Match Preview

This year, Pakistan have played four T20I games and won just one game, against South Africa. Sri Lanka too, won just 1 T20I match, against New Zealand, out of the five matches they played in 2019. As part of Sri Lanka’s tour of Pakistan, prior to this T20 series, the two teams clashed in the One Day games, which the hosts won by 2-0. The last time team teams played in the shortest format of the game, it was at Pakistan in 2017 and the hosts had won the series 3-0 then. The hosts look formidable in T20 format for any side in the world.

Teams Preview

Pakistan

Since ICC T20 World Cup 2016, Pakistan had won 11 consecutive T20 series, before losing the T20 series against South Africa and England early this year. In this period, they won the T20 series against teams like West Indies, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia, Zimbabwe, and Scotland.

In the concluding match of the preceding ODI series, despite Mohammad Amir’s 3 for 50, Sri Lanka had scored 297 runs. Danushka Gunathilaka’s century went in vain as Fakhar Zaman (76 runs), Abid Ali (74 runs) and Haris Sohail (56 runs) powered the host team not only to a successful run-chase but to the series win by 2-0. Abid Ali, who had replaced Imam-ul-Haq, was the player of the match while Babar Azam was the player of the series for his 146 runs in two innings, that included a century in the second ODI game. Considering the previous 10 T20 games, Babar Azam is the leading run-scorer for Pakistan with 505 runs at the strike rate of 131.16 and an average of 56.11, followed by Asif Ali who has amassed 122 runs. Imad Wasim is the successful bowler for Pakistan with 12 wickets and an economy of 5.37 in the previous 10 matches. Allrounder leg-breaker Shadab Khan has taken 12 wickets with a little higher economy but at the strike rate of just 16.9 in previous 9 matches.

Pakistan Actual Playing XI:

Mohammad Amir, SI Wasim, Babar Azam, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hasnain, Umar Akmal, Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Sarfraz Ahmed

Sri Lanka

In the last 15 T20 series, Sri Lanka has won just 4, lost 10 and managed to draw a T20 series against Bangladesh. Their last T20 series win came when South Africa visited Sri Lanka in 2018. After that series, they lost to England (1-0 in Sri Lanka), New Zealand (1-0 in New Zealand), South Africa (3-0 in South Africa) and again to New Zealand (2-1 in Sri Lanka).

In their previous T20 series against New Zealand, after losing the first two games, against all the predictions, Lasith Malinga’s hat-trick in his magical performance of 5 for 6, caused the destruction as the opponents bowled out for 88 runs in response to Sri Lanka’s 125. For the visitors, Isuru Udana is the player to watch for. The all-rounder is the leading run-scorer as he scored 176 runs at an average of 44.00 and the strike rate of 169.23 in the last 9 T20 matches and took 5 wickets. With 6 wickets at the strike rate of 20.00 in the last five games, Lakshan Sandakan looks impressive. Dasun Shanaka scored a half-century in the second ODI while Gunathilaka smashed a century in the preceding ODI series, and the team may be expecting them to continue the form hoping successful T20 series ahead.

Sri Lanka Actual Playing XI:

Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Minod Bhanuka, Shehan Jayasuriya, Dasun Shanaka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan, Wanidu Hasaranga, Nuwan Pradeep, Isuru Udana, Kasun Rajitha

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI

Lasith Malinga (c), Isuru Udana, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Perera (wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Lahiru Madushanka, Dasun Shanaka, Akila Dananjaya, Wanindu Hasaranga, Avishka Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan

Pitch And Weather Conditions

On the match day, intervals of clouds and sun with a shower or thunderstorm around is expected. The daytime temperature is going to reach 31 °c and the temperature is going to dip to 20 °c at night. The weather is expected to be nice and partly cloudy, while thunderstorms chances are 24%.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, which is home ground for Pakistan. The average first innings score is 180 and the highest total on this ground is 197. The highest total chased is 176, while the lowest total defended is 183. It shows the ground is very good for batting throughout and anything below 175 would be a risky target.

Toss Prediction

Out of 6 T20Is played here, the teams batting first and the teams batting second have won 3-3 times. Chasing seems a viable option here given the format of the game. It is recommended to win the toss and bowl first.

Winning Prediction

Pakistan is the number one ICC team in the T20 format. They had quite a few T20 series wins in the past three years. On the other hand, 8th ranked Sri Lanka have been struggling at home and away in white-ball format. The visitors are still in the team-building stage, and their success depends heavily on how the legendary bowler Lasith Malinga performs. On the contrary, the hosts have quite a few key batsmen and bowlers. The statistics are heavily inclined towards team Pakistan who are also at the advantage of home situations.

We predict that Pakistan will win this match and take the early lead in the T20 series!
