SL vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction and Preview: 2nd ODI
SL vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction, Match Preview and Probable Playing XI of the second match, Sri Lanka tour of Pakistan, 2019. Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in the 2nd ODI at National Stadium in Karachi.
The long-awaited tour did not get a favourable start as the first ODI was washed out due to rain. The second one-day encounter was also postponed to the next day to make ground conditions appropriate. There are fewer chances of rain tomorrow, and hopefully, a good contest between bat and ball can be seen tomorrow in-front of fully packed Karachi stadium.
Lahiru Thirimanne will lead a depleted Sri Lanka team without their ten key players. He will be the key in the batting department along with Avishka Fernando and Danushka Gunathilaka. The all-round trio of Shanaka-Jayasuriya-Udana will play an essential role for the team in the absence of experienced players. However, their bowling department looks thin on the paper with Nuwan Pradeep and Isuru Udana being the established bowlers for the team. With just two more matches left in ODI series, They will hope to give a tough challenge to hosts tomorrow.
Team Pakistan finally get an opportunity to play on their home soil after the Zimbabwe series in 2015. It will also be their first match under the newly elected coach Misbah-ul-Haq. Also, many players get a chance to represent their national teams such as Abid Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan and Usman Shinwari.
The focus will be on their openers Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq to give a solid start to the team. Their middle order looks sharp with the likes of Babar Azam, Haris Sohail and Sarfaraz Ahmed. Moreover, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan will be eager to score plenty of runs for the team in death overs. Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz will spearhead the pace attack while Imad Wasim and Shadab will be keen to chip in with wickets in the middle overs. They will hope to put a dominant show in-front of the home crowd in the much-awaited encounter and get insurmountable 1-0 lead in the series.
