PAK vs SL: Pitch Report
We’ve seen the track record – you win the toss, you bowl first. But hats off to the curator, this is a replica of the India Afghanistan surface. It is a good batting surface, but wrist spinners will have a big say on this surface. Excited to see how Usman Qadir fares, but this is a surface where 1,2.3 can get a lot of runs, said Sanjay Manjrekar.
PAK vs SL: Here’s what Babar Azam said at the toss
We would have also bowled first. Two changes – Shadab and Naseem are not playing, Usman Qadir and Hasan Ali are in. Shadab should be fit for the final, we just wanted to rest them to try a different combination before the final.
PAK vs SL: Here’s what Dasun Shanaka said at the toss
We’ll bowl first. Been lucky with the toss, you never know what will happen. But it’s been our charm to bowl first. It’s good we are playing Pakistan once before the final. Two changes – DDS coming in for Asalanka, and Pramod Madushan making his debut for Asitha Fernando. We need to try our best XI before the World Cup and the final.
