ABU DHABI – Sri Lanka have on Wednesday won the toss against Pakistan and decided to bat first in the third one-day international (ODI) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Pakistan’s head coach Mickey Arthur has urged his players to keep their winning momentum intact. Pakistan has a 2-0 lead in the five-match series, with a convincing 83-run win in the first ODI in Dubai followed by a scrappy, hard-fought 32-run triumph in the second ODI, a result that took the team’s winning sequence to six games.
Pakistan and Sri Lanka both have made two changes. Pakistan have left out Ahmed Shehzad and Imad Wasim for Imam-ul-Haq and Fahim Ashraf. Sri Lanka have dropped Kusal Mendis. Dushmantha Chameera and Chamara Kapugedara are in.
