I just wrote the blog for the other match - Bangladesh versus South Africa. And I find myself writing the same thing because Bangladesh had lost all the previous matches and now same with Sri Lanka. To be fair, they did win both the test matches, played in UAE. Pakistan won all five ODI. by fairly good margins at that. The T20 matches begin. Three of them. The third of which takes place in Lahore. That was on the minds of the Sri Lankan players who are still scarred by what happened many years ago. Enough has been said about it.
Let’s talk cricket now.
This is Thisara Perera’s chance to prove his skill and capacity as the captain. With most of the regular players out, Perera’s team is a fairly young and inexperienced side. Perera hopes to lead with example and score well. His highest score is 38. Not at all a good sign.
Pakistan. Amir is back to the side. Sohail Khan Absent.
