The two sides met in December for a five-match ODI, which Pakistan won.  Although Pakistan won the series, 3-2, Sri Lanka comes into Fatullah with added confidence after their 3-0 whitewash of Bangladesh in last week's ODI series.

"We have played a lot against Pakistan and India," Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews said on Monday, via FirstPost.com.  "We know them and they also know us.  ... I think we need to show more good performance to go further.

"Beating Bangladesh 3-0 doesn't mean that it would be easier for us to win the Asia Cup.  It will be a tough tournament and there will be huge challenges."

Pakistan is the reigning Asia Cup champions.
