Pakistan Cricket Board and Sri Lanka Cricket had earlier mutually agreed to conduct a full-fledged series between Sri Lanka A and Pakistan Shaheens this year. They will take part in two unofficial Tests and three One-Day matches in October and November.
On completion of the unofficial Tests, the three-match One Day series starts on November 10 and will end on the 14th of November. Colombo will host all three matches of the series. Saud Shakeel will lead Pakistan A, whereas Sadeera Samarawickrama will captain Sri Lanka A.
This tour will be a good opportunity for a lot of cricketers to get back into form. Players like Haider Ali and Naseem Shah need a lot of consistency with the willow and ball respectively, and this series is a good platform to showcase their capabilities.
