The dead rubber third T20I between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is being played at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday.
ESPNcricinfo's pitch report: There is a bit of grass there on the wicket, which may help in keeping the bounce even throughout the duration of the game.
Sri Lanka XI: Danushka Gunath
ilaka, Sadeera Samarawickrama (wicketkeeper), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Angelo Perera, Oshada Fernando, Dasun Shanaka (captain), Wanindu Hasaranga, Lahiru Madushanka, Lakshan Sandakan, Kasun Rajitha and Lahiru Kumara.
Pakistan XI: Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed, Sarfraz Ahmed (captain and wicketkeeper), Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir and Usman Shinwari.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have made FIVE changes to their playing XI as Sadeera Samarawickrama, Angelo Perera, Oshada Fernando, Lahiru Madushanka and Lahiru Kumara come in place of Avishka Fernando, Shehan Jayasuriya, Isuru Udana, Nuwan Pradeep and Minod Bhanuka.
Three changes to Pakistan as Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal and Mohammad Hasnain have been replaced with Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed and Usman Shinwari.
Sri Lanka have won the toss and elect to bat
Meanwhile, kudos to the Australian women's cricket team who claimed their record 18th ODI win in a row.
Just a few minutes to the toss....
Gaddafi Stadium has turned pink today in order to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The question is whether Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal, who are yet to score something significant, would be given another chance in the side.
Sri Lanka will be playing for a clean-sweep in the three match series as they have an unassailable 2-0 lead at the moment. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be looking to avoid a humiliating whitewash on their home turf.
