Pakistan V Sri Lanka T20 Live And Preview: Sri Lanka Aim To Finish On High

Tillakeratne Dilshan (L) and Kumar Sangakkara will need to bat much better in the T20I against Pakistan

Sri Lanka will look to eke out a win in the final game of the tour, a T20I against Pakistan at Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan play Sri Lanka in the final match of the tour at Abu Dhabi, a T20I on November 25.

You can watch the Pakistan-Sri Lanka T20 live online on the official Ten Sports website.

With the ODIs firmly under their belt, Pakistan will go into the match as favourites. After all, it is a format they prefer over the others and with a 4-1 win in the ODIs, they will have the confidence to back themselves.

It has all gone wrong for Sri Lanka, on the other hand, and the batting has much of the blame to take for that. In the fourth ODI, Sri Lanka collapsed chasing 201 for a win, while in the fifth, could make only 217 when it looked like 250 was a definite possibility.

With Mahela Jayawardene ruled out of the series, the T20I side will be shorn of experience even further, although the format will be a good one for the captain Tillakaratne Dilshan to get back to form as well.

Pakistan were without Abdul Razzaq, who was injured and will not have the services of Junaid Khan for this game either. But that should give Shoaib Malik another chance to re-establish himself in the team after having lost his place and form. Aizaz Cheema should get another go, although the injury to the pair will mean that Umar Gul will not be rested for this game.

Umar Akmal should continue to keep wickets while Imran Farhat may come back into the side to open the innings with Mohammad Hafeez.

For Sri Lanka, the only good news was that Angelo Mathews was back to bowling after having not done it for many a game. Dimuth Karunaratne could get a game here, after all, there isn’t much to lose for the Lankans, while Lasith Malinga will be the bowler to watch out for in this format he so likes. Look out for those toe-crushers sending the stumps on a walk.
