Sri Lanka are set to begin their tour of the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan with a two-game test series. The first of these matches is scheduled to be played from September 28 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Live telecast will begin at 10 AM local time each day of the match.
Azhar Ali has a test average of 63.27 at this ground. He scored two centuries against the West Indies in Pakistan’s last test series and the team will look to him to score the big runs here. Babar Azam and Sarfraz Ahmed are two other vital cogs in this batting lineup. Mohammad Amir will be threatening due to his ability to swing the new red ball both ways.
Pakistan have lost seven of their last nine test matches which is enough to say how badly they have been performing in red-ball cricket of late. This year, they have lost two and won as many from four matches. Pakistan’s last encounter was in the West Indies against the hosts which they won by 101 runs.
