Another series defeat looms large


Sri Lanka have failed to reproduce their fine touch in Tests against Pakistan into the ODIs and need to win today’s third game here at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in order to stay in competition in the five match series. Sri Lanka’s ODI form has been disastrous this year having only won four of their 23 games and there is very little sign of it improving as well.

Sri Lanka’s batting woes continued as they failed to chase down a target of 220 in the second game here in Abu Dhabi on Monday. With Milinda Siriwardene batting at number six, the batting has been badly exposed and Sri Lanka have little option as they only have one reserve batsman in the sidelines in Chamara Kapugedera.
