Pakistan and Sri Lanka will meet each other for the 1st T20I of a three-match series on 05 October 2019. Pakistan will draw confidence from the fact that they have clinched the ODI Series against their opponents. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will hope to punch above their weight to register a win against Pakistan.

Pakistan is returning off two consecutive T20I series losses against England and South Africa (one-off game) and they would hope to get back on their winning ways when they meet Sri Lanka in Lahore.
