Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka: Third ODI Preview

Match Details:

Series/tournament name: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka

Venue: National Stadium, Karachi

Date: October 2, 2019

Time: 3:30 p.m. IST

Match Preview: 

Pakistan will host Sri Lanka in the third and final ODI of the series at the National Stadium in Karachi on Wednesday. The hosts have a 1-0 lead going into the final match after they won the previous game by a healthy margin of 67 runs and the first game yielded no result at all as it was completely washed out by rain. They seemed balanced in both departments and didn't have any hiccups whatsoever. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, looked clueless with the ball and absolutely horrendous with the bat. If it wasn't for the valiant batting efforts of Shehan Jayasuriya, Dasun Shanaka and Wanidu Hasaranga, the visitors would have folded for a total of less than hundred. So they would be eager to bounce back strongly in this match but it isn't going to be easy against a force like Pakistan at their den.

Weather Conditions:

The weather forecast predicts clear and sunny skies in the morning which could turn into partially cloudy in the evening. No rain has been predicted and, thus, a full game is on the cards.

Pitch Conditions: The track had something for the spinners and the bowlers with good variations in the previous match. But, as Pakistan showed, it was possible to score runs there if the batsmen applied themselves. So a score in the range of 275-300
