Weather and Pitch Report
On 10 October, Hyderabad will experience mainly sunny weather with a 14% cloud cover. The temperature will range between 21 and 32 degrees Celsius.
Batting is easier in the first innings. Spinners will enjoy some purchase from the wicket as the match wears on. The team winning the toss may prefer to bat first.
Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Today Prediction: Pakistan to Win
Pakistan and Sri Lanka were involved in a hard-fought match in the Asia Cup. That game ended in a tied score though Sri Lanka won the match by the DLS method.
On paper, Pakistan are stronger. They have the likes of Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam and M Rizwan in the top order. However, the team relies heavily on these four to get them to a defendable score. The middle order is not as reliable though the likes of Shadab Khan and Iftekhar Ahmed are no rabbits with the bat.
Pakistan’s bowling line up has two of the best fast bowlers in the business: Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf. Unfortunately for Babar Azam’s wards, they will be without Naseem Shah who picked up an injury during the Asia Cup. The rest of the bowling is less than impressive.
Sri Lanka’s batting is less reliable than Pakistan’s. Barring Mendis and Asalanka, the batsmen have not been consistent run getters. To add to their woes, Dasun Shanaka is in poor batting form. Most unfortunately, Sri Lanka are without their X factor player, Hasaranga. The player who is a match winner with the ball can also bat. So his absence due to injury will hurt the Lankans.
Overall, SL have a few good spinners in the form of Theekshana, De Silva and Wellalage. Among the pacers, Pathirana is familiar with Indian conditions, thanks to the IPL.
Considering the relative strengths of the teams, this match could be a tight affair.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka ODI World Cup Match Odds
Pakistan attract wagering odds of 1.67, while Sri Lanka attract quoted odds of 2.20.
Probable Best Batter
Md Rizwan scored a ton in the warm up match versus New Zealand. He will carry that form into his team’s World Cup opener against Sri Lanka.
Probable Best Bowler
Haris Rauf is arguably the world’s best fast bowler. Pakistan’s fortunes rest on his shoulders. He has rarely let the team down and I expect him to become the most successful bowler of the match.
