Sri Lanka opt to bat in first Test vs Pakistan
22 June, 2012
Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene won the toss Friday morning and elected to bat first in the opening Test of the three test matches series against Pakistan in Galle.
Mohammad Hafeez, who is leading Pakistan in place of the banned Misbah-ul-Haq, said it was great opportunity for him to represent Pakistan at the highest level. There should be something in this wicket for the pace bowlers early on." Junaid Khan is the second quick alongside Umar Gul. Misbah's ban means a Pakistan debut for 32-year old Mohammad Ayub, after 93 first-class games.
