Already 4-0 down, Sri Lanka will be looking to restore their pride. Pakistan is in red-hot form and will look to dominate the Lankans even further by completing a clean sweep of the series after a very long time.
Timing & Venue
The last match of the ODI series will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Play will start at 3:00 pm PST.
Toss & Pitch Report
The pitch is likely to be a belter and looking at the small boundaries in Sharjah Cricket Stadium, the team batting first will carry the advantage.
Pakistan will be looking to field an unchanged XI giving another chance to the rookie fast bowler Usman Khan. There is also a possibility of giving the young all-rounder Muhammad Nawaz a go in this match.
Sri Lanka will look to counter their middle-order woes, however, they’ve already shuffled their batting and bowling in the series.
Possible: 1 Imam-ul-Haq, 2 Fakhar Zaman, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Mohammad Hafeez, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Imad Wasim/Muhammad Nawaz, 8 Shadab Khan, 9 Hasan Ali, 10 Usman Khan, 11 Junaid Khan
Possible: 1 Niroshan Dickwella, (wk), 2 Upul Tharanga (capt.), 3 Dinesh Chandimal, 4 Lahiru Thirimanne, 5 Sadeera Samarawickrama, 6 Milinda Siriwardana, 7 Seekkuge Prasanna, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Akila Dananjaya, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Lahiru Gamage
Pakistan has dominated Sri Lanka of late, considering that Pakistan hasn’t lost to the visiting side since 2015. Sarfaraz XI now has 9 straight wins, and under his captaincy Pakistan has not yet lost a series.
Sri Lanka has been below par in the past year or so and will hope to produce a strong performance to reverse the odds.
