In spite of playing good cricket in 2nd T20 at Abu Dhabi against Pakistan still the islanders would not have found their way for themselves and drastically they lost.Sri Lanka were really unfortunate on that day and could not pulled the things back in the final over.Finally internatonal matches are back in Pakistan with this Lahore T20 and their fans are showing lot of enthusiasm.So the hosts want to give a memorial win to their people so definitly they ll workout hard to win this game.For Sri Lanka this is another prestigious match as they were already got whitewashed against India before this ongoing series and so they try to avoid and definitly they will play a strong cricket if conditions are in favour to them.
Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore
hot and very humid conditions
Lahore pitch is a batting paradise just not like the wicket in Abu Dhabi.We can expect 160 + or above easily.If Sri Lanka bats first then their inexperienced team may struggle against Pakistan bowlers even if they get a good opening partnership on this wicket.
Team News : Pakistan
They have already won the series and may give chance to their bench today but since it is a home again for them after many years, they may go with the same team.Usman is injured and Amir may get a chance and probably rest remains same.
Team News : Sri Lanka
Nothing is left for the islanders except refusing another whitewash.They tried with all combinations but were not successful.Gamage and De Silva may come back in place of Shanaka and Udawatte.
Prediction : Pakistan are in fine form and has good pace attack.Keeping all these things in mind they have more chances to win. Sri Lanka needs more extra energy to avoid a whitewash once again.
