Cricket Match Preview:

A great man once said ‘Pakistan cricket. One minute down, next minute up.’ This statement rings true almost every time Pakistan take the field. It has been visible even in this World Cup, wherein in the first cricket game, Pakistan were thrashed by West Indies and then in the next game, they beat the number one side in the world, England.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, would be more relieved than anything with their win over Afghanistan. After being blown away by New Zealand in the first cricket game, they had to win the next one against Afghanistan to avoid slipping further. Sri Lanka’s game against Afghanistan was termed as a banana peel cricket game for them as Afghanistan had players who could take down Sri Lanka.

Pakistan could not have got a more difficult opponent than England after their poor loss against West Indies. England are the most favourite team of every pundit to win this tournament and they had defeated Pakistan by a 4-0 margin in the bilateral cricket series played in England. But Pakistan had some other ideas when they met in the World Cup game. Pakistan put up a score of 348 runs on batting first and then they restricted England to 334 runs to win the game by 14 runs.

Sri Lanka did not win the cricket game against Afghanistan without their now trademark hara-kiri. After beginning well with the bat, Sri Lanka fell away to the off-spin of Mohammad Nabi and got bowled out for just 201 runs. In their defence of the total, they found support from all their bowlers and restricted Afghanistan to just 152 runs. It was an important win which should give them some confidence.

With two huge losses already, both teams are now in desperate need of victories. But rain may play the spoilsport as it is expected to rain heavily on the game day. But if the play does go underway, it is important that both teams assess conditions well and put their best foot forward.

Cricket Match Information:

Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in their third cricket game of the World Cup 2019. So far, both teams have won one and lost one cricket game. On the current points table, while Pakistan are on the seventh spot, Sri Lanka are on the sixth spot. Each team is supposed to play nine group games and the top four teams will qualify for the semi-final.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Pakistan are being led by Sarfraz Ahmed in this tournament. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that brought the victory for Pakistan against England in the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Pakistan’s playing XI:

  • Imam-ul-Haq
  • Sarfraz Ahmed
  • Babar Azam
  • Mohammad Hafeez
  • Asif Ali
  • Shoaib Malik
  • Hasan Ali
  • Mohammad Aamir
  • Shahdab Khan
  • Wahab Riaz
  • Fakhar Zaman

Sri Lanka

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sri Lanka have a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne, and he will be looking to change the fortune of a struggling side. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka’s playing XI:

  • Dimuth Karunaratne
  • Lahiru Thirimanne
  • Kusal Mendis
  • Kusal Perera
  • Angelo Matthews
  • Thisara Perera
  • Dhananjaya de Silva
  • Lasith Malinga
  • Suranga Lakmal
  • Nuwan Pradeep
  • I Udana

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Fakhar Zaman looked dangerous in the last cricket game against England. He will be looking to extend his innings this time. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in this cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last cricket game played here was between Afghanistan and Australia. That was a good batting pitch and although Afghanistan were bowled out for just 207 runs in that game, Australia reached that total without much fuss. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 for this game. Conditions are expected to be hot and dry.  

Our Prediction:

Pakistan will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They are coming into this cricket game with a fantastic win against England in their last cricket game. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are coming off a hard-fought win against Afghanistan. Hence, our prediction is of a Pakistan win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Fakhar Zaman (PAK) – 100+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mohammad Aamir (PAK) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Fakhar Zaman (PAK)
