Pakistan and Sri Lanka hope for some play after Karachi washout

With no toss, we couldn't see what Pakistan's first-choice XI would be in the absence of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik.

Surely, players like Abid Ali and Asif Ali will get opportunities while Haris Sohail seems like a certainty in the XI. Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, and Mohammad Hasnain are likely to make up the pace bowling unit.

The inexperienced squad of Sri Lanka will know that they will have their work cut out once they face the hosts.

Under the stand-in captain Lahiru Thirimanne, the visitors will have work with players who have been in and out of the squad for the past few years. It is not sure what sort of a combination would they bring on the field for the second ODI.

As it has been raining in Karachi for the past few days, it can be predicted that there could be some swing for the bowlers early on in the innings. But considering the stats of the group, it can be expected that the pitch will get much better for batting during the later stages of the game.
