ABU DHABI: Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal said on Wednesday that due to the retirement of Misbah ul Haq and Younis Khan, the visiting side will have an advantage over Pakistan in the three-match test series, starting from tomorrow.

Speaking at a press conference in a trophy-unveiling ceremony, Chandimal said: ?Misbah and Younis, both played great cricket throughout their careers, it is an advantage for the Sri Lanka that two strong players are not in Pakistani batting unit.?

The skipper said that the Sri Lankan team requires just one win to get a winning rhythm, adding that the team is focusing not on one match ? but on the entire series.

The Sri Lankan captain said that the team has not yet discussed its tour to Lahore.

Earlier, speaking at the press conference, Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed said that series against Sri Lanka will be challenging for the Pakistani team.

He said that he will tell the Sri Lanka players that Pakistan is a safe place and they should visit it to play the scheduled-t20.

Ahmed said that Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq will strengthen the team?s middle order batting, adding that legspinner Yasir Shah will play a pivotal role in the series. 

?I have learned a lot from Misbah and Younis. My team?s passion and hopes are high, we will certainly give a good performance,? he said.
