Pakistan cricket team is due to arrive in Colombo in the early hours of tomorrow on a seven-week tour of Sri Lanka which includes three Tests, five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals.
The forthcoming tour will be an equally important series for both the teams. While Pakistan will make every effort to capitalise on their last success in the UAE, Sri Lanka will go flat out to maintain its superior home record.
Pakistan made a clean sweep, beating Sri Lanka in Tests (1-0), ODIs (4-1) and T20 match when the two teams last met in UAE last year.
Pakistan also beat Sri Lanka in their Asia Cup qualifying round meeting in Dhaka last March.
However, Sri Lanka won both the Test (2-0) and ODI (3-2) series when Pakistan last toured Sri Lanka.
