PAK vs SL Team Prediction:

The first ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is scheduled to begin today in Karachi. It's a big day for Pakistan Cricket as the National Stadium in Karachi will be hosting an ODI after ten years since the military attack on the same team in Lahore, 2009.

The hosts will look to make the best out of the opportunity and take a lead in the three matches ODI series. With a couple of senior players opting out of the tour due to security concerns, it won't be that much tough for Pakistan to cross the finishing line.

The second and third ODI will be  played at the same venue on Sunday and Wednesday. The ODI series will be followed by three T20Is to be played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

Match details:

Venue: National Stadium, Karachi

Date and Time: September 27, Friday at 03:30 PM IST

Pitch condition:

The rain has been continuously pouring in Karachi and there are chances of a wet outfield. A cloudy sky with a gentle breeze has been forecasted on the day of play. So, seam bowlers might get some help early on. Moreover, in the last six games, four have been won by the teams batting second.

A 90's born who has witnessed Sachin becoming "The God", Dhoni becoming "The only Captain to have won all the ICC trophies" and Kohli turning into a "run-machine". Cricket is something I am crazy for and I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
