Captain, Vice-Captain And Probable XIs, Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2022, July 16, Galle International Stadium, 10 AM IST – SportsMediaz


SL vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction and Suggestions for Saturday’s (July 16) first Test match between Sri Lanka and Australia: The sub-continental giants will collide in the oldest form of Cricket as Sri Lanka host Pakistan for a two-match Test series. The first match will begin on July 16 at the Galle International Stadium.

The backdrop of the series has been tarnished by the outrageous protests from the Sri Lankan people in light of the financial crisis in the country. But as of now, this won’t create any hindrance in the cricketing scenario as the match will kick-start on Saturday.

Sri Lanka recently drew their home series against World Test Championship leaders Australia. Dimuth Karunaratne’s determined Lankan side defeated the Aussies by an innings in the second Test. The batting looks much stronger now as experienced batters like Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, and skipper Karunaratne himself have stepped up for Lanka. Veteran Angelo Matthews will return to the squad after missing out on the 2nd Test against Australia due to Covid.

Pakistan has been exceptional in the new cycle of the WTC 2022-23. They are sitting in the fourth position in the points table ahead of India. Pakistan finally seems to have a responsible batting line-up spearheaded by their skipper Babar Azam. The world-class batter has received significant support from players like Mohammed Rizwan, Imam-ul-Haq, and Azhar Ali. Bowling has always been the strength of Pakistan and they have found a lethal pacer in Shaheen Shah Afridi. The team looks solid and will be rearing to claim more points to go further up in the WTC table.
