Hafeez had been dropped for the last ODI against South Africa, but although Asad Shafiq replaced him in that match, his limited-overs form has been patchy. With Pakistan’s young seam bowlers coming apart under intense pressure in the second T20, the hosts may opt to revert to a more experienced attack in the opening encounters of the series. Pakistan Squad: Misbah-ul-Haq*, Abdur Rehman, Ahmed Shehzad, Anwar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Bilawal Bhatti, Haris Sohail, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi, Sharjeel Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal† Kusal Perera is certain to open the innings once more, after his stellar hand in the last match, but Sri Lanka’s major call will be whether to retain legspinning allrounder Seekkuge Prasanna, who was good with the bat, but expensive with the ball. There are two young batsmen in the squad, seeking their ODI debuts as well, but they are unlikely to play in the first match, given how much batting inexperience abounds in the XI. Sri Lanka Squad: AD Mathews*, LD Chandimal, TM Dilshan, FDM Karunaratne, KMDN Kulasekara, RAS Lakmal, SL Malinga, BAW Mendis, MDKJ Perera†, NLTC Perera, S Prasanna, SMA Priyanjan, KC Sangakkara†, SMSM Senanayake, HDRL Thirimanne, KDK Vithanage
Look Out For:
Given Nasir Jamshed has been left out of the one-day squad and Mohammad Hafeez has been increasingly frail with the bat, 24-year-old left-hander Sharjeel Khan may be Pakistan’s best bet for an opener in the first match. Sharjeel has never played an ODI, but he had approached his innings in the second T20 with a workable strategy, and made good on his plan calmly, and effectively, despite the imposing stature of the target and the clear lack of direction of more experienced men around him. The opening position has plagued Pakistan for some time, and they will hope Sharjeel can make the place his own in this series. Ajantha Mendis had once been a feared international man of mystery, but Pakistan blew his cover in 2009, and he has only sporadically troubled international sides since then. Mendis was not in Sri Lanka’s original squad for the ODIs, but Rangana Herath’s withdrawal has paved his path back in. If he is picked in the XI, he will have a chance to prove he can remain effective in ODIs, even against teams from the subcontinent.
