Sri Lanka brought back its pace ensemble for the T20 series against Sri Lanka. The team went through considerable changes for the makeover. Apart from bowlers, the middle order is strengthened with allrounder options. The two changes in the team are the comebacks of Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Hafeez. Amir, the top paceman of the team is expected to head the bowling department to control Sri Lanka. While, Hafeez, will offer the middle order impetus in the batting line-up apart from adding up to the bowling ensemble.
PCB announced its T20 squad lately. Sarfraz Ahmed will lead the team. This will be a comeback of Pakistan squad after a hiatus on the format. Sri Lanka is one of the major teams that Pakistan will tussle. Earlier, the team also played against the World XI and a couple of stray tournaments.
A positive development associated with the tournament is the venue. Two of the three match of the series will be played in UAE, while the last fixture is scheduled at Lahore, a home ground of Pakistan. There were concerns regarding the decision, but as Sri Lanka Cricket came up with its massive support, the team agreed to tour the country. Back in 2009, team Sri Lanka was attacked in Pakistan.
Amir is back from an injury. The player injured his chin in the Test match at Dubai. He was rested from the preceding ODI series. Hafeez was also dropped during the team's previous campaign against the World XI.
Another player who was brought back to the ensemble is Aamir Yamin. Yamin is a bowling allrounder. This is the first time he will be features after a gap of two years. Pakistan us currently through a good form, with players reviving their plays. The team also played with considerable strength in the Test matches against Sri Lanka, even if it had to face some blues.
