Neither Pakistan or Sri Lanka would have expected the Test series to go the way it did. Pakistan hadn’t lost a Test series at their adopted venue in UAE since 2010 and then came a beleaguered Sri Lanka which not only ended that spell but did so convincingly. The fact that Sri Lanka came into the series on the back of a spanking by India would have surely hurt their confidence when they made the journey to UAE. But the islanders emerged victorious including in their first day-night Test.
The focus now shifts to limited over matches with the first ODI to take place in Dubai. Keeping the format into consideration, last time Pakistan played a 50-over game, they beat India to lift the ICC Champions Trophy. On the other hand, Sri Lanka were blanked 0-5 by India in the ODI series for a dismal recent record.
