Maheesh Theekshana gets Fit

“He’s fit and should play tomorrow, didn’t want to risk him in the first game against medical advice but he should be ready here,”. Naveed Nawaz was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo on Maheesh Theekshana.

“It’s simple, we expect to face similar pitches, they’re not going to change; it’s going to be batting-friendly mostly. We have to look at our execution and see how we could’ve pulled back another 50-60 runs. We have to keep the group positive, that is most important. It’s a long tournament, we’re going to be playing, traveling and doing other things for over a month. We just have to take the learnings from each game and move forward,” Naveed Nawaz said.

However, Sri Lanka won the toss and elect to bat first in the match against Pakistan in Hyderabad. Maheesh Theekshana is back into the team after the injury. Kusal Mendis did show up for another terrific performance. He had help from other batsmen as well to get 344 on board. Furthermore, the number one ODI batsman could not make much contribution to the chase. Mohammed Rizwan made his century.
