SL vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | 1st ODI | Pakistan vs Sri Lanka ODIs

Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 1st ODI Match Preview:

International cricket has finally returned to Pakistan after a gap of 10 years. As Pakistan cricket enters a new era under Misbah ul Haq’s stewardship, the onus now will be on the team to deliver in a big manner.

After a lot of early hesitation, Sri Lankan Cricket Board agreed to tour Pakistan. The bad memories of the last tour are still prevailing in the players’ mind, and senior players backed out of the tour sighting security concerns.

This tour would provide Sri Lanka an opportunity to check the mettle of their reserve resources and their capabilities to perform on the highest level.

It has been pouring down heavily in Karachi leading-up to the match, which means that there is a chance of a slight delay and a wet outfield could frustrate the fans. The pitch seems unprepared for the game, and the pacers will be benefited due to overcast conditions.
