<पी शैली="पाठ-संरेखण: औचित्य सिद्ध करें;">Pakistan will face Sri Lanka in the second match of the World Cup to be played on Tuesday. Pakistan will try to continue its winning campaign in the World Cup by defeating Sri Lanka. At the same time, Sri Lanka will try to make up for the defeat in the last match by defeating Pakistan. However, before this match, both the teams are facing many problems. Both the teams will also try to find out the right balance.
If we talk about Pakistan, the biggest matter of concern for them is the opening pair. Pakistan’s star opener Fakhar Zaman is out of form. After the Asia Cup, Fakhar also failed to play a big innings against Netherlands. Imam ul Haq is also not able to play as per expectations. Pakistan captain Babar Azam may take a surprising decision and include Abdullah in the playing 11 in place of Fakhar.
However, Pakistan has got a big relief regarding the middle order. By forming an excellent partnership with Rizwan, Saud Shakeel has shown that he has the ability to perform in ODIs as well. Apart from this, Shadab Khan and Nawaz also made important contributions with the bat in the last match. Due to the performance of these two, depth is visible in Pakistan’s batting.
There is scope for improvement in both batting and bowling departments for Sri Lanka. South African batsmen scored a lot of runs against Sri Lankan bowlers and made a total bigger than 400 runs. Hasaranga’s lack is clearly visible in the spin department of Sri Lanka. Captain Shanaka will expect better performance from the middle order also. Apart from this, Sri Lanka can make changes in bowling.
