Diplomacy and reassurances have overshadowed cricketing matters ahead of Sri Lanka-s second One-Day International against Pakistan at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. While Sri Lanka will be seeking to level the series following their 83-run loss in the opening ODI, a despondent cloud threatens to envelope the game in the wake of a delicate issue that has emerged in the last couple of days. As many as 40 contracted SLC players have written to the board indicating their reluctance to travel to Pakistan for the third T20I, which is scheduled to be held in Lahore later this month. While efforts are being taken to convince the Sri Lankan cricketers, the uneasy off-field happenings could affect the focus of the cricketers, whose immediate job at hand is the second ODI on Monday (October 16).

Cricket Betting Tips Free As far as the series is concerened, Pakistan staged a strong comeback following the 2-0 Test blanking, registering a comprehensive victory in the first ODI. As was the case in the five ODIs against India recently, Sri Lanka-s batting was a let down yet again. Despite half-centuries from Lahiru Thirimanne and Akila Dananjaya, Sri Lanka lacked a strong performance that could take them over the line. Their bowling was on the mark but not penetrative enough, adding to an inispid all-round show which highlighted their lack of confidence that has contributed to their poor run in ODIs in the last couple of years.

Cricket Betting Tips On the other hand, Pakistan-s Champions Trophy success a few months back has had a direct effect on their approach in the 50-over format as they displayed confidence in all facets. They were indebted to Babar Azam, who extended his rich vein of form in the 50-over format, and Shoaib Malik for setting up a hefty total which proved well out of Sri Lanka-s reach thanks to the efforts of Hasan Ali and Rumman Raees. Another clinical all-round display is what Pakistan will be hoping for in order to take the series further away from Sri Lanka-s grasp.

When: Monday, October 16 at 3:00 PM Local Time (4:30 PM IST)

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

What to expect: The wicket here is generally on the slower side, which means a lot of hard work for both batsmen and bowlers. The last time Pakistan played an ODI at this venue, they had scored in excess of 300 against West Indies and had restricted their opponents to 172 with spinners doing the bulk of the damage.

Team News:

Pakistan: Pakistan are unlikely to make any changes to the eleven that helped them register a convincing victory in the opening ODI, although Ahmed Shehzad-s struggle with the bat will be a concern for them. In case they want to bring in a replacement for Shehzad, Iman-ul-Haq, a promising left-handed opener, is an option.

Sri Lanka: Dinesh Chandimal had hurt his knee during the course of Pakistan-s innings and had left the field, but came out to bat later on. Kapugedera may get the nod and they might also leave out one of the quicks for a spinner.

Did you know?

- Sri Lanka have won only 4 of the 22 ODIs they have played so far this year. Their win perercentage of 18.18 is the second lowest among all teams in 2017, only slightly better than Windies who have a win percentage of 15.78.

- Hasan Ali has picked up five three-wicket hauls in succession. He needs one more to equal Umar Gul, who holds the record for most successive three-wicket hauls in ODIs.

- Niroshan Dickwella is 90 short of the 1000-run mark in ODIs. In case he reaches it in this game, he will become the fastest Sri Lankan to the milestone. Dickwella has played 25 innings so far while Sri Lanka-s current fastest to 1000 - Roy Dias - reached the milestone in 27 innings.

What they said:

"From a batting point of view, the currency of your batting is runs. If you don-t keep making them, the shop is going to close down at some point. We have to ask the batters to take some responsibility" - Nic Pothas, the Sri Lanka coach, admits Sri Lanka-s batting has been a worry for a while now.
