The Sri Lankan team is already in Pakistan for playing the T20I and the ODI series which start from today. Ahead of the first game, the Sri Lankan team was seen enjoying their time in Lanka. Now, Lahiru Thirimanna and Wahab Riaz were seen indulging into an on-field banter. The two players were seen sipping tea in their respective videos and exchanging pleasantries ahead of the first match. It was the Sri Lankan cricketer who first put up a video while sipping tea and expressed his excitement and said Sri Lankan cricket will be as good as their team. Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka, Cricket Score 1st ODI Match.

Whereas in response, Wahab Riaz hilariously posted a reply accepted the challenge. The two videos went viral on social media. 12 Sri Lankan players including Lasith Malinga, Dinesh Chandimal and many other big names had backed out from the tour due to security reasons. In 2009, the Sri Lankan team was attacked by a group of 12 terrorists as the players were on their way to the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore. Ever since there have been no matches conducted in Pakistan post this.

Talking about the first ODI which is hosted at the National Stadium in Karachi, the match is delayed to wet outfield and the toss is yet to happen. The last ODI in Karachi was played 10 years ago and needless to say, the fans and the home team is quite happy to have hosted a match after a decade.
