Pakistan and Sri Lanka are all set to play against each other in the second semi-final of the Asian Games 2023. The Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field in Hangzhou will host the match on Sunday, September 24. Pakistan, led by Nida Dar, made their way through to the semi-final after their quarterfinal against Indonesia was washed out without a ball being bowled.
Pakistan, however, will be looking to win the game against Sri Lanka and assure themselves of a medal as well. Players like Dar, Muneeba Ali, Aliya Riaz, Diana Baig, and Nashra Sandhu are likely to play key roles. On the other hand, Sri Lanka, led by veteran Chamari Athapaththu will be high on confidence after beating England in the bilateral series recently, and then Thailand by eight wickets in the Asian Games quarterfinal as well.
