Pakistan vs Sri Lanka | Karachi to host Sri Lanka
Pakistan, led by Bismah Maroof, plays Sri Lanka in three T20Is and three ODIs. Therefore, the historic tour is the first time Sri Lanka’s women’s team has been in the country in 16 years. Also, skipper Chamari Athapaththu knows how important it is and is ready for a tough match. Both sides have had different starts to 2022. Sri Lanka didn’t qualify for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup earlier this year. Instead, Pakistan played in New Zealand, where they pushed a number of teams to the limit and beat West Indies. Even though they are in different groups, both teams are at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

“The weather is hot and humid and it will test us but at the same time it will provide us an opportunity of testing our skills in challenging conditions,” she said.
“We are excited to play a strong Pakistan team in its backyard. Pakistan and Sri Lanka have always enjoyed friendly relations and I am confident the series will be played in good spirit.”
“We are looking forward to an exciting series with Sri Lanka. After the World Cup we will start afresh with an aim of winning both T20I and ODI series. We have a packed schedule this year and this series will help us prepare for the challenges ahead especially the Commonwealth Games,” Bismah noted.
“We have an exciting squad in place for both formats. The newcomers in the two squads have a great chance of proving their worth when they get a chance to play.
