Sri Lanka hands Pakistan first test series defeat in UAE

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Relive the thrilling contest

Whereas, skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has gained one place to reach 32nd position. The fact that Sri Lanka came into the series on the back of a spanking by India would have surely hurt their confidence when they made the journey to UAE.

Meanwhile, leg spinner Yasir Shah remained Pakistan's highest ranked bowler placed 15 on the list.

"Obviously, when you have a first Test series as captain, and you lose it, pressure will be there", said Ahmed who played a match winning 61 not out against Sri Lanka in the Champions Trophy group match.

The trophy unveiling ceremony of the Pak-Sri Lanka One Day series was held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday. "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. Their ODI captain is Upul Tharanga.

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.

Puerto Rico mayor calls Trump tweet 'unbecoming'
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., planned to visit Puerto Rico on Friday. An additional $577 million would pay for western firefighting efforts.

Pakistan are counting on a change in format and players to overcome a resurgent Sri Lanka in the five-match one-day series starting in Dubai today. While they have done exceptionally well in Tests, they have lost 9 of the 12 series (two or more matches) played since 2009. But last match will be hosted at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, Pakistan. They hit the nadir last month, losing all five matches against India at home.

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.

However, against Sri Lanka, Pakistan always has a good record in ODI and Test but facing a defeat in Test, team Pakistan is desperate to win the ODI series. In Pakistan they were faced a terrorist attack in 2009 and since then worldwide cricket was stopped there. "But our players will be inspired after having seen the Test team win two matches against them".

What time does Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI begin? But it would not help them in field.
