Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first in the 3rd and final ODI against Sri LAnka being played at Dambulla on Saturday, August 30, 3014.
There is one change in the Pakistan squad that played the 2nd ODI, Saeed Ajmal replaces Junaid Khan.
One change for hosts too, Dhammika Prasad comes in for Nuwan Kulasekara.
Misbah-ul-Haq said after winning the toss, “Of course we have been playing with him the last six seven years and he’s been delivering for us. In the last 10 overs we are having problems, that’s why we need Saeed.
We don’t want to cut our batting, because that is doing very well. We can’t really say anything about the pitch until we play”
Angelo Mathews says he not much worried about his teams fitness, “Not too concerned about batting or bowling. Looks a really good wicket. Body language has to be always up. We can be a bit rusty with the ball, Dhammika Prasad comes in for Nuwan Kulasekara”
