Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka, 2014

X
Pakistan will face off against Sri Lanka in two Test matches and three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) starting from August 5.

Hosts Sri Lanka come to the series, on a mixed note – they lost a Test series at home against South Africa, but won a Test series away against England. Pakistan, on the other hand, haven’t played international cricket ever since the ICC World Cup T20, where they failed to get past the group stage. The last time the two sides met, was in the Asia Cup final which Sri Lanka won by a comfortable margin of five wickets.

All eyes will be on Mahela Jayawardene, who will be playing his last Test series. He and Kumar Sangakkara, will be the key batsman for Sri Lanka and the Pakistanis will need to find a way to get them out cheaply.

The visitors haven’t won a Test series since beating England in 2012, and will look to end the long wait in the island nation. Saeed Ajmal, who has been extremely impressive with the ball, will hold the key for the Pakistanis.
