Pakistan Vs Srilanka Live Cricket Match 6 October 2017 Watch Online.
Pakistan’s patchy results against a depleted and clearly under-par West Indies team recently and lowly-ranked Sri Lanka will raise concerns about their lack of consistency against teams that they ought to have comfortably defeated.
Even though Pakistan are no strangers to fifth-day collapses, the timing of this particular capitulation will inevitably raise questions about the impact of the loss of Misbah and Younis. Much of Pakistan’s top order batting will be under the scanner, from the two young left-handers opening up the innings to Babar Azam and even Asad Shafiq, whose diminishing returns of late have somewhat taken the lacquer off his sparkling hundred in the day-night test in Australia. All four of these players will be desperate to get a big score next to their name in the upcoming test.
While recognizing the prowess of Herath’s left-arm twirlers, it is important to note that this test may represent the best opportunity for these players to cash in, as a much more difficult tour to England in early summer, swinging conditions against a quality seam bowling attack will be their next test match assignment.
