T20 series: The second match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be played on today
LAHORE : Pakistan and Sri Lanka are all set to lock horns against each other in 2nd Twenty20 International (T20I) of the series on Monday (today) at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore (GSL) as the Green Shirts are confident to level to three-match series.
Both teams conducted practice sessions at the GSL on Sunday to finalize preparations for today’s encounter which is scheduled to start at 06:30 PM.
Pakistan chief selector and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq backed Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal who failed to perform in the first T20I while making a comeback.
“A player cannot be dropped from the team over one match performance. It takes time for someone who hasn’t played international cricket for so long,” Misbah-ul-Haq said.
Let it be known that Sri Lanka had achieved their biggest T20I win over world number one Pakistan by 64 runs on the back of some brilliant batting and bowling in first match on Saturday. A win in today’s clash will ensure series victory for the Islanders.
