WICKET: Shehzad falls cheaply. It was only a matter of time. He wasn't looking anywhere close to comfortable. Comes down the track and ends up holing out to square leg, into the hands of Dananjay, off Gamage. Gone for a 12-ball duck. Pakistan 11/1.
Lakmal errs by bowling onto the pads of Zaman, and that, with fine leg up. Punished, rightly, as Pakistan get their first boundary of the game.
Lakmal bowling lovely lines in the opening over. Only 2 conceded off the first. Good start. Gamage to bowl from the other end.
PLAY TIME: Lakmal to kick-start proceedings then. Pakistan openers, Fakhar Zaman and Ahmed Shehzad, are in the middle.
Playing XIs:
Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Rumman Raees, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan
Sri Lanka: Niroshan Dickwella(w), Upul Tharanga(c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Milinda Siriwardana, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Jeffrey Vandersay, Akila Dananjaya, Lahiru Gamage
TOSS: Sri Lanka win toss; opt to bowl in the first ODI.
Hello and welcome to the first ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. It has been a tough couple of weeks for Pakistan, who, for the first time were beaten at their adopted home, UAE for the first time since adopting it in 2010. Sri Lanka not just beat them, but whitewashed them, which has left the hosts seeking answers to what went wrong.
Pakistan, though, will be relieved by the beginning of a new format in the tour. Having last played an ODI in the Champions Trophy, where they beat India to be crowned champions, they will hope to carry on momentum from there on. Pakistan could take solace from the fact that the big performers from the Test series have flown back home.
But can Sri Lanka play spoilsport again? We'll find out.
Join us for the toss in a bit.
