Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 4th ODI Match Preview
Pakistan are struggling with their batting on this tour from the June 1 from 1st Twenty20. Except Azhar Ali’s knock of 96 runs, no any other batsman could do any mention-able performance in last 2 T20s and 3 ODIs. Misbah ul Haq and T20 captain Muhammad Hafeez managed to have some good individual score on the board neither they did any good contribution to the team’s win.
Pakistani bowling line up is strong the paper at least but 2nd ODI was the bad day for the bowlers as well when they couldn’t stop Lankan batsmen to score a big total on the board. Muhammad Sami is back now after injury and will be in action on the 4th match on 16-6-2012.
Sri Lanka didn’t get a chance to continue their good performance in 3rd one day due to rain interruption. Sri Lanka failed badly in first match but recovered well in 2nd game and set a competitive total which was enough for Pakistan to lose the game.

RPS Colombo pitch is re-laid and 250+ will be good total to defend. Batting will not be easy on the track and scores will not come easy considering the wet outfield and chance of rain are still there.
Considering Sri Lanka great form and their batsmen in great touch, It’s hard to predict for Pakistan’s victory. Hosts will win this match to take the series score to 2-1
