The SL vs PAK encounter takes place on September 9 (Friday). The venue of the clash is Dubai International Cricket Stadium in UAE
Pakistan are coming after a win against Afghanistan in Sharjah, while Sri Lanka are riding high on confidence after beating India in their previous match. Both teams will want to win the match and go into the final match with confidence.
As usual, the Dubai pitch is expected to favour the team batting second, with dew perhaps forming in the second innings to hamper the bowlers. It will be the same surface as the one used by India and Afghanistan on Thursday and so, as such, will be worn.
The wicket at the Dubai International Stadium has provided some good batting tracks in the tournament and a similar kind of wicket is expected for the match. Skipper winning the toss might be tempted to chase.
