After a nightmare opening into this edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup, both Pakistan & Sri Lanka are coming from important wins against tournament favorites England and the latest darlings of world cricket- Afghanistan. Both teams would be looking to keep up the winning momentum as they go forward into the crucial stages of the tournament.
Talking of head to head stats, we come across a very interesting fact that Sri Lanka have never been able to defeat Pakistan in World Cups the seven times they have met on the mammoth stage.
Sri Lankan Middle Order
After scoring only 6 runs in a total of 2 matches, the middle order of Sri Lanka has put the side in a huge spot of bother. The woeful form of Angelo Mathews who’s been a vital player for the team in the past has adversely affected the team big time. If Sri Lanka even wants to come close in this game, they’ve got to get rid of this problem.

The Pakistani pacer has always had a better world cup record when compared with his usual stats. He’s bowled one of the best bowling spells of all times against Australia & has been superb ever since. He was phenomenal against England in the unlikely win in the last game.

The victory against Afghanistan was the only time when the Sri Lankan team looked a little dominant. Kusal Perera & Lasith Malinga have shown some bit of form recently and will be vital to use today as well. The Sri Lankan Captain will have to back both these up along side his own contribution with the bat.

After dominating Sri Lanka 7 on 7 in World Cups, the setup today also predicts another Pak win today as well with proper Bowling firepower and a batting unit that’s just coming from a 300+ triumph. Let’s hope we see some quality cricket and not a one sider. The Sri Lankan hopes lie hanging on this match.
May the best team win!
