In the second round of the Cricket World Cup 2023 at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Pakistan, riding high on their emphatic win against the Netherlands in the opener, faces a beleaguered Sri Lanka.

Rebounding from a demoralizing defeat against South Africa, Sri Lanka, particularly their struggling bowling attack, faces a daunting challenge. South Africa’s batsmen had shown no mercy, setting a World Cup record with 428 runs in their previous match in Delhi.

Despite the contrasting conditions and opposition, Sri Lanka must quickly regroup to regain their footing and maintain team morale. Their opening bowlers, including Kasun Rajitha, left-armer Dilshan Madushanka, and Matheesha Pathirana, conceded a staggering 271 runs in 30 overs against South Africa. Now, on another favorable batting pitch, they face a formidable challenge against Pakistan’s well-acclimated trio of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Saud Shakeel.

On the flip side, Sri Lanka’s spirited batting performance in the previous match, led by Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, and captain Dasun Shanaka, demonstrated their mettle.

However, Sri Lanka’s primary goal may revolve around maintaining discipline, avoiding excessive runs, and coping with Pakistan’s versatile and deep bowling attack. With pacers like Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf, and spinners Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan in the mix, Pakistan is a formidable force on the bowling front.

As Pakistan seeks to sustain its momentum, the stage is set for an exciting encounter between the two teams in the Cricket World Cup 2023.
