Pakistan claimed a 1-0 lead in the one-day international series against Sri Lanka with an 83-run victory thanks to Babar Azam’s century and fine bowling from Rumman Raees and Hasan Ali. Sri Lanka were buoyant after earning a historic 2-0 Test series win earlier this week, but Pakistan got off to a promising start in the quest to gain a measure of revenge in the five-match ODI contest. Babar struck a patient 103 from 131 balls and, given excellent support by Shoaib Malik’s more rousing 81 from 61, propelled the home side to 292-6 in Dubai .
