Dubai: After winning the toss, Sri Lanka has opted to bowl first against Pakistan in the ‘rehearsal’ game of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022.

We’ll bowl first. Been lucky with the toss, you never know what will happen. But it’s been our charm to bowl first. It’s good we are playing Pakistan once before the final. Two changes – DDS coming in for Asalanka, and Pramod Madushan making his debut for Asitha Fernando. We need to try our best XI before the World Cup and the final,” said Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka.

 

 

 

We would have also bowled first. Two changes – Shadab and Naseem are not playing, Usman Qadir and Hasan Ali are in. Shadab should be fit for the final, we just wanted to rest them to try a different combination before the final,” Babar Azam told. 

Playing XI for Pakistan and Sri Lanka

 

Pakistan (Playing XI): Mohammad Rizwan(w), Babar Azam(c), Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali , Haris Rauf, Usman Qadir, Mohammad Hasnain
