SL vs PAK Match Details

Match: Sri Lanka vs Pakistan, 2nd Test | Pakistan Tour of Sri Lanka

Date: Sunday, 24 July 2022

Time: 10:00 (GMT+5.5) / 10:30 (GMT+6)

Format: Test

Venue: Galle International Stadium, Galle

SL vs PAK Preview

  • At Galle, Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka in the opening Test match, making history.
  • For Pakistan, Abdullah Shafique and Babar Azam stood out in the first game of the series.
  • For Sri Lanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Prabath Jayasuriya, and Oshada Fernando delivered respectable performances.


Sri Lanka and Pakistan square off in the second and final Test in Galle following a thrilling first game of the series that ended on Wednesday. Despite giving the visitors a target of 342, Sri Lanka took a four-run advantage into the second innings of the match but was unable to stop Pakistan from winning. At 10:00 local time, the Second Test gets underway at the Galle International Stadium.

Sri Lanka held the advantage at times, but after defeating Australia earlier in the month, they were unable to win two straight matches. They did, though, display enough skill and tenacity to demonstrate that this might be another close Test.

In recent Test cricket, Pakistan became the most recent team to achieve this feat. To win, they had to use every bit of their skill with the ball and bat during the entire contest.

SL vs PAK Weather Report

Throughout the Second Test at Galle, there will be a lot of cloud cover, high humidity, and warm temperatures. No rain delays are anticipated.

SL vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

The team batting second has prevailed in both of this month’s previous Tests at this location. Although it will be a difficult decision, if either captain wins the toss, we anticipate they will both opt to bat first.

SL vs PAK Pitch Report

We observed a different wicket in Galle that favored spin bowlers in the First Test, and we do not anticipate seeing much of a change in this match. The pitch won’t deteriorate significantly over the next couple of days, according to our forecast.

Sri Lanka Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The hosts will make at least one change after spinner Maheesh Theekshana was forced to withdraw from the match due to a finger injury. He has been replaced in the lineup by off-spinner Lakshitha Manasinghe, who is anticipated to make his debut. In addition, we anticipate Pathum Nissanka rejoining the team after his illness has passed.

Recent form – L W L W D

Pakistan Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Agha Salman made his Pakistani Test debut in the first match of the series, and despite his struggles with bat and ball, we anticipate that he will be given another chance in this Test. Injuries are not a concern for the Pakistani team.
