Pakistan claimed a 1-0 lead in the one-day worldwide series against Sri Lanka with an 83-run victory thanks to Babar Azam's century and fine bowling from Rumman Raees and Hasan Ali. Get live cricket score of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI here. Ahmed Shehzad will open the batting alongside Fakhar Zaman, and left-arm quick Rumman Raees will replace Amir in the playing squad.
Babar's innings was labored to begin with but, critically he prevented the type of collapses that have plagued Pakistan for some time.
Lahiru Thirimanne was the only Sri Lankan top-order batsman who played with any authority for his 53 as Pakistan took regular wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
He would add 64 with Fakhar (43) before the opener was beaten by Akila Dananjaya's googly a ball after hitting him out of the park.
Dinesh Chandimal dropped a tough chance at midwicket with Babar on 42 but in the next over Sri Lanka did break through as Mohammad Hafeez (32) fell to a Jeffrey Vandersay long hop.
With Pakistan looking for some inspiration at 128/3 in 28 overs, Malik (81, 61 balls, 5 fours, 2 sixes) walked in to show he has lost none of his touch and power despite his advancing years.
They didn't have the greatest of starts as Ahmed Shehzad (0, 12 balls) once again failed to make the most of the chance he was offered by the Pakistani think-tank.
Sri Lanka fast bowler Suranga Lakmal took 2-47.
