Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI Today Match Prediction Oct 13th, 2017
Looking at the recent form Pakistan have not played well in the both test matches in second innings specially. Pakistan lost both test on the day 5 pitch. Now the format is changed. Pakistan will be playing their first ODI match after the Champions Trophy triumph. In their last match the defeated the arch rivals India to win the champions trophy. After that they didn’t have any series expect the World XI tour. Now its their chance to dominate in the ODI’s. Pakistan record in ODI series in UAE is very bad. They have lost quite often then winning. They have beated Sri Lanka in UAE twice before now lets hope they can do it again.
Pakistan ODI team will depend upon the flashy and attacking batsman Fakhar Zaman who was the hero of Champions Trophy. In middle order the likes of Babar Azam, Muhammad Hafeez and Sarfraz Ahmad will help the team to lift up the tempo. In Allrounders they will be looking at Imad Wasim and Faheem Ahsraf. Pakistan will certainly miss Muhammad Amir as he injured himself in the test series. So bowling will be on Hassan Ali, Usman Khan and Junaid Khan.
On other hand Sri Lanka will look to win the ODI’s as well and they will not like to look back to their previous series as they lost 5-0 to India. Sri Lanka have in form batsman in the like of Chandimal, Mendis, Dickwella. In bowling they also have some talented bowlers like Lakmal. Now its time to put their faith in to themselves and play aggressively.
We are here for some exciting 1st ODI match and lets see whose going to be the winner. This is their last 5 matches head to head
We are pretty much sure whenever Pakistan plays there is chance that result will come every time.
