An opening One-Day International that Pakistan should have won comfortably was turned into something spectacularly close in Sharjah by Sri Lanka's eighth-wicket pair of Seekkuge Prasanna and Sachithra Senanayake.
In a humdinger of a match, Pakistan beat India by five wickets in the first Twenty20 International at Bangalore. Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik steered their side home, after the match see-sawed more than once at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first, something Indian skipper MS Dhoni said he would have done as well. For the visitors though, the decision didn't pay any dividends.
Pakistan have named their squads to tour Sri Lanka, handing the Twenty20 International captaincy to Mohammad Hafeez and confirming Misbah-ul-Haq as Test skipper.
Fast bowler Mohammad Sami and batsman Faisal Iqbal have also been handed recalls to the Test squad after lengthy absences while Misbah will also lead the One-Day International team.
