Pakistan report a fully fit squad. Having just topped the tournament favourites and hosts England, there’s a good chance they will go into the game unchanged. Shoaib Malik appears to have been pushed to the fringes of the playing XI in his last World Cup, not picked for one game and then pushed to No.7 for the next. But he and Mohammad Hafeez will continue to replace Imad Wasim – the bowler.
Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c&wk), Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir
Sri Lanka are likely to enforce one, if not two, changes. Jeevan Mendis will provide the insurance for their misfiring middle-order, which is likely to push Suranga Lakmal to the bench. If the game is shortened at the start, expect young Avishka Fernando to replace Lahiru Thirimanne.
Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne/Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Nuwan Pradeep, Lasith Malinga
What to Expect:
The meteorologists’ forecasts make for grim reading. There’s a 90% chance for rain, which is expected to hit all through Friday morning, putting the game in serious jeopardy. But as locals would have you know, no weatherman can claim to accurately predict Bristol weather. The pitch remained under the hover cover on the eve of the game, but Dimuth Karunaratne said it would be a welcome change from the green tops of Cardiff. West Indies scored 421 at this ground in a warm-up game against New Zealand. Pakistan themselves scored 358 in an ODI here last month and lost. On the evidence of the ball constantly thudding into the sight-screen during practice, the short straight boundaries will continue to be targeted by batsmen looking for big returns.
