How off-spinner Perera headlined Sri Lanka's win

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Relive the thrilling contest

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI: Pakistan take on Sri Lanka for first ODI in Dubai. After ending the streak in Test series, Sri Lanka will want to repeat that in the ODI series as well.

Neither Pakistan or Sri Lanka would have expected the Test series to go the way it did. "We will have some senior players returning and I hope we'll play better cricket", he added, might having done well to remember Pakistan's dismal record in one-dayers in the UAE.

Sri Lanka and Pakistan both teams are visiting United Arab Emirates or UAE now for the series and their tour started with Test cricket. However, the Lankans are yet to taste a series win in the UAE as they lost in all the six they have played against Pakistan.

Pace bowler Wahab Riaz's five wickets in the match have seen him overtake India's Umesh Yadav to take 24th position while Haris Sohail has gained 35 places to reach 83rd rank. Their inaugural ODI will take place in 13th October, 2017 at Dubai International Stadium. Pakistan's total of 75 in 2009 is the lowest in Pakistan-Sri Lanka ODIs with Sri Lanka's lowest being 78 in 2002.

Oxford unveils plans for zero emission zone

Pakistan's playing XI in First ODI: Ahmed Shehzad, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (capt), Imad Wasim, Shahdab Khan, Hasan Ali, Ruman Raees and Junaid Khan. Keeping the format into consideration, last time Pakistan played a 50-over game, they beat India to lift the ICC Champions Trophy. This will be the first of five ODI matches in the series. Except the last T20I match, all will take place in UAE.

However, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wanted to arrange all matches in their home venue but unlike others, the Lankan cricket team did not agree to visit Pakistan right now.

So, Pakistan usually arranges their home venue series in United Arab Emirates instead of Pakistan.

Pakistan had looked to the overnight partnership of Shafiq and Ahmed to guide them to the winning target after resuming at 198/5, needing another 119 for victory.
