SL vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Sri Lanka vs Pakistan T20I Series | Team News, Playing11, Fantasy Team

SL vs PAK 1st T20I Preview:

Having won the ODI series comfortably by 2-0, Pakistan will look to capitalize the momentum and repeat the same in the T20I series as well. The three-match T20I series starts tonight with the first game scheduled to be played at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The second and third game will be played at the same venue on October 07 and 09 respectively.

Placed at the top of ICC T20I rankings, the hosts will look to get back on track in the shortest format ahead of the T20 World Cup next year. They enjoyed an 11-series winning streak before their last two series against South Africa and England.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is sitting eight in T20Is and are missing out the regulars like Lasith Malinga and will be led by Dasun Shanaka. They will have to put an extraordinary performance to surprise the hosts.

The clash will begin at 07:00 PM IST.

A 90's born who has witnessed Sachin becoming "The God", Dhoni becoming "The only Captain to have won all the ICC trophies" and Kohli turning into a "run machine". Cricket is something I am crazy for and I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
