Babar Azam’s Pakistan cricket team will be eyeing a series whitewash against Sri Lanka as the two sides face off in the second Test beginning at the Sinhalese Sports Club ground in Colombo on Monday. Pakistan are 1-0 up in the two-match Test series after winning the 1st Test at Galle by four wickets last week.
Pakistan are currently in the No. 1 position in the new cycle of the World Test Championships (WTC) and will look to retain the top spot with a win in the second Test as well. Saud Shakeel was the star of the 1st Test win with his maiden double century and Pakistan should go into the second Test with the same side apart from possibly Hasan Ali coming in for spinner Noman Ali.
For Sri Lanka, batter Asitha Fernando is available for selection after recovering from a bout of dengue fever while pacer Dilshan Madhushanka could earn a Test cap at the expense of Vishwa Fernando. This is the first Test being played at Sinhalese Sport Club since 2018 and the home side have won three and lost three of their last six Tests at this venue.
