Pakistan aim for a series triumph at home after four years

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed will surely be aware of the fact that good young players like Mohammad Hasnain and Asif Ali are sitting in the wings, but with the series on the line, the hosts are expected to go ahead with the same XI which won the second ODI to secure a lead in this series.

The Sri Lankan management will scratch their heads to find a new player who can deliver properly in this match. Kasun Rajitha could be called back into the XI in place of Nuwan Pradeep who had an average outing in the last match.

Other than this, it would be a cruel decision if they drop any other player from the XI.

The pitch in Karachi was good for batting in the previous match and what Pakistan ended up scoring shows the true nature of the wicket. It is likely to hold its trueness for even the final match. Spinners could come handy in the day time.
