0.3 EMDY Munaweera b Imad Wasim 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

ABU DHABI: Pakistan won the toss against Sri Lanka and skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed chose to bowl first against the visitors on the first T20, on Thursday. 

The match will be played at the Shaikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Sri Lanka will be trying to put the humiliating 5-0 ODI whitewash behind them when they go up against Pakistan.

The green shirts on the other hand will be oozing with confidence, having outplayed the Sri Lankans completely in the five-match ODI series.

Ahmed Shehzad, who got injured and made way for opener Imam-ul-Haq in the last couple of matches, will return to the squad.


Pakistan (probable): 1 Ahmed Shehzad, 2 Fakhar Zaman, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Mohammad Hafeez, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt, wk), 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Shadab Khan, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Usman Khan

Sri Lanka's T20 squad was put together hurriedly, and they might not be sure of their best XI yet.


Sri Lanka (probable): 1 Dilshan Munaweera, 2 Danushka Gunathilaka, 3 Sadeera Samarawickrama, 4 Mahela Udawatte, 5 Ashan Priyanjan, 6 Dasun Shanaka, 7 Seekkuge Prasanna, 8 Thisara Perera (capt.), 9 Sachith Pathirana, 10 Jeffrey Vandersay, 11 Lahiru Gamage.
