Mirpur: Mar 15, 2012

 

Pakistan takes on Sri Lanka in the 3rd One-Day International match of the Asia Cup 2012 at Mirpur on Thursday.

 

Earlier, Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene has won the toss and elected to bat first in the crucial tie against Pakistan on Thursday.

 

The ever-so-unpredictable Pakistan face their first big test of the tournament when they take on an injury-hit Sri Lankan team, which was outclassed by India in its lung-opener, in an Asia Cup league match at Mirpur on Thursday.

Pakistan started their campaign on a winning note by beating Bangladesh even though it was a close shave for them given the home team’s fighting performance in a steep chase.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, failed in the chasing job against India.

Faced with a mammoth 304, the islanders fell short by 50 runs despite the fact that they have a batting order that runs deep and was expected to click in the familiar sub-continental environs.

But for the sheer unpredictability of Pakistan, both the teams seem quite a match for each other on paper.

Even Pakistan has a long batting order to boast off and they have the destructive Shahid Afridi, who can snatch a game but, like his team, is not consistent enough.

 

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, also have major bowling issues to deal with. Their bowling attack, sans Lasith Malinga, came a cropper on a placid track and allowed the Indians to plunder runs in the lung-opener. 

 

Malinga is back in the team after being ironically left out yesterday due to his tendency to concede runs against India.
