SriLanka vs Pakistan final One Day International highlights.
2017 has been a very tough year for Sri Lanka. They have already tasted the humiliation of a whitewash at the hands of South Africa in February and India in September. Now another likely humiliation is at hand today. Pakistan have won the first four ODIs against Sri Lanka and today the last one has started with an opportunity for Pakistan to take revenge of the Test series they recently lost.
Sharjah surfaces are rarely conducive to scores of more than 300 but are not overtly biased towards the bowlers either. The temperature is forecast to be in the mid-30-degree range in the afternoon. Having run themselves out of options, Sri Lanka may retain many of the same XI that lost by seven wickets on Friday. Pakistan may be tempted to experiment in this dead rubber. Left-arm quick Usman Khan may get another match after taking 1 for 38 on debut on Friday.
Sri Lanka have won the toss and chose to bat first.

Pakistan should be really delighted. If winning the series 5-0 was a cake in the rack. Unleashing outrageous talents should be the perfect icing on the cake. Sri Lanka’s problems, though, continues to multiply with each series. They don’t seem to find any answers. Their immediate opportunity to erase this nightmare will commence on Thursday, the 26th October, where both sides face-off in the first of 3-match T20I series. Do remember to join us then. Thanks for your company. Until next time, goodbye and good night!!
Sarfraz is fizzing with sheer joy and why? He’s been handed the trophy. Poses for the cameras and here come his mates….The junior Sarfraz is being craddled by his dad. Some quirky poses. Some mocking. At the end of it all, they seem to be having great fun
Pakistan Won the Match by 9 Wickets
Pakistan have outclassed their rivals in every department. Their bowling has been far superior to that of Sri Lanka and batting worked well, courtesy very poor bowling from their South Asian neighbors. Even without Mohammad Amir in the squad, Sarfraz Ahmed’s suggestion that Pakistan have the best ODI attack in the world is not outlandish, Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali having run white-hot through this series. Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq have fired at the top of the order, and Shoaib Malik has batted well in the middle. When required, the lower order has bailed the team out as well. They are facing weak opposition, but with several Pakistan players continuing to make a charge up the ODI rankings, they can claim to have consolidated the ODI form they had gathered during the Champions Trophy.
