Sri Lanka will be playing for a clean-sweep in the three match series as they have an unassailable 2-0 lead at the moment.

Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan by 13 runs to win the third and final Twenty20 global in Lahore on Wednesday, routing the world number one team 3-0 in the series. Sri Lanka's key players opted out of the series due to security concerns, but the visitors haven't missed them as they registered two emphatic victories in Lahore, with Pakistan choosing to experiment rather than fielding tried-and-tested players.

Pakistan, meanwhile, have dropped both Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad, with both batsmen having failed in the first two matches.

Earlier, Sri Lanka, who had won the toss and chose to bat, finished with a challenging 147-7 in their allotted 20 overs. The toss will take place at 6:30 pm.

The venue for today's game, Gaddafi Stadium, has been decked out in pink after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) joined hands with Pink Ribbon to create awareness about breast cancer. "Many seasoned players were recalled in the T20I team but were unable to overcome the pressure-laden circumstances", he said.
