Sri Lanka take on Pakistan in first of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series in July 2015 at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium. Coming off the Test series, both teams will be keen to start afresh and look to get the combinations right for future games. All the five one-dayers have reserve days.
Sri Lanka are coming off an impressive ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 but will be wary of the task at hands. It will be the first time, they will play without the services of two of their stalwarts in Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene. They will hope the replacement step up and help Angelo Mathews, the skipper build a strong team.
Pakistan were whitewasted 0-3 in their last ODI series against Bangladesh and will wish to do better than that. Azhar Ali has been amongst the runs and he will hope the rest back him up and put up a good show. Pakistan lost the last time they played Sri Lanka at Dambulla, they were bowled out for 104 and Sri Lanka chased it down in time to win by 7 wickets.
