PAK vs SL, 3rd T20I
After securing a comfortable 2-0 win over Sri Lanka in the ODI series, things haven't gone as planned for Pakistan who have gone on to lose the first two T20Is against the Lankans. With the third and final match scheduled to take place on Wednesday at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore, Sarfaraz Ahmed & Co. would look to salvage some pride and conclude the series with a win under their belt.
Sri Lanka, despite not featuring 10 first-team players on the tour, have done incredibly well to win the series in the shortest format in Pakistan. Questions were raised over the quality of the side that was touring Pakistan but several fresh faces have made a case for themselves with superlative performances.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Wanindu Hasaranga are two players who have left their mark on the field for Sri Lanka while Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad's failures will force the hosts to go back to the drawing board. It remains to be seen if the duo of Akmal and Shehzad will be dropped for the final T20I. If it happens so, Haris Sohail and Mohammad Nawaz are two players who are likely to get the nod.
With the series sealed, Sri Lanka might introduced one or two changes in the team and give some new players opportunities to showcase their potential.
