Pakistan's last tour to Sri Lanka was in 2015, which consisted of three Tests, five ODIs and two T20I matches. Pakistan had ruled over the hosts by winning in all three formats of the game back then. The Green Shirts will intend to emulate their previous tour, counting the better balance in the team this time around. Before the Test series begins, a three-day warm-up/practice match will take place from July 11 onwards. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Pakistan Bowling Sensation, Named DSP of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police.

Yasir Shah, senior spinner of Pakistan, is back in the Test squad who was sidelined last year due to a thumb injury in National T20 Cup. It is noteworthy that the leg spinner was key to success for Pakistan during the 2015 tour to Sri Lanka. He had picked 24 wickets at an average of 19.33. Pakistan is currently on number three of the ICC WTC 2021-23 points table while Sri Lanka have dropped down to number six.
