Pakistan vs Sri Lanka (PAK vs SL) Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: Pakistan will host Sri Lanka for the first match of their three-match ODI series in Karachi on Friday. This is the first time since Sri Lanka’s team bus was attacked in Lahore in 2009 that a foreign team will conduct a two-week tour of Pakistan. Major teams have avoided Pakistan since that ambush, which killed eight people and injured several players. Only four players in the present squad had previously toured Pakistan when Sri Lanka played a one-off Twenty20 in Lahore in 2017.
Sarfaraz Ahmed will lead Pakistan in an ODI for the first time at home since being appointed skipper in 2017, and 12 of the 16 players in the Pakistan squad have never played an ODI match at home. Sarfaraz wants it to be a special occasion. “This is my home city, so this will obviously be memorable,” he said.

karachi hosts a one-day international for the first time in 10 years when Pakistan take on a depleted Sri Lanka on Friday, furthering the country’s revival in international cricket.
“History will be made on Friday when Karachi will host the first ODI,” said Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.
“We must thank the Sri Lankan team for touring us.”
Teams have been reluctant to visit the cricket-mad country since a militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009.
The attack forced Pakistan to play all their “home” Tests and most of their short-form games in the United Arab Emirates with Zimbabwe becoming the first team to return to Pakistan in 2015.
That tour was followed by a Twenty20 series by a World XI in 2017, a one-off T20 match against Sri Lanka that same year, and the West Indies for a Twenty20 series in Karachi in 2018.
The current tour — comprising of three one-day internationals and as many Twenty20s — was tainted by the withdrawal of 10 Sri Lankan players who cited security fears.
