Pakistan vs Srilanka ODI Series

I will put Pakistan favourite for the ODI series against Srilanka. Although there is so much going on within the team still Pakistan have a better chance than Srilanka. Pakistan lost there Practice match against Srilanka A with not a huge margin, but the way srilankans belted the Pakistani bowlers all around the park is a sign of danger. The two new commers from ICL, Rana Naveed and Imaran Nazir both failed in the warm up but I think they will be included in the XI. Pakistan have a mix of fasinating players with Nasir Jamsheed coming back in the side and Imran Nazir another attacker Pakistan have a few other opening options to go with. Umar Akmal is another rising star, the brother of Kamran Akmal he displayed his worth in the warm up match scoring 120* of just 73 balls. Fawad Alam and Abdul Razzaq are in form Yousuf and Younis in the middle order, Misbah and Malik will have to work hard to keep there places in the team. Bowling has always been Pakistan's Strong point, In the fast bowling department Pakistan have Umar Gull, Muhammad Amir, Rana Naveed, Rao Iftikhar, Abdul Razzaq and Spinners Saeed Ajmal and Shahid Afridy.

My Hope: Pakistan must win the series by a margin of 3-2 Atleast!

Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Muhammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridy, Shoaib Malik, Fawad Alam, Rana Naveed, Rao Iftikhar, Umar Gull, Muhammad Aamir, Saeed Ajmal.
