Both teams will be looking ot get a win under their belt and it is going to be a epic match to say the least.
Sri Lanka defeated Canada in the opening match as former Captain Mahela Jaywerdene went on to score 100 and helped Sri Lanka get a good score before bowlers did their job and put the game to bed while Pakistan also had a good start to the campaign and they will be hoping to go all the way this time around under Shahid Afridi who played a good match not with the bat and it was his bowling which put the game to bed for Paksitan. Predictions: This is a match between two of the former World Champions and since it is played in Sri Lanka the home support and the conditions I can see Sri Lanka winning the match and keep their winning streak while Paksitan will have to do play a real good game to win this match.
