Sri Lanka With a Dream Start Against Pakistan in Match 8 of the ICC World Cup 2023

Sri Lanka after a great start after a brilliant display of batting in the first innings. Sri Lanka posted a great total of 344 on the board. Pakistan is not a good chasing side which can be seen here in this match. It is a batting paradise but still, they are struggling to score runs. Pakistan is not showing any intent that chase something less than 150 runs. 

Sri Lankan bowlers bowled in the right channels. They did not offer any easy scoring opportunities to Pakistani batters to continue the chasing with a bit of ease. Every bowler from Madushanka to Wallelage has bowled their heart out to build pressure on the batters. 

After 16 overs, Theekshana gave away 12 runs in his 3 first 3 overs. Dilshan Madushanka was the pick of the bowlers who bowled and got 2 wickets in his 5 overs giving away only 24 runs. The weak link of the Sri Lankan bowling attack, Shanka bowled 4 overs for 22 runs. Pathirana in 4 overs gave away 30 runs. He was a touch expensive. 

Brilliant bowling performance from Sri Lankan in the initial stage of the match. Will Pakistan show some intent or Sri Lanka will off their mark against Pakistan to make it 7-1.
