Sharjah, United Arab Emirates: Pakistan may finally go with two spinners against Sri Lanka in the third test from Thursday in search of the right combination to level the series on a flat pitch at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
   
Captain Misbah-ul-Haq thinks the pitch will take spin, and says, "it's a do-or-die situation for us, we need to be pro-active."
   
Pakistan also thought the second-test pitch in Dubai last week would take spin, but it hardly broke and Sri Lanka won to take a 1-0 lead.
   
Confident Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews aims to finish off the series with another win.
   
He says a draw is not on their mind "because it sends a negative message to the whole team, so we want to win it and win the series 2-0."
