Pakistan are set to face Sri Lanka in the 1st One-Day International of the three match series on Saturday at Hambantota. After the crushing defeat in the Test series wounded Pakistan will look to revive their pride . They will not be booming with confidence but surely they are not going to take things easily. Catch the live scorecard of the match here

The Pakistan One-Day International (ODI) outfit, however is a far more balanced and settled outfit. A middle order with Sohaib Maqsood, Mohammad Hafeez, Fawad Alam and  Younis Khan and Umar Akmal has everything going for it — a rare blend of youth, experience, power and finesse.  This should be Pakistan’s biggest strength going into the series.  Hafeez returns to the side after a successful Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign. The former Pakistani T20 skipper was in scintillating form the last time these two met. Playing in their adopted home in the UAE, Pakistan won that series 3-2 but Sri Lanka had the last laugh few months down the line when they beat the visitors in the Asia Cup final.

Sri Lanka are going through one of the best phases in their cricketing history. Angelo Mathews has been on the forefront of it all and so has Kumar Sangakkara. The return of Lasith Malinga will definetely make the hosts more formidable and the Pakistanis have struggled a bit in the recent past against the Lankan speed gun.
