Asia Cup: Pakistan, Sri Lanka eye to end horror campaign on winning note

DHAKA: Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be looking forward to end their disastrous Asia Cup Twenty20 campaign with a win as the two Asian teams face each other in their match at Dhaka on Friday evening, ARY News reported.

The match will start at 6.30 p.m. Pakistan Standard Time (PST).

Pakistan and Sri Lanka both have two points on the table with a single win in their three matches. The island-nation is placed at number three on the table while the green shirts are at fourth place.

The South Asian team could only manage to beat United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the tournament and lost to arch-rivals India and hosts Bangladesh in their campaign.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, only managed to overcome the Gulf country in the tournament and were handed defeats at the hands of Bangladesh and India.

It should be noted that Pakistan’s batting department, apart from Sarfraz Ahmed, failed to perform and are consistently struggling to perform throughout the competition. Their experiment of including Sharjeel Khan, the sole century scorer in Pakistan Super League (PSL), and Khurram Manzoor also failed.

Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi has expressed his optimism that his side will finish the Asia Cup Twenty20 campaign on a high.

The two sides have managed to win only one out of their five previous Twenty20 games so far.
