The ongoing Cricket Series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan is one of the most talked about sports events. As per match statistics, the visitors are leading 1-0 in the One-Day series and it is expected that they would look forward to continue beating Lankan Lions so as to get a direct entry into the second best event of ICC after World cup. The home team, on the other hand is known to surprise its opponents in the most difficult of situations. And, by no means could we think of Lankans as the lighter side.
In the previous ODI, Mohammad Hafeez was the game changer for visitors as he took four wickets and scored a total of 103 runs. However, there are still four more matches to go, so Sri Lankan side is very much in the game and it will be really interesting to see them do well with the bat and bowl. In fact, if betting odds by the famous bookmaking sites are anything to go by, then the numbers are very much in favor of home team for the second ODI that is scheduled to be held at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. If Sri Lanka wins the toss then Mathews is expected to opt to bat first. The pitch is comparatively more suitable for bowlers and rain is predicted to create a slight bit of havoc.
Here is a quick analysis of betting predictions for Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2nd ODI.
Angelo Mathews and co did not play too well in the 1st ODI, but as they say the game is not over as yet. For the Islanders, Chandimal stands tall as the top scorer, so how well he performs tomorrow will be a deciding factor for Sri Lanka. Dilshan, Mathews, Thirimanne are others to watch out for amongst batsmen. Malinga, Prasanna and Dilshan are the main players expected to contribute with the ball so as to turn the results in home team's favor.
Misbah-ul-Haq's side showcased World-class cricket to storm into the series on a winning note. With this win comes along the title of the top Asian team to own maximum number of wins in every format of the game. So, the confidence level is high and they can not afford to take Sri Lankan team lightly, which is performing consistently for quite some time now. To assist him well with ball, the visiting side needs Anwar Ali, Mohammad Irfan and Yasir Shah to exhibit good cricket. Shoaib malik, Ahmed Shehzad and Sarfraz are the other key players to root for. However, chances are that the home team will switch back to action to make winning difficult for the Green Shirts.
Though Pakistan is not lagging behind either, but team Sri Lanka is the current favorite for Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2nd ODI match. The betting odds are suggested as- Sri Lanka 1.9 and Pakistan 2.08
So, get ready to place your bets.
