A huge match in World Cup 2011 as Pakistan might very well make sure that they go into the quarter Finals if they defeat Canada as they would just require a win in remaining three matches after that which wil be a huge boost for them.

Pakistan vs Canada ICC Cricket World Cup 2011
Date: 3 March 2011 – Time: 9:00 GMT
Vanue: R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo
There has been reports that on this match rainy storms are expected and Pakistan would not want that as they are in great form at the moment, Colombo as always been victim of matches where cricket matches get into stop-start situation which is worry for Pakistan and they will be hoping for a good days of cricket and a win in this match would surely put any doubts about their ability to play at the highest level and would ease their way in to the quarter Final stage.
Canada on the other hand havnt lived up to any expectations so far and they are again coming up against a test nation so expecting anything from them is a far cry and I can see them having trouble against the likes of Afridi and Akhtar who are playing some solid cricket at the moment. Predictions: I can see pakistan going out there and winning the match with, only thing which can halt that is the weather and if we go with the weather predictions there wont be 50 overs game but lets just keep out fingers crossed and hope to have a full game of cricket because Pakistan are always fun to watch.
