Preview –

Pakistan is one of the former T20 champions and they are known quite well as a T20 specialist team. They have powerful hitters like Afridi on the squad and combine them with one of the most deadly bowling side of the world and you will get a side that plays really well. Their last few T20 didn’t go very well as they were thrashed by Bangladesh but that can not hamper the fact they are a strong side. They played well in their tour of Sri Lanka and thus the momentum is on their side. They will be hoping to win this match easily as well.

Sri Lanka on the other hand is quite a composed team themselves. With players like Mathews and Malinga on their side, they should not be underestimated. They have the capability and they are also the home team who are eager for more wins. They may be the underdogs but they have good amount of chances to win this match as well.

Prediction –

We predict that Pakistan will win this match but in such a close match like this one, anything is possible.
