The cricket played by Pakistan in one-day matches is going stronger and stronger day by day. They outclassed world’s top team in champion trophy and defeat their arch-rival India in the final of the champion trophy.
There is a serious change in the mindset of Pakistan team after champion trophy. Especially their bowlers, every Pakistan bowler make a serious impact with his bowling.
Now they clean sweep Sri Lanka for the first time and thus beat them by 5-0 in UAE. After winning the toss, Sri Lankan captain Upul Tharanga decided to bat first. But it was yet another bad day for Sri Lankan captain. Sri Lanka only manages to score 103 runs and this time it was young left-arm seamer Usman Khan which destroy Sri Lankan batsman and takes his maiden five wickets in international cricket.
Sri Lankan batsman did not manage to score runs in the whole series against the disciplined Pakistan attack. This is the successive series wash in ODI for Sri Lanka. Earlier, India also thrashes Sri Lanka by 5-0 in Sri Lanka.
Chasing a small target of 103, Pakistan batsman easily chased down the target by losing only 1 wicket. Fakhar Zaman scores 48 runs in 47 balls while Imam-ul- Haq remains not out on 45.
This series gives a lot of positives for Pakistan team. Hasan Ali once again proves his worth in the team. Fakhar Zaman looks solid in the opening. Babar Azam once again shows his class and score two back to back hundred in the first two game of the series. Debutant Imam-ul-Haq hits hundred in his opening game, Usman Khan takes his first five wickets hauls only in his 2nd match.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka looks in deep trouble. Cricketing days are not well for Lankan team. Their batsman struggles in the whole series and not look comfortable in a single match. The coming days will not be easy one for Sri Lanka as they played against India in India, the team which does not allow them to win a single match in the whole series and that too in their home ground Sri Lanka.
