Watch Pak v SL highlights today ICC Champions Trophy 12th ODI Match, Group B – from Sophia Gardens, Cardiff (England) Monday 12th June 2017. Pakistan’s highest total of this Gardens, Cardiff is 304 with 6 down in 48.2 overs against England, which was scored in 2016. Sri Lanka’s highest score of this venue is 202 all out in 42.2 overs, which was also scored in 2016 against the home team. This means the Pakistan team is much stronger than Sri Lanka at this venue according to both the team’s previous performances.
But we cannot say that Pakistan will perform as good as they had done previously or we cannot predict that their winning chances are more than Sri Lanka because what Sri Lanka has done recently against India at The Oval, Jun 8, 2017. Most of the players are not so experienced in both teams which means both teams have contained with new young blood anything can happen in today’s match but one thing is sure that if Pakistani bowlers show their performance as they did against South Africa then they will get more chances of winning otherwise Sri Lanka’s batting strength is much better then Pakistan in these days.
Sarfraz calls tails. Tails it is. Pakistan opt to bowl.
