Pakistan had last played their test against the very same Sri Lanka team at Sharjah. In the last five years, both teams have played five series against one another, with one series in Pakistan, two in Sri Lanka and the other two in UAE.

Pakistan should be more under pressure with no wins in a test series since 2012. More than anyone else, skipper Misbah-ul-Haq would be much under pressure for a series-win this time.

As for Sri Lanka, they had lost their last test at Galle against South Africa, which is the same pitch where they are starting off their first test on August 6.

In terms of changes in Pakistan team, Umar Akmal has been brought to action, and there is Asad Shafiq, who has been kept as a part of the touring team.

For Sri Lanka, they will play sans Dinesh Chandimal and Ajantha Mendis, which are two major changes.
