Pakistan are taking on Sri Lanka in the first of the five ODI matches in Dubai on Friday. Get live cricket score of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI here.

Fakhar Zaman (43, 45 balls, 4 fours, 1 six), scorer of that magical hundred in Pakistan's Champions Trophy final win over India, was impressive once again.

Getting past the Pakistanis in the ODI format of the game is way too hard for the Lankan Lions. Sri Lanka's last series was at home against neighbours India.

With Champions Trophy winning stars are back for Pakistan, the ODI series would be a thriller to watch.

Seven of the last nine matches at Dubai International Stadium have been won by the side fielding first. The likes of Ahmed Shehzad and Fakhar Zaman, meanwhile, opening the batting for Pakistan, have forged a formidable partnership this year. They only have skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, batsmen Haris Sohail and Babar Azam and fast bowler Hasan Ali from the Test series, while experienced allrounder Mohammad Hafeez and opener Ahmed Shahzad amongst the 11 who joined the squad.

Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga (capt), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Kusal Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, Milinda Siriwardana, Akila Dananjaya, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Jeffrey Vandersay, Lahiru Gamage.
