5 reasons why Sri Lanka was whitewashed by Pakistan
Breaking down Pakistan's demolition of Sri Lanka
For the third time this year, Sri Lanka has been whitewashed in a five-match ODI series. This time, at the hands of Pakistan. The team suffered the same fate against South Africa and India earlier this year.
Sri Lankan cricket is clearly going through a rough patch, but let us look at how Pakistan went about this demolition.
#5 Reliable all-rounders
Pakistan has always churned out fast bowlers. However, in recent times, bowlers who bat lower down the order like Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan have impressed with their timely contributions.
Experienced campaigners like Shoaib Malik (who scored 161 runs with two 50s) and Mohammed Hafeez (who bowled economically) performed well too.
The presence of such multi-tasking players augurs well for Pakistan.
