DAMBULLA, Sri Lanka - After losing the three-match Test series, Pakistan is still looking for the first win of its Sri Lanka tour as the teams prepare for a five-match one-day international series that starts today.

Sri Lanka remain wary of the tourists, who have enjoyed more success at the shorter version of the game. "We need to forget everything and move forward," Pakistan captain Younis Khan said on the eve of the first match at Rangiri Dambulla Stadium.

Pakistan has been boosted by the return of players who were involved in the Indian Cricket League. Opener Imran Nazir and fast bowler Rana Naved return to the squad while Mohammad Yousuf and Abdul Razzaq have been part of the Test squad after pulling out of the league. - Sapa-AP
