The decision was taken mutually by both the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in order to ensure the ground staff get an additional day to ensure the playing conditions are better after the first match was washed out due to rain on Friday (27).

Mumbai: After Pakistan won the third One Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka, the team clinched the series 2-0.

Thus the tourists have everything to play for at the National Stadium here on Wednesday as they bid to prevent Sarfraz Ahmed's charges from clinching the One-day global leg of this limited-overs tour.

Abid drove 10 well-timed boundaries in his 67-ball innings and looked set for his second hundred in his fourth ODI before he was trapped leg-before by spinner Wanindu Hasaranga.

Wicketkeeper batsman Bhanuka will make his one-day global debut.

Chinese tech companies oppose US blacklisting
US futures fell after China said it strongly opposed the American decision to blacklist some of its technology firms. This means US companies will require approval to do any kind of business with the 28 entities .

In any truncated series like this one between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the prospects of opposing teams tinkering with their respective playing XIs remain slim, particularly for the side trailing.

Earlier, recharged opener Danushka Gunathilaka scored a career best century to lift Sri Lanka to a challenging 297-9.

Gunathilaka hit 16 fours and a six in an innings that was finally ended in the 45th over when he was removed by a Mohammad Amir yorker.

For Sri Lanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Isuru Udana and Oshada Fernando made way for Minod Bhanuka, Lakshan Sandakan and Angelo Perera.

Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain), Babar Azam (vice-captain), Ahmed Shehzad, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Umar Akmal, Usman Shinwari, Wahab Riaz. Following the ODIs, the two teams will play a three-match T20I starting October 5.
