Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Today Match Prediction Sep 28-Oct 2, 2017
Looking at the recent form Pakistan have not played the test series since their tour of West Indies earlier this year. They had a long gap of almost 6 months now they will have to overcome that. Test Matches are totally different format of game the short and limited overs games. Pakistan will now depend on new comers after the Misbah and Younis retirement from cricket. Now Pakistan’s batting will depend on these Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali and Sarfraz Ahmad as they are the most experienced players now. Pakistan Coach also confirmed that there will be atleast one debutant. Looking at bowling they have a stable bowling line up in shape of Muhammad Amir, Abbas, Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali.
On other hand Sri Lanka have some great test batsman like Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella and Kusal Mendis but they all have to stand up now as they had very poor series previously. UAE tracks might suit them as pitches in UAE do favor batsman a lot. New Sri Lankans batsman will have their chance to play at full and grab the spots and make the name for themselves. Their last series was injury prone also as there were many batsman and bowlers which were injured.
We are here for some exciting match and lets see whose going to be the winner.
We are pretty much sure whenever Pakistan plays there is chance that result will come every time.
