Pakistan want to end an eight-year drought without a Test win in Sri Lanka and Waqar's return and his familiarity with the younger players might assist in controlling their output better. Opener Khurram Manzoor bagged a pair after his 146 in Abu Dhabi. Left-arm seamer Rahat Ali accounted for only two wickets against Sri Lanka in the UAE after snagging a second five-wicket haul in Zimbabwe. Azhar Ali carried eight innings with scores of less than 20 before spearheading the Sharjah coup.
1.Mahela Jayawardene's average of 32.16 against Pakistan is his lowest against all Test-playing nations
2.Pakistan, who had floated to third place in the ICC rankings despite not playing any cricket since January, will drop to sixth if they lose the series
