The team will miss Sachithra Senanayake, who is out for ban, along with Ajantha Mendis. But with a strong lineup as this one, hardly things will be easy for the opponents.

Junaid Khan

The visiting team will have to get off the rust for this ODI as this is the first one they play since the March Asia Cup final. However, what they come with is the experience.

Pakistan has Misbah-ul-Haq to be assured of in the middle order, and their star and confidence remains in Younis Khan. Mohammad Hafeez did well in the warm-up match, so one might want to count on him.

What concerns the team is the bowling lineup, which may not include Junaid Khan, owing to an injury in the second test.

The selectors may call in Mohammad Irfan, who was left out from the tests due to injury. Saeed Ajmal will also be missing the first 2 ODIs, leaving a lot to be missed.
