1. Fakhar Zaman vs Lasith Malinga

Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman is an unorthodox and explosive left-handed batsman and is known to take on the opponent’s bowling attack without any signs of fear. He’s had a quiet tournament so far, and would be looking to make amends to help his team fire at the top. On the other hand, the Sri Lankan veteran will try trick in his book to stop the surge early on. Who wins the battle between the young talent and the veteran will be a sight to watch.

2. Kusal Perera vs Mohammad Amir

What Fakhar Zaman is to Pakistan is Kusal Perera to Sri Lanka. In the same way, Mohammad Amir is to Pakistan what Lasith Malinga is to Sri Lanka. The battle between a fiery left-hand batsman and a left-hand bowler will be a treat to watch, that too in conditions which will favour both batsman and bowler early on. It will be interesting to see who dominates the either as and when they take field.

3. Dimuth Karunaratne vs Wahab Riaz

The Sri Lankan opener (and captain) will have to face some chin music early in the innings, courtesy Pakistan’s best bowler at the moment, Wahab Riaz. The Pakistani pacer single-handedly turned the match against England in their favour and would be looking to carry the form into this match. Karunaratne is in decent form and all Lankan hopes of a steady start lie with him. Who’ll have the last laugh will be a delighting watch for the viewers?
