Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the opening One-Day International between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium.
The 5th ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is expected to start at 14:00 Local and 10:00 GMT and 15:00 PKT.
Mickey Arthur, the Pakistan coach, made no secret of his intention of inflicting a clean sweep on Sri Lanka.
Since its ICC Champions Trophy 2017 triumph in June, Pakistan has won eight straight games and has been unstoppable in limited-overs games, having overcome the disappointment of losing the preceding Test series to the same opponent 2-0 to open up a 4-0 lead in this series.
Arthur hoped Fakhar Zaman, the opening batsman, would learn from his failures. “Fakhar is a really good player. What he needs is to learn and we continue talking to him.
So sub-par has been its batting that Sri Lanka has not reached the 250-mark even once in its last 11 games.
