Pakistan and Sri Lanka face off in the third and final T20-I at the Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday. The home side has already conceded the series and will be playing for pride. However, a second string Sri Lanka side has other ideas. With the series already done and dusted, Dasun Shanaka and co would love to clinch a 3-0 win and announce themselves as a force to reckon with. The home is wounded and has won only one T20-I this year and would love to make amends in the final game of this tour in Lahore.

The pitch does support strokeplay with the Sri Lankans taking full toll while batting first in both the previous games. BattIng first would be ideal scenario here with the pitch slowing down as the game progresses. 165 should be par here at the Gaddafi Stadium.
There isn’t a chance for rain to interrupt this game although there might be some swing on offer with cloudy conditions expected. Dew might play a factor as spinners should find it a touch difficult to grip the ball.
