IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan

The Generator, Hassan Ali and The Young Gun, Shadab Khan are two very vital performers of PCT. They are emerging and are becoming stars in no phase. Hassan had 3 in the first, 1 in the second and a five wicket haul in the third one day international.

On the other pointer, Shadab Khan has been a star entertainer and a match winner in all matches. In the first odi he took 1 wicket, in the second ODI his all-round cleverness took Pakistan to glory, with the bat he was unbeaten on 52* and with the ball took 3 wickets and in the third ODI took 2 wickets. Lankans have to be very vigilant and should form an isolated strategy against them.

Lahiru Gamage and Akila Dananjaya

Lahiru Gamage is renovating into a perfect lethal pacer for the Sri Lanka side. His skill of taking wickets in no time and bowling strange deliveries has made him a match winning bowler. He will grow and will sooner convert a Lasith Malinga for the Lankans but they have to focus on him.

Akila Dananjaya, a young spinner and a recent addition to the Sri Lankan team, Akila is not a big spinner of the ball but have snakes like deliveries up to his sleeve that helps him in fooling the batsmen.
