Pak vs SL 2nd Test Preview
From losing a series 9-0(all formats) to defending a target of 136. The Sri Lankan team had to muster their spine to dismiss their Asian rivals. Pakistan will move down to the seventh spot if they lose the second test. 12 months back, this time they were the best-ranked team in the world. But, one factor that completely works for them is that they haven’t lost a series in the United Arab Emirates. Teams like Australia and England have visited and fallen at their revived home. Can Sri Lanka be the first team to oust the Pakistani team in the UAE? Seems possible but is a daunting task.
INJURY PLAGUES MATTHEWS
Angelo Matthews has been declared unfit for the second test as well. The former Lankan skipper is now out with a calf injury and will miss the remainder of the series.
RANGANA ‘400’ HERATH
Post 35, the wily Rangana Herath has picked up 200 wickets out of his total tally of 400. He’s now the 14th bowler in the history of test cricket to pick 400 wickets or more. Disciplined consistency has been his forte and he’s used it to a nicety. He’s 5th on the list for the most 5-fors in tests.
MOHAMMAD AMIR CAN BE THE GAME CHANGER
The sub-continent is known to provide more assistance to the spinners, but a certain Mohammad Amir can change the game for Pakistan. With the new ball there are very few pacers who can match his ability and with an old cherry, there are very few who come close to his resilience. Mohammad Abbas has had a solid start to his test career but Amir is due for a 5-for and he’ll be the man to watch out for.
