Sri Lanka started WTC23 with a brilliant sweep against West Indies at home, but were dished the same treatment by India away. They took the series against Bangladesh 1-0 but have a big challenge ahead of them in the form of table toppers Australia. 

The two teams are almost neck-to-neck in the WTC23 standings currently, with Sri Lanka occupying the fourth spot with a point percentage of 55.56 while Pakistan are fifth with 52.38.

However, there could be a lot of changes to the standings before they clash, with Sri Lanka facing Australia in two Tests.
