Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka in a Gist
After a decade, Sri Lankan Cricket Team comes back to Pakistan. Cricket comes back home.
Since the 2009 attack, Sri Lanka Cricket Team was quite reluctant to visit Pakistan. However in 2017, after 8 years, Sri Lankan Team came to play one ODI in Lahore. But now, after 10 years, Sri Lanka has has come on a tour to Pakistan. The tour included 2 test matches, three ODIs and three Twenty20s in Pakistan. 19-12-19 marks the first day of second test in Karachi. The results for the first test are NA due to the bad weather condition.
Pakistan is being led by Azhar Ali whereas Sri Lankan team is being taken forward by Dimuth Karunaratne in the test formats. Furthermore, ODIs and Twenty20s had been played earlier, where Pakistani won the ODI series. Nevertheless, Sri Lanka whitewashed Pakistan in the test series.
The Pakistan Team did try their best though failed back then. And now, Test Team doesn’t seem to be in a good condition in the current test match too. With the first innings ending on 191 (all out) for Pakistan, the lead might get more than Pakistan’s expectations. Which might not end good for the Team. The pitch, further, gets damper in winters, and the windy weather might prove bad for them.
It is really heart warming to see international players come to Pak again. What was a full stop to international cricket after the Sri Lankan Team Attack, is now fading away slowly and gradually. But sadly, people don’t seem to much engaged in Karachi, as the stadium usually remains empty. But PCB brought up a scheme for students who can enter the match and watch it for free, only if they are carrying their student card.
So there are still few days left for the match to end, so enjoy it guys while you can.
