The group stage of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 comes to an end as Pakistan take on Sri Lanka in match 12 at Swalec Stadium, Cardiff. This the first time in 15 years, these to sides are facing each other in ODIs outside Asia.
Pakistan have sent Sri Lanka to bat first after winning the toss. They have picked Faheem Ashraf in place of Shadab Khan to increase their seam bowling option. Fahim has made his ODI debut today.
Sri Lanka also have made one change to their XI. Wicket-keeper batsman Kusal Perera has been ruled out of the tournament with injury. Replacement Dhananjaya de Silva comes in.
Both teams have one win in Group B. Whoever wins this match, will qualify for the Semi-finals and play against England in Cardiff on June 14. If the match gets washed out, Sri Lanka will go through.
Sri Lanka: Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Asela Gunaratne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep
