hope to see tough competition between these two teams.
Conditions are great for cricket in Lahore, Pakistan. The team Who Will Win the Toss is supposed to choose bat first because conditions are in favour for batting. Bowlers can also disturb the batsmen due to extra pace and swing due to current conditions. So toss will play a vital role in this condition. Batting-first team will set a huge total on the board.
