Over the years, Pakistan earned themselves the reputation of being an unpredictable side whose performances can swing from outstanding to ordinary in a matter of days let alone controlling things over a considerable period of time. But, that notion is gradually losing currency as the mercurial side seems to have found a unifying leader in the form of Misbah-ul-Haq. Ever since that man has taken command, they have looked a different unit altogether-players are enjoying their cricket, they are celebrating for each other’s success, even Shahid Afridi’s return has happened without any perceptible change in the team atmosphere.

Contrarily, Sri Lanka are fast losing steam, be it successive Test and ODI series losses against England and Australia or the more recent struggles against Pakistan, the Islanders seem to have lost their famed fighting qualities. The first match of the one-day series being a case-in-point, they just capitulated on a good batting pitch to be bowled out for a pedestrian 131.

One thing Sri Lanka will to have to think about is their shot selection which in the first match was pathetic, only one or two batsmen fell to good balls, the rest just played ordinary shots of missed simple deliveries. At the top, Skipper Tillakaratne Dilshan is the one who needs to lead with example- score runs through judicious shots. Senior pros Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene have to fire if their team wants to salvage some pride in the ODI series after falling flat on their face in the Tests.
