Pakistan aims to go into final with all-win record

LAHORE, OCT. 13. Pakistan is looking to retain its unbeaten run in the triangular limited-overs series with a win over Sri Lanka on Thursday at the Gaddafi Stadium in the last league game.

"We will play with a full strength side and try to win tomorrow's game," captain Inzamam-ul-Haq told reporters on Wednesday. Pakistan is the only unbeaten team in the series with 16 points from three victories — two against Zimbabwe and one against Sri Lanka.

"Our final is also against Sri Lanka and a win will give our players confidence that we have won two leagues games against this team," Inzamam said.

Pakistan's regular wicketkeeper Moin Khan has recovered from influenza after missing two matches and Inzamam gave strong indications that the veteran will rejoin the side.

Younis Khan kept wicket in the absence of Moin, but Inzamam said he would prefer to play with his regular wicketkeeper.

The squads: Pakistan (from): Inzamam-ul-Haq (captain), Moin Khan, Yousuf Youhana, Shoaib Malik, Abdul Razzaq, Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Sami, Yasir Hameed, Shoaib Akhtar, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Salman Butt, Rao Iftikhar, Bazid Khan.

Sri Lanka (from): Marvan Atapattu (captain), Mahela Jayawardene, Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillekeratne Dilshan, Saman Jayantha, Avishka Gunawardene, Chaminda Vaas, Upul Chandana, Farveez Maharoof, Nuwan Zoysa, Dilhara Fernando, Kaushal Lokuarachchi, Thilina Kandamby and Rangana Herath.

Umpires: Simon Taufel (Australia), Nadeem Ghauri (Pakistan). TV umpire: Zameer Haider (Pakistan); Match referee: Jeff Crowe (New Zealand). — AP
