After the first game was washed out, Pakistan won the rescheduled second game against Sri Lanka. While Babar Azam scored a stable century, Usman Shinwari’s five-wicket haul dismantled Sri Lanka’s batting. Hopefully, Sri Lanka will bounce back in the third ODI. Let’s have a look at the PAK vs SL 3rd ODI Dream 11 Predictions.
The third One Day International match of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka will be played on October 2 at National Stadium, Karachi at 3:00 PM Local, 10:00 AM GMT.
Although Pakistan are not getting the service of their sensational pacer Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali, Usman Shinwari proved a vital cog for their side by taking a fifer. On the other hand, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim also performed well. While openers Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq provided a steady start, Babar Azam scored a century. However, they are expected to do well in the third game too.
Predicted Playing XI:
Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed (C & WK) Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Usman Shinwari
Ten players have pulled out their names from the series where the uncapped player Minod Bhanuka earned his maiden call-up. Although the series win will be difficult for them as they have come to play with a comparatively inexperienced side. However, this will be an opportunity for them to see where they stand without the obvious pool of players. Shehan Jayasuriya and Dasun Shanaka were the standout players as they both scored the fifties in the last game.
Predicted Playing XI:
Avishka Fernando, Sadeera Samarawickrama (wk), Oshada Fernando, Lahiru Thirimanne (C), Shehan Jayasuriya, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Lahiru Kumara, Nuwan Pradeep, Lakshan Sandakan
Head to Head Record:
Pakistan have played 154 ODIs against Sri Lanka where they won 91 games.
Injury and Availability News:
There are no injury concerns for either of the teams.
Pitch and weather report:
A flat pitch is on offer at the National Stadium with another high-scoring game is expected. Although there will be some turn and swing on offer which certainly helps the spinners to play a major part as the game progresses.
