Pakistan host rivals Sri Lanka in Dubai in this first match of the series between these two nations, that starts with two Twenty20 games, then is followed by a one-day series and then three Tests.
The Pakistanis last played in this form of the game during a disappointing tie with Afghanistan and will be hoping to show more fight this time around.
Saeed Ajmal will return to the team to give a much needed boost, whilst uncapped Usman Khan could play in the absence of the injured Mohammad Irfan.
Misbah-ul-Haq has claimed that some of the Pakistan players are suffering homesickness due to the fact they are having to play their homes games in Dubai however.
For the Sri Lankans veteran Mahela Jayawardene will be missing, so there is a chance for some of the youngsters to establish their place in the team – such as Kusal Perera.
There is pressure on both captains as question marks remain over visiting skipper Dinesh Chandimal’s capabilities, whilst Mohammad Hafeez has been axed from both the Test and ODI setups.
