    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka | 2nd ODI | Karachi | Sep 30, 2019 | Pakistan innings

    The wait finally seems to be over for Pakistan team and the fans, as bright forecast promises action to get underway in the second game of the three-match ODI series at Karachi's National Stadium on Monday, 30 September.

    Overview:

    Pakistan v Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI
    National Stadium, Karachi
    Monday, 30 September, 3:00pm local, 10:00am GMT

    The series has now virtually become a two-game affair, after the persistent rains had forced the first ODI to be called off on Friday, 27 September, further prompting the second game to be pushed forward by a day.

    Pakistan will aim to put forward a complete performance in front of the home crowd, who'll be eager to witness a One Day International after more than four-years. While the experience of seasoned campaigners like skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman and fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz makes hosts appear as a superior side of the two, focus will also be on Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz, who are making comebacks into the national team.

    As for Sri Lanka, complete all-round performances helped them whitewash Bangladesh 3-0 at home, but the absence of their senior players and their recent record against the hosts, wherein they've lost each of the last six completed games, means that an uphill task lies ahead. Skipper Lahiru Thirimanne will look to inspire his team as a batsman and as a leader, to help his side register its first win against Pakistan after more than four years.

    Remember the last time:

    Much like the first ODI, the World Cup fixture between the two sides too, had been washed out due to rain. Their last completed game came in October 2017, the final ODI of the five-match series in UAE, wherein Usman Shinwari's 5/34 restricted Sri Lanka to 103 in the 27th over, setting up a comfortable nine-wicket victory and with it, a 5-0 series whitewash for the Sarfaraz Ahmed led side.

    What they said:

    Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain: "If you review the performance of the team during the past two and a half years, it has improved tremendously. We scored 300 runs during the World Cup; we have scored 350 and even touched 370. Our cricket is improving and we are trying to go ahead with this team."

    Lahiru Thirimanne, Sri Lanka captain: "We have a lot of youngsters. Most of them are under 25, they have played a lot of domestic cricket and they have represented Sri Lanka earlier. They do not have any pressure, they are fresh. We have a good chance if we play to our potential."

    Conditions:

    Sunny intervals and moderate breeze is expected throughout the day, which suggest high possibility of a full 100-over contest. Teams chasing have won four of the last six completed ODIs at the National Stadium.

    I read on web that only 20% of the tickets were sold, firstly is it true? And why so little interest, are ticket prices too high?. I know this is a weak SL team but the pakistani team is at full strength.

    Weak SL team, ODI not as attractive as T20, marketing efforts were pretty weak when compared to PSL + West Indies series last year.

    Maybe its because of the very heavy rain in the past few days (there were pictures of floods outside the stadium). Probably other reason is because the SL team is a weak team and majority of fans probably prefer T20s over ODIs

    Why isn't Hasnain playing, what is the point of playing Wahab, he isn't going to be there in a couple of years, and why against Sri Lanka where new players should be given an opportunity.

    The fact that there was uncertainty if the series would happen and also the weather are the main factors for the empty stands, it will fill up soon.

    It's obvious Stadium won't be houseful. There's two reasons for that.

    1. Not many are interested in watching a Sri Lanka B to come and play Pakistan.
    2. 500rs tickets which is the lowest one are more or less sold out. The rest are expensive for most people to afford in Karachi.

    Fakhar should also do strike rotation aside from blocks and trying to hit for 6.

    So you want an under 19 team to play against them? If you see Pakistan team, we've alot of players who are new to the side and establishing themselves. Keep faith in the team. We can't enforce 5-6 new players directly in the team, so have patience. Enjoy the game.

    I think we were more likely to get better crowds in Lahore.

    Anything under 300-320 will be embarassing for Pakistan considering the team weíre playing against.

    Pak teams always carry a couple of 'senior' legends to WC's who play for the oppositions.
    This WC they were malik,hafeez.
    Next WC they could be sarfraz wahab iftikhar Imad etc

    Kumara is very good upcoming talent. He is quite nippy and have pretty decent speed

    cricket finally being brought back to Pakistan.

    It’s sad not to see the full strength Sri Lanka team but kudos to the players that wanted to go.

    We can def build on this.
