So far the series has been even with both Pakistan and Sri Lanka winning one game each. In the 2 games so far both teams failed in one or the other department. Sri Lanka which failed to put up a good score in 1st ODI came back quite well in the 2nd ODI.
One thing that didn’t change for Pakistan was their fielding. Catches were generously put down in the first ODI and a number of run-out opportunities were spurned in the second. Tillakaratne Dilshan made the most out of the Pakistan sloppy fielding and get his side up to a winning total.
Another problem that Pakistan team faced was lack of partnerships. Batsman again failed to put up scores to give Sri Lanka a tough fight. In the absence of allrounders such as Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik, Pakistan may consider playing an extra batsman in an attempt to shorten the tail.
Now the biggest threat in the match is rain. Heavy rain is predicted for Wednesday afternoon and evening in Colombo.
Pakistan (likely): 1 Mohammad Hafeez, 2 Azhar Ali, 3 Younis Khan, 4 Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), 5 Umar Akmal, 6 Shahid Afridi, 7 Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), 8 Sohail Tanvir, 9 Umar Gul, 10 Saeed Ajmal, 11 Mohammad Sami/Rahat Ali
Sri Lanka (likely): 1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Mahela Jayawardene (capt), 3 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 4 Dinesh Chandimal, 5 Upul Tharanga, 6 Lahiru Thirimanne, 7 Angelo Mathews, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Sachithra Senanayake, 11 Lasith Malinga
Pitch Condition: The second game in succession at the same venue and hence runs will be hard to come by. Expect the bowlers to be on top once again.
Prediction: The wounded Lankan batsmen won’t fail twice in succession. They’ll win the game for the hosts to square the series at 1-1.
Players to watch:
Angelo Mathews: The Lankan all rounder can single handedly take the game away from the opposition with his destructive low order batting. He is also capable of making inroads in the Pakistani batting lineup with some tidy bowling.
Mohammad Hafeez: He played some classy shots in the first game and is in good touch. He can be really difficult to score off and the batsmen may get out trying to attack his bowling.
