Pakistan skipper Azhar Ali has won the toss and elected to bat first in the second and final Test against Sri Lanka in Karachi.
The two-match series is currently locked at 1-1 after the first Test in Rawalpindi turned out to be a truncated affair owing to rain and bad light.
It is the first Test being hosted at the National Stadium in Karachi since February, 2009. Test cricket has returned to the country after over a decade with Sri Lanka incidentally being the last team to play a five-day game on Pakistan soil.
The hosts have made one change in their playing XI with leg-spinner Yasir Shah coming in for Usman Shinwari who has been diagnosed with typhoid.
