Misbah has been their most dependable batsman for sometime and often cuts a lone figure in the middle. This is another situation where he has to fight and hold an end. At the same time, he has to ensure they put up a good score on the board. In the last game Alam had recorded a fifty in crucial circumstances. This is another test for him.


Sachithra Senanayake, the off-spinner and Thisara Perera are now into the attack with the opening bowlers taking a breather. Senanayake was hit for two fours in the 11th over.
