Both the sides are a shadow of the formidable team they once were, and today Pakistan is placed at Number six and SL at the ninth position.

Both the teams are at par when it comes to strength and weakness, and the similarity in fortunes can gauge this. Both sides opened their account with humiliating defeats and later tried to make amends and manage victories by slim margins.

Pakistan was decimated by West Indies and could manage only 105 runs.

Sri Lanka was also bundled out cheaply by New Zealand. However, Pakistan recovered and defeated hosts England in the second match while Lanka subdued Afghanistan.

Pitch flat and lifeless

The Bristol track has traditionally helped the batsmen in the past and will provide little assistance to bowlers.

Pakistan has a formidable pace attack which can unsettle any batsmen Sri Lanka has its old warhorse Lasith Malinga who can choke runs with his beaming Yorkers.

Pakistan batting has been its weak point though Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, and Imam-ul-Haq have been scoring consistently of late. Pakistan will also be buoyed up by the fact that they have never lost to Sri Lanka in any of the earlier World Cup matches.

Both the team has crossed swords seven times since 1975 in the World Cup and every time Pakistan has come on top.
