  • Usman Shinwari and Abid Ali makes his Test debut for Pakistan

It has been more than a decade since the last time Test cricket was played in Pakistan and now, finally, it is returning! Pakistan are set to host Sri Lanka, the last team to visit the nation for a Test series, in what promises to be a chance for both these sleeping giants to rise again. The hosts have endured a miserable 2019 so far in Test matches as they have lost all their games. A convincing series defeat by South Africa before the World Cup was a sign of things to come. In November, they were thumped by Australia as they lost both their matches by an innings margin. This could well be the best opportunity for Pakistan to arrest their slump as they return to familiar surroundings. Fawad Alam is set to make his return to Test cricket after an absence of almost 10 years, and in the build-up to this game, he himself has admitted that it feels like he is making his debut. Coming to the visitors, they have revamped their backroom staff with Mickey Arthur being appointed as the new head coach. They have had a mixed 2019 in Test matches as they lost against Australia, won against South Africa and drew against New Zealand. They will want to end the year on a high and as a result, have named a full-strength squad. Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis and Angelo Mathews have all been included for the 2-match Test series. However, Sri Lanka have been dealt a huge blow just before the start of the series as Suranga Lakmal has been diagnosed with dengue and has been sent home. This has left a hole in the bowling department and the visitors will be hoping that their youngsters step up. It promises to be a highly contested affair between the two Asian super-nations.
