ODI Series Between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is scheduled to start from today in Karachi. Hence, here is a look at three Pakistani cricketers who need to deliver during the rubber to consolidate their ODI position.
Why ODI Series Between Pakistan and Sri Lanka Holds Significance For Captain, Sarfraz Ahmed
With Misbah-ul-Haq incharge now, captain Sarfraz Ahmed is likely to bat up the order at number five. The skipper then has been under pressure owing to his poor form for a while and thus, he needs to deliver both with the bat and the gloves. Otherwise Mohd. Rizwan who is also part of squad might take over sooner rather than later.
What Fakhar Zaman Must Do
Fakhar Zaman too has been extremely inconsistent over the last twelve months or so. Therefore, the south paw has very little choice but to produce results or lose his place to Abid Ali.
How ODI Series Between Pakistan and Sri Lanka Benefit Can Usman Shinwari
Usman Khan Shinwari was ignored before the world cup and hence, he is making a comeback. With Mohd. Hasnain also part of the squad and with Hassan Ali and Shaheen Afridi missing out only because of injury concerns; Shinwari must put up a good show to ensure that he gets to play more games for Pakistan during the next few months.
