ICC World Cup 2019, London: Sri Lanks look to improve their worst record against resurgent Pakistan
Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka made a resounding comeback in their previous fixtures against England and Afghanistan respectively. Now, they will look to build on their momentum when they face each other in the eleventh fixture of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on Friday, June 7.
Pakistan Team Updates :
Pakistan ended their 11-match winless streak in their CWC fixture against England, and they will love to add some points on Friday.
Imam-ul-Haq (44 runs from 58 balls), Fakhar Zaman (36 runs from 40 balls) and Babar Azam (63 runs from 66 balls), provided a strong batting platform against England, which was later carried forward by Mohammad Hafeez (84 runs from 62 balls) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (55 runs from 44 balls). All of these players were in good touch against England and the management will need them to replicate their show against Sri Lanka.
Wahab Riaz was the pick of the lot with three wickets while Mohammad Amir (2/67) and Shadab Khan (2/63) shared four scalps among them. The performance of their key bowlers in the previous game seen as a massive relief for Pakistan and the skipper will need them to play a similar role against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka Team Updates :
Sri Lankans somehow managed to avoid Afghanistan scare in their last fixture, but now they need to defy all the stats and odds against a strong Pakistan line-up.
Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera have been only consistent performers for the Sri Lankan side, and Sri Lanka’s batting seems too relied heavily on these two. Meanwhile, the failure of Angelo Mathews is hurting them badly, and the management will need him to regain his lost form and play a hefty inning on Friday.
Nuwan Pradeep (4/31) and Lasith Malinga (3/39) wiped out the Afghan batters with their destructive spells, and it would be interesting to see if they can repeat it against Pakistan.
Venue: Bristol, England
The forecast for Bristol is mostly cloudy, with intermittent showers expected throughout Friday.
Bristol is unlikely to deliver a full game with heavy rain expected during the match hours.
The Nottingham pitch is usually ideal for batting, but the overcast conditions will serve the pacers better.

Pakistan Team news:
Pakistan look like a settled unit except for one — they have to make a choice between Haris Sohail and Asif Ali in the middle order. While Haris provides a solid and stable option, Ali can be touted as a pinch-hitter. But with batting coming good in their previous encounter against England, Pakistan would not like to tinker with the winning combination.
Pakistan possible XI :
Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Asif Ali, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Shahdab Khan, Mohammad Amir
Sri Lanka Team News:
Sri Lanka was fortunate to register a win against Afghanistan despite ordinary performance in their last encounter. While the bowlers seem to be fighting hard, it is their batting that is struggling. Only Kusal Perera has managed to score some runs. Senior members will have to step up. Also, there can possibly be no change in the team against Pakistan for their reserve batsmen don’t boast of a good record.
Sri Lanka possible XI :
Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhanajaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match prediction:
As is evident, Pakistan has enjoyed quite a superiority when it comes to ODI cricket and World Cup 2019 may add another chapter.
Coincidentally, Sri Lanka has never beaten Pakistan in a 50-over World Cup match. They have come close on several occasions but have always been beaten at the end.
Needless to say, like India have the wood on Pakistan when it comes to World Cup matches, Pakistan has the same advantage over Sri Lanka.
