In a hard fought contest, Pakistan on Monday defeated Sri Lanka by three wickets to qualify for the semi-finals of ICC Champions Trophy.
Pakistan and Sri Lanka have begun their clash in the do-or-die encounter in Champions Trophy on Monday to decide the second semi-finalist from Group B after India topped the group. Pakistan have won the toss and have decided to field.
Earlier, on Sunday India ruthlessly trampled South Africa to earn a berth into the semi-finals of the tournament.
The game between Sri Lanka and Pakistan is occurring at Sophia gardens, Cardiff and its tough to predict which team will move forward.
Pakistan were as abject against India as they were brilliant in the South African game and Sri Lanka played marginally better against the Proteas in their first game but were still outclassed in defeat before roaring into form with a fantastic chase against India.
