In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at the Pakistan cricket team's exemplary performance against Sri Lanka in the middle east. 

Faras Ghani, sports editor The Express Tribune, says this win was much needed for the morale of the players, especially with the year the team has had. Spot-fixing accusations plagued the Pakistani side for the last year, but with this series win over Sri Lanka Pakistan has moved up the world rankings to the number five slot.

"Shahid Afridi is back, and so is Pakistan" says Ghani. He says Afridi not only plays a key role as an all rounder but also makes other players confident.
