PAK vs SL Betting Tips

  • Babar Azam has been Pakistan’s most consistent batter across all formats for over half a decade now and in ODI cricket he brings an average of 57.59 to this match. The right-handed captain will bat at number three and look to add to his returns of 19 centuries in ODIs so far. He is our tip for Pakistan’s highest run scorer in this game. Shaheen Shah Afridi is very hard to face with his height, left-arm angle and ability to land his swinging yorkers exactly where he wants them! With 87 wickets from only 44 ODI innings, we recommend backing him to be Pakistan’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Kusal Mendis hit 76 runs from 42 balls against South Africa on Saturday in a brilliant counter-attacking innings as Sri Lanka chased an unlikely 429 from 50 overs. Although Mendis was eventually dismissed by Kagiso Rabada, he showed plenty of intent and ability. He is our pick for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against Pakistan. Dunith Wellalage went wicketless in only one match during the 2023 Asia Cup and starred with 5-26 against India. The left-arm spinner is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker on Tuesday.
  • The skipper for Pakistan very rarely makes back to back poor scores. As a result, we are predicting Babar Azam to hit over 31.5 runs in this clash.

PAK vs SL ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Match 8 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup takes us to Hyderabad as Pakistan take on Sri Lanka at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Tuesday. Pakistan were not at their best in their opening game at this venue on Friday but they still got over the winning line with something to spare as they beat Netherlands by 81 runs in Match 2. Sri Lanka were well beaten in their first fixture of the competition, Match 4, as South Africa got the better of them by 102 runs in Delhi at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday. Read on as we preview this match which will get underway at 14:00 local time.

Pakistan were not in a good place when they were 38-3 against Netherlands but the middle-order of Mohammad Rizwan and Saud Shakeel were excellent and took the game away from the opposition. We expect Pakistan to have too much quality throughout their team and to win this match.

Sri Lanka’s inexperienced bowling unit were showed up by a very confident and powerful South African batting line-up on Saturday. Pakistan’s batters may well look to get on top of the bowlers again and we expect this to be a tough assignment for Sri Lanka.

PAK vs SL Match Toss Prediction

Although Pakistan got the win after being asked to bat first on Friday, we predict that both skippers will choose to field first if they win the toss ahead of this match.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

Pakistan Team News

Left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman has come under plenty of pressure at the top of the order in spite of averaging 44.98 in this format from 78 innings. He made only 12 runs from 15 balls against Netherlands and most pundits expect Abdullah Shafique to replace him at the top of the order for this match.

Pakistan Key Players

  • Babar Azam - It was a disappointing individual performance from Pakistan’s skipper against Netherlands as he made 5 runs from 18 balls. However, he has been in excellent form in the warm-ups and we expect him to deliver.
  • Mohammad Rizwan - The keeper-batter had a reputation as more of a T20I batter than ODI but his returns in this format have been much improved of late including 68 runs against Netherlands.

Pakistan Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Babar Azam 109 106 5414 158 57.59 88.94 19 28
Mohammad Rizwan 66 60 1761 115 37.46 88.67 2 13
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi - The left-arm opening quick bowler is one of the best players to watch when he is on top form. He dismissed Saqib Zulfiqar with the first ball after drinks on Friday and bowled with good pace.
  • Haris Rauf - The right-arm fast bowler continues to be a big threat with the ball at any stage of an ODI innings. He picked up 2 wickets in the 27th over in Match 2 of the tournament.
  • Shadab Khan - Shadab Khan played well in the first match and displayed all-round performance. He scored 32 runs with the bat and then picked a wicket as well. This match will take place at the same venue and we can expect another good performance from this all-rounder.

Pakistan Team Form

Pakistan had lost successive ODIs before their opening game of World Cup 2023 but the win over Netherlands means they have now won two of their last four matches in this format.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

Sri Lanka Team News

There are no injuries in the Sri Lanka squad ahead of this match but morale in the camp could well be an issue after their recent heavy defeats. The top order batting is a bit of a concern for Chris Silverwood’s side but we expect an unchanged XI to be selected.

Sri Lanka Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis - The keeper-batter is one of the most in-form batters across any of the teams in this year’s Cricket World Cup. He comes into this match looking to hit his 29th ODI score of 50+.
  • Charith Asalanka - The batting all-rounder has an excellent ODI record with 1351 runs from only 37 innings and top scored for his country in the defeat against South Africa on Saturday.

Sri Lanka Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Kusal Mendis 113 110 3291 119 32.58 85.50 2 26
Charith Asalanka 42 37 1351 110 42.21 90.67 1 10
  • Dasun Shanaka - The skipper went wicketless against South Africa but showed his class with the bat in hand hitting six fours and three sixes against a strong bowling attack. 
  • Dunith Wellalage - The left arm spinner has some expectation to perform in this tournament after impressing in the 2023 Asia Cup. He was expensive on Saturday but still picked up the wicket of Rassie van der Dussen
  • Dilshan Madushanka - Madushanka bowled well in the first match against a powerful South African batting line-up. He picked up 2 wickets and we are expecting few more from this left-arm fast bowler. Madushanka has picked 12 wickets in 7 ODI matches so far.

Sri Lanka Key Bowlers Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Overs Wkts BBM Ave Econ SR 5w
Dasun Shanaka 68 44 167.0 27 5/43 35.44 5.73 37.1 1

Sri Lanka Team Form

Sri Lanka had been in brilliant ODI form until one month ago but they have now been thrashed in successive games and have lost three of their last four in this format.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds

The bookmakers are not expecting a completely one-sided game in Hyderabad but have Pakistan as the favourites at 1.45. Sri Lanka are the underdogs to win at 2.62.

Who will win Pakistan vs Sri Lanka ODI Match?

Sri Lanka went all the way to the 2023 Asia Cup final but have been well beaten in both games since reaching the final. We expect Pakistan to be the top team with both bat and ball in this clash.

PAK vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam. Mohammad Rizwan and Saud Shakeel are our tips with the bat for Pakistan. Shakeel hit 68 runs from 52 balls in Match 2 with an innings which included nine fours and one six. The middle-order batter has impressed across formats since coming into international cricket only two years ago. Opener Imam made only 15 runs from 19 balls against Netherlands but the 27 year old is a very talented batter with a top score of 151 in ODIs and 12 centuries across his international career.

Dasun Shanaka, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis and Charith Asalanka are our batting recommendations for Sri Lanka. Opener Nissanka got a 3-ball duck against South Africa and he will be keen to produce a big contribution in this clash. The right-hander has a top score of 137 and averages 36.73 in this format and we expect him to come good in the tournament. Mendis got off to an awful start to ODIs this year with three ducks and only 37 runs from his first five innings. However, since June 4th, he has averaged 48.15 from 16 innings in this format of the game.

PAK vs SL Top Team Bowlers

Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan are our bowling choices for Pakistan. Pace bowler Ali has come into the team to fill the gap created by the injury to right-arm fast youngster Naseem Shah and he has taken his chance. He opened the bowling against Netherlands and dismissed both Max O’Dowd and Aryan Dutt. Spinner Khan returned impressive figures of 1-45 from his 8 overs in Match 2 of the tournament. He is a very consistent bowler who regularly picks up wickets in this format.

For Sri Lanka, Kasun Rajitha, Dilshan Madushanka, Matheesha Pathirana and Dunith Wellalage are our bowling selections. Young pace bowler Pathirana conceded 95 runs against South Africa but still picked up the big wicket of Quinton de Kock. His action reminds many of Lasith Malinga and many are predicting a similarly successful career. Left-arm medium fast bowler Madushanka was the only member of Sri Lanka’s bowling attack to pick up more than one wicket in the opening game defeat.

🏆 Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Prediction

It was a brilliant clash between these two teams when they last met in the Super Fours section of the 2023 Asia Cup and we expect a competitive game once more in this match. Sri Lanka’s bowlers are low on confidence and could struggle again against the experienced batting unit of Pakistan. We are predicting Pakistan to win the big moments of this fixture and to produce more than enough runs with the bat. Sri Lanka have talent but we are backing Pakistan to win this game.
