Sri Lanka v Pakistan, 3rd ODI, ColomboWeerakoon Debut; Pakistan Opt to Bat13-Jun-2012 09:18:00 GMT
Colombo: Misbah-ul-Haq has finally won a toss and they will be batting first in third ODI against Sri Lanka at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Wednesday.
Pakistan have strengthened their batting too, bringing Asad Shafiq in for Rahat Ali. Premadasa was a notoriously bat-frst venue until Sri Lanka made a mockery of that reputation by winning the World Cup's quarter-final and semi-final chasing. For Sri Lanka, Weerakoon makes his debut right away, replacing Herath.
Chris Broad is officiating in his 300th international.
