Pakistan and Sri Lanka will lock horns in the first ODI in Karachi of a three-match bilateral series that will see the return of international cricket in the country. This is Pakistan’s first international series since their exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 while Sri Lanka hosted Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series which they won 3-0.
Both the teams have problems of their own and will see the series as the beginning of a new phase as they hope to build a solid pool of players for the upcoming challenges.
