Sri Lanka’s captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and chose to bat in the fifth and final one-day international against Pakistan in Hambantota on Sunday.
The match holds academic interest as Pakistan already enjoy an invincible 3-1 lead, but both sides will want to end the series on a winning note ahead of two Twenty20 internationals.
Sri Lanka made three changes from the last match, dropped sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga, seamer Nuwan Pradeep and Sachith Pathirana.
They were replaced by off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake, all-rounder Thisara Perera and fast bowler Lahiru Gamage.
Pakistan retained the same team.
