HAMBANTOTA, Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews has won the toss and elected to bat first in the second one-day international against Pakistan on Tuesday.

  
Pakistan leads the three-match series 1-0 after defeating Sri Lanka by four wickets in the high-scoring opening game last Saturday at the same venue. Pakistan had to make one forced change after middle-order batsman Younis Khan returned home due to death of his nephew. He was replaced by opening batsman Sharjeel Khan.
   
Sri Lanka brought in all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna in place of Dinesh Chandimal, who scored only six runs in his team's total of 275-7 in the previous game.
 
   
Lineups:
   
Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (captain), Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Thisara Perera, Ashan Priyanjan, Seekkuge Prasanna, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga.
   
Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Sharjeel Khan, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Umar Akmal, Fawad Alam, Sohaib Maqsood, Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan.
