DUBAI: Pakistan will square off against Sri Lanka in the second test here at the Dubai Cricket Stadium on Wednesday (tomorrow), ARY News reports.
Both teams are expected to make changes to their playing XI. Rahat Ali, who showed a dismal performance in the first test, is likely to be replaced by spinner Abdul Rehman or pacer Mohammad Talha.
Surprisingly Pakistani spin maestro Saeed Ajmal and the prolific Sri Lankan batsman Mahela Jayawardene could not perform better in the first test.
Green Shirts will be relying on two of its most senior players Misbah-ul-Haq and Younus Khan. Mohammad Hafeez also made a remarkable comeback in the test side after scoring an unbeaten 80 runs.
It remains to be seen who the fortune favours in the test match which is likely to be played on a spinning track. Both teams are optimistic to win the test match and take lead in the series.
