Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 Match No. 11 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday. It is a virtual semifinal match of the Asia Cup 2023 with the winner assured of a berth in the Asia Cup 2023 Final on Sunday to face Team India.
Hosts Pakistan have rung in five changes to their playing 11 since their massive 228-run loss to arch-rivals Team India on Monday. Zaman Khan, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Mohammad Haris, Saud Shakeel and Mohammad Nawaz will all be playing in this ‘must-win’ match for Babar Azam’s Pakistan side.
Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka team have also been hit by injuries to key bowlers like Wanindu Hasaranga, Dilshan Madhushanka, Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Kumara. But the Lankans have shown plenty of fight in the Asia Cup 2023 with the likes of Dunith Wellalage stepping up brilliantly to fill the void left by experienced players.
Sri Lanka are the defending champions of the Asia Cup and have a better net run-rate than Pakistan so far. If Thursday’s match is washed out due to rain then Sri Lanka will progress into the final.
