Cricket fans can watch live online as Pakistan attempts to win for the second straight One Day International match over Sri Lanka in the five-game ODI series between the two Subcontinent rivals. Sri Lanka must find an answer to a revitalized Pakistan team, while finding some new sources of runs after the retirements of two legendary batsmen.
Sri Lanka has yet to adjust for the absences of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, their two finest run-producers, both of whom have stepped back from the one-day format of the sport. Captain Angelo Matthews and 38-year-old Tillakaratne Dilshan, a veteran of 216 ODI matches for his country, must now step up their game to make up for the missing runs.
To watch the Second Pakistan Vs. Sri Lanka ODI live online from Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele, Sri Lanka, see the information at the bottom of this article. The game is scheduled to start Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. local time — 9 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time and 5 a.m. United States Eastern Time, 2 a.m. Pacific.
After a rousing comeback victory in the Second Test Match against Sri Lanka earlier this month, Pakistan — who were swept in a three-ODI series by Bangladesh in April — appeared to receive a new dose of confidence.
In the First ODI of the Sri Lanka series, on July 11, all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez put up a century, scoring 103 off 95 balls including four sixes and 10 boundaries — and, incredibly, took four wickets with a 4.10 economy rate to lead Pakistan to a comfortable six-wicket victory within 45 overs.
Will Hafeez turn in another match-winning performance, or will Matthews and Dilshan step up and rebuild the Sri Lanka batting attack?
