Pakistan is all set to face the Sri Lankan team in their first match of International T20 series, today at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. The green team has won the toss and has decided to bat first.
It will be none other than “Boom Boom Afridi” who will be leading the green shirts, marking his debut in the tour while Lasith Malinga is heading the Sri Lankan players.
The Lala team has not made any significant changes in the cricket squad. However, making his international debut in the Pakistani team will be the fast bowler Zia Ul Haq who has replaced the injured Wahab Riaz.
