PAK Vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction : 2nd and last test match of t he series sees Pakistan and Sri Lanka step out to the middle with aspirations of getting their hands around the trophy.
After inclement and harrowing weather conditions ended up leaving the first test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in a draw, the upcoming challenge takes the identity of the series decider. The second encounter of the two match test series will see both these waning sides looking to step out in the middle and embark on a winning performance in a bid to revive their dwindling time out in the longest format of the game.
Making 308-6 while batting first in the first test match, Sri Lanka were able to get only two Pakistan wickets in the first innings as their bowling unit was made a mockery of. Pakistan ended up folding play at 252-2 in a match which was persistently marred by lashing rainfall which incessantly intervened to see only 167 overs be contested across the five days.
And with rain taking a backseat for this encounter, for either side, a win in this forthcoming battle takes imminent precedence. Either are coming into the match having been trounced in their bygone sorties in test cricket with Pakistan being blown apart by Australia while Sri Lanka have been in horrendous form ever since the foregone ICC ODI CWC.
