Pakistan and Sri Lanka will take on each other in the first of the five-ODI series in Sharjah on Wednesday.
Both the sides are coming into the series after drawing the two-match T20 series 1-1. But Pakistan are more match-ready than their counterparts as they had two back-to-back series (home and away) against South Africa and the good result in South Africa would have done wonders to the team’s confidence.
The match will begin at 15:00 local (4:00PM Pakistan)
The match will be streamed live on PTV sports and Geo Sports
