We have a busy schedule this year and this series will help us prepare for the challenges ahead, especially the Commonwealth Games.
A Try to Overcome This Challenge:-
We have an exciting squad for both formats (T20 and ODI). Hot weather will be a challenge but as professional players, we will try to overcome it.
Sri Lankan captain Chamari Athapaththu said, “We are excited to play with a strong Pakistan team. Pakistan and Sri Lanka have always had friendly relations and I am sure the series will be played in good spirit.
The weather is hot and humid and it will test us but at the same time, it will provide us an opportunity to test our skills in challenging conditions.
We have a good balance of senior and junior players and we think we can do well on the tour.
