Pakistan face Sri Lanka in 2nd ODI today

Pakistan face Sri Lanka in 2nd ODI today

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi confirmed on Monday that the Sri Lankan team is set to play the third T20 global against Pakistan at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium.

Sarfraz XI showed similar form against Sri Lanka in the 1 ODI which they had won by 83 runs. Fakhar Zaman hit two boundaries in his 11 before a ball stopped on him and he scooped a catch. Kusal Mendis took the catch to end the opener's stay abruptly. Now, they are going to face each other in Abu Dhabi. He eventually fell prey to the mounting pressure and played a drive on the up, straight to the fielder at point.

"Their players did come [with the World XI], Thisara Perera came and played".

While all the carnage was happening from one end, Babar Azam was watching the action from the non-striker's end.

Sri Lanka found themselves 93 for 7 when Vandersay joined Tharanga at the crease as the Pakistan attack made short work of the Sri Lankan top order. Boundaries had dried up, but Azam's fine application helped Pakistan's innings march along well. The match will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. A few easy single amidst several dot balls ensured the scoreboard was moving and the pressure was released. "We have to find answers and find them quick". With 1659 career runs, Azam now has most ODI runs runs after 33 innings, ahead of Hashim Amla's 1650.

Pakistan is the closest ally to Sri Lanka and the former board is not ready to put relations in any jeopardy, a SLC source told Cricbuzz.

Babar's ton and Shadab's steady fifty rescued Pakistan from a total collapse after Pakistan lost all its wickets cheaply with three major wickets falling within the power play. Then, the fast bowler, Rumman Raees, and Hasan Ali took 3 wickets each and broke the back of Bangladeshi batting lineup.

Azam knocked a fighting 133-ball 103 while Shadab scored a career best 52 not out to lift Pakistan from 79-5 before Shadab the returned with his best figures of 3-47 to dismiss Sri Lanka for 187 all out in 48 overs.
