Sri Lanka surprised one and all with a stellar all-round performance in the first Twenty 20. The hosts would be under the pump to stay in the series when they come out on the field in the PAK vs SL 2nd T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Despite failure in the first game of the series, Babar Azam is the top-favourite to score most runs. In the T20 games Babar has turned out for Pakistan, he has top-scored almost 40% of those.
The Sri Lanka opener's form has been stellar. After a stunning ton in the last game of the ODI series, he has followed it up with a spectacular fifty in the 1st T20I for which he earned Man of the Match award. Given the current form the southpaw is in and confidence of scoring runs, he is not a bad bet.
PAK Playing 11: Babar Azam, Ahmed Shehzad/Fakhar Zaman, Umar Akmal, Sarfaraz Ahmed (C & WK), Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf/Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hasnain
