Read this article for ICC World Cup match 11 - Pakistan vs Sri Lanka game analysis, Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Dream11 team prediction, match summary, probable XI and more.

Buoyed by their comprehensive win over tournament favourites England, Pakistan will look to carry on the momentum when they take on Sri Lanka in their third World Cup game at the County Ground in Bristol today.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Unpredictable Pakistan face Lankan challenge

Both the teams, who were outplayed in their opening games, won their second games and made sure their fans don't lose hope. While Pakistan were more convincing in their win against England, Sri Lanka were a bit rusty, especially in the batting department where they suffered a horrific batting collapse and almost surrendered before underdogs Afghanistan.

It was only their pacers, especially Nuwan Pradeep and Lasith Malinga, who brought them back into the match and helped them register a narrow 34-run win in a match that was cut down to 41-overs affair due to rain.

Pakistan, who were bundled out for 105 against West Indies, made a terrific turnaround against Eoin Morgan and boys as they first scored 348 and then successfully defended it on a batting-friendly Nottingham pitch in their second game. And thus, they would be the more confident side going into Friday's match.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Dream 11 top picks

Pakistan have been rather unpredictable this season, even though they have a great set of players on their side. Picking players such as Mohammed Hafiz, Mohammad Amir and Imam-Ul-Haq would be your best bets. Hafiz is an explosive batsman with a powerful presence on the field. His partnership with Imam-Ul-Haq is what we are looking forward to. From the bowlers, it would be best to pick Amir as he is a fast pace bowler.

As for Sri Lanka, they seem to be a formidable side. The players who have helped this cause in their team are none other than Nuwan Pradeep, Kusal Perera, Dimuth Karunaratne which is why you must pick them on your side. The three of them make a great combo and we are sure that they will perform in today’s match.
