Hyderabad: Pakistan bowlers have batted in the Champions Trophy against Sri Lanka in the Champions Trophy. Sri Lanka was dismissed for 236 in 49.2 overs to win the semi-finals. Pakistan set a successful target of 237.
Fast bowlers and medium pacers ensured that Sri Lanka lost the entire overs. Sri Lanka lost the wicket in the opening match of the toss. Dick Wellla then proceeded with the most carefully and led the score. Kaushal Mendis tried to improve the innings. Mendis (27) was dismissed by the team score of 82, and soon joined the pavilion as Chandimal Duckout. It lost three wickets for 83 runs. In this manner, Dick Wellla scored a half-century with a help of 4 fours in the 73 balls. Then Mendis (27) and Matthews (39) also played consistently.

Gautam Gambhir (27) and Lakmal (26) were at the crease. Zaheed Khan and Hasan Ali scored three wickets while Mohammad Amir and Faheem Ashraf took two wickets. Junaid Khan was particularly impressed by Pakistani bowlers. Junaid, who picked up 10 overs, took three wickets for 40 runs. There are three maiden overs in the oversized overs. This is the first time that a Pakistani bowler has finished three more maddins in the ODI match four years later. In the one-day match against West Indies in 2013, Afridi was put in three maddins. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are playing against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy as they have won the toss and opted to field. Pakistan won the toss and won the match against Cardiff. The team winning the match will take the semis, the team of the lost team.
This match has become very prestigious for both teams. This is also the last league match in Group-B. This is why the teams are very strong in joining the semifinals. This match is the 250th ODI of former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik. Shoaib Malik was a rare batsman who played 250 ODIs against Pakistan.
Pakistan lost by 124 runs in the first match of the tournament, and then bowled by Pakistan bowlers in a match against South Africa. But the Pakistan batting department is a serious concern.
In Sri Lanka, the chances of the team are dependent on the batsmen in the match. In the first match against South Africa, Sri Lanka lost the match against India.
Pakistan has won nine times against Sri Lanka in one-day internationals. Pakistan lost once in a one-day international in the ICC ODI. Sri Lanka won the Pak in the ODI at the 2002 Champions Trophy. Sports analysts say it’s a chance to get into Pakistan.
