Preview

Sri Lanka will lock horns with Pakistan in the second Test match of the Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Colombo from July 24. Pakistan won the first Test and took an unassailable lead of 1-0, but Sri Lanka would also be eyeing this match to equalize the series.

The last match between these two teams was played at the Galle International Stadium, where Sri Lanka had won the toss and elected to bat. Choosing to bat was not proving to be a good decision for them as they were reduced to 53 for four, but then they had two back-to-back brilliant partnerships, which brought them back into the game and posted a good total of 312 runs on the board. Pakistan seemed to be in trouble when they lost the fifth wicket at the score of 101 but then started the magical performance of Saud Shakeel, who went on to score an unbeatable double ton, and Pakistan gained the first innings lead of 149.

In their second innings, Sri Lanka looked much better at the start, with their opener scoring a fifty. Their hero from the first innings, Dhananjaya de Silva, was again the lead scorer for them but was unfortunate to have missed out on his century this time around. Sri Lanka could only reach 279 runs in their second innings, so Pakistan received the target of 131. Chasing the total, Pakistan looked to be in a bit of trouble when a solid partnership between Imam ul Haq and Saud Shakeel saved brought them into safe waters. Pakistan won the match by four wickets.

Pitch Report

Batters who can negate spin are more favorable to score big on this ground. Teams winning the toss choose to bat first, with the average first innings total being 278.

Player Picks

Saud Shakeel PAK | BAT

Shakeel was simply phenomenal in the last match and received the very well-deserved Player of the Match award for his performance. He scored a total of 238 runs in the last game and should be the one to lead your team in this game.

Dhananjaya de Silva SL | ALL

Dhananjaya was the most consistent player in the last game where he scored well in both the innings. With a century and a half-century in the last match, he smashed 204 runs and could be a fantastic option for the captaincy role.

Ramesh Mendis SL | ALL

Mendis spun the ball well in the last game where he managed to get a fifer in the first innings for Sri Lanka. He scored 47 runs in the game later as well and finished the game with six wickets in his kitty.

Kusal Mendis

Kusal could not impress much with his performance in the last game and should not be picked up in your team as well.

Vishwa Fernando

SL | BOWL

Fernando could not lead the pace attack well and did not scalp too many wickets. He should not find a place in your team.
