Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI, Dubai, live cricket score

Pakistan batsman Babar Azam

The trophy for the five-match series was unveiled by Sarfraz Ahmed - the captain of the Pakistan cricket team - alongside Sri Lanka's Upul Tharanga.

Thursday evening brought with it the trophy exhibiting ceremony of the Pakistan-Sri Lanka One Day International (ODI) series - organised at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. This will be Pakistan's first ODI since winning the Champions Trophy, where they beat India in the final in June.

Sri Lanka had won both the matches in the two-Test series that ended last Tuesday.

"Our one-day team is balanced and our record is quite good".

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed made a decision to go with Ahmed Shehzad in place of the rested Azhar Ali. "We will have some senior players in the squad [this time] and I hope we play better cricket [this time]", he said. Pakistan will instead rely on fast bowlers Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees, and Junaid Khan in the XI.

Pakistan´s loss in the Test series was their first in United Arab Emirates in 10 attempts since they were forced to play at a neutral venue amidst security fears sparked after 2009 attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore.

Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the series due to a shin injury.

On top of that, Sri Lanka endured nightmarish ODI series in South Africa and India, earlier this year.

"We lacked consistency. We didn´t bat, bowl or field well".

The remaining matches will be held in Abu Dhabi (October 16 and 18) and in Sharjah (October 20 and 23).
