Pakistan will be favourites when the Asia Cup final kickstarts today in the UAE after their showing in this tournament thus far. Eliminating India from the tournament must have given them a boast.
The Pakistan side’s batting have has clicked and they will be happy to resort to that tactics. Bowling is their strength and they must be confident. Captain and coach will want best from their players.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka after the defeat in the first game to Afghanistan have managed to come back strongly and win the next games. They will be looking for one final triumph.
The Lankans have been good with the bat in the won games. The pattern should be followed. While bowling wise they have the armoury to do the damage though not as lethal as Pakistan but still quite effective. They will have advance tactics.
For the wicket, it is a bowling deck no surprise and I think good batting is the way to go.
Team news and possible lineups
There are no fresh injury concerns for both sides at the moment.
Pakistan XI : Rizwan (WK), B. Azam (C), Zaman, Nawaz, K. Shah, A. Ali, I. Ahmed, S. Khan, H. Rauf, Hasnain, N. Shah.
Sri Lanka XI : Nissanka, K. Mendis (WK), Asalanka, Gunathilaka, Rajapaksa, Shanaka (C), Hasaranga, C. Karunaratne, Theekshana, A. Fernando, Madushanka.
Expect Pakistan to come all guns blazing but Sri Lanka to reply back stronger which is a good sign of a fierce contest. May the best team on the night prevail which commits lesser mistakes.
