Sri Lanka suffers third 5-0 ODI whitewash for year

Monday: Sri Lanka’s shambolic batting in the five-match one-day international series was laid to rest at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium yesterday when they were rolled over for a mere 103 runs to lose the fifth and final ODI to Pakistan by nine wickets and with it suffer their third 5-0 whitewash of the series for the year.


Shell-shocked Sri Lanka slide to another defeat

SHARJAH, Friday – Despairing Sri Lanka were looking from where they can find an answer to plug the hole that is leaking out so many defeats for them in the ODI format as they slid to their eleventh consecutive loss when Pakistan beat them by seven wickets in the fourth match to take a 4-0 lead in the five-match series at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday. Even a change of venue to Sharjah that holds the world record for the most number of ODIs hosted at one venue in the Guinness Book Of World Records (227 matches) could not bring Sri Lanka that change of fortune despite the shorter boundaries in comparison to Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The only thing they won was the toss for the third time in four attempts and taking first lease of a flat Sharjah track full of runs made a royal mess of it succumbing to 173 all out in 43.4 overs.
