Pakistan Shaheens are all set to take on Sri Lanka A in the second unofficial ODI of the three-match series at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla on November 13, Saturday.

After losing the toss, Sri Lanka A were forced to bat first and they were pretty poor with the willow as only three batters crossed the double-digit mark. Only skipper Kamindu Mendis performed well for the hosts with a 34-run knock, helping Sri Lanka A post 102 runs in 32.2 overs.

Sri Lanka A will need more collective performances to bag a big win in the upcoming encounter. Though their bowling looks a bit sorted, they need to do well with the willow to give their opponents a tough competition.

Pakistan Shaheens, led by Saud Shakeel, were impressive right from the first ball of the game. All they needed was 21.2 overs to chase down a meager total after losing just four wickets. Opener Omair Yousuf was brilliant with his 38-run knock.

Pakistan will be keen to continue the momentum going into the second One Day. If they win this encounter, they can seal the series with one more game to go.
