Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Will it be a Worthy Watch?

Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka have played two matches in World Cup 2019 and both have lost 1 and won in one. The case of these two teams is surprisingly similar. Pakistan had faced a crushing defeat against West Indies where the WI team had restricted them to 105 runs and had chased it in a mere 13.4 overs gaining an unbeatable run-rate.

Sri Lanka played their first game against New Zealand where the NZ team restricted the SL team to 136 runs and chased them in 16 overs without losing even a single wicket. The defeats have been devastating to both the teams and are one of a kind in WC 2019. Despite these defeats, both the teams bounced back in their second match and won that over.

Pakistan played their second match against England and enjoyed a stupendous victory. Pak scored a magnificent total of 348 runs which England had failed to chase. Sri Lanka played their second match against Afghanistan where SL had won by 34 runs. It was clear that the teams stumbled in the new grounds a little but had become accustomed to it by the second matches.

The two teams that have experienced the same fate, both good and bad, playing their third match against each other is almost poetic. It is expected that they would fight hard to win and leave very little chance to luck which would make the match a delight to watch. Given the performance of the players in the second match, one can deduce that the players are in fantastic forms and would make it their aim to win.

The match is organized in County Ground, Bristol at 09:30 AM GMT and is going to be streamed and broadcast live all over the world.
