All|Overs 1-50
W

to Fakhar Zaman, out Bowled!! There's the first blood. And gets it with a rippahh! Full, swinging in - ahh, an absolute dream. Zaman doesn't help matters either. Dances down, gets yorked but still swings his bat out on the hoick. Skids under the bat, and has his moment of stump cartwheel. Leg it is. Fakhar Zaman b 6(10)

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, dances. Away. Down. Frees his arms, taking one hand off it as well as he smears it through the covers

W

Pathirana to Babar Azam, out Stumped!! Done in. His 50+ average is set to take a serious beating tonight. The guile, the float and the turn gang up for a typically left arm spinner's dismissal. Azam casually walks out, is foxed by the dip as he drives airily. Misses and just cannot get back in time. Babar Azam st Samarawickrama b Pathirana 1(8)

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, gets the width, gets the gap. Moves away, opens up his bat face and places his steer to perfection. Behind point, in front of gully

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, this time he cuts it even more fiercely, beating backward point to his right. Oh there's no stopping that. Absolute bullet

4

Perera to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, ah, he got very lucky there. This has barely missed off-stump by a shade. Misjudges length, tries a cross-batted dab to third man, and there's no room either. It runs away off a thick under-edge into the fine leg boundary

W

to Ahmed Shehzad, out Caught by Samarawickrama!! Tickles it down the leg-side through to the keeper. So Shehzad's rusty stay comes to an end. Never looked in. Still, an unfortunate way to go. But this seems unlikely to derail Pakistan from their course. Ahmed Shehzad c Samarawickrama b 22(32) [4s-1]

4

Pathirana to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, oh brilliant. He's been in total command of this chase. A bit short from Pathirana, and Malik ensures that it doesn't go unpunished. Excellent placement with the cut to split backward point and short third man

4

Perera to Hafeez, FOUR, steps out and lifts it over mid-on. The bat twisted slightly, but he got enough of it to clear the field

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, slog-sweeps it in the air, would have been bothered for a while with deep mid-wicket lurking, but the fielder wasn't able to get to it. Bounces just short of the ropes

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, now this short ball is straighter, and Hafeez is able to belt the pull to the long leg fence

W

Wasim to Munaweera, out Bowled!! Cleaned him up. Fires one in on middle and outsmarts Munaweera's ugly cross bat swing. No conviction what so ever. Just a waft. You miss, I hit. Munaweera b Wasim 0(2)

4

Wasim to Gunathilaka, FOUR, floats it way outside off and Gunathilaka takes complete advantage of it, carves it over the infield on the off-side and gets the deserved result

4

Khan to Samarawickrama, FOUR, no respect for Khan. Samarawickrama comes walking down the pitch and hacks him over mid-wicket with swagger

4

Wasim to Gunathilaka, FOUR, one bounce and over the ropes! Gets across his stumps, stoops to one knee and smacks a nonspinner over backward square

4

Khan to Gunathilaka, FOUR, pace, what? Gunathilaka is unveiling all his innovative strokes. Shuffles across and takes Khan head on, a flashy scoop over short fine

W

Khan to Gunathilaka, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Khan has the last laugh. Looks to make use of the bowler's pace - stays way outside leg stump and slashes hard. Lost his shape while doing so. A thick edge and Sarfraz completes the formalities. Gunathilaka c Sarfraz b Khan 18(11) [4s-3]

4

Ali to Samarawickrama, FOUR, that should have cranked him up. A pacy bumper at the batsman, Samarawickrama was in all sorts of trouble and lost the sight of the ball while trying to pull. It nails the side of the helmet and flies over the keeper. No bat involved. The umpire thought there was some glove involved. Wasn't to be

W

Ashraf to Samarawickrama, out Bowled!! 137ks, leg stump goes cartwheeling. Ashraf is delighted, why wouldn't he be! Goes wide of the crease and darts it in and goes through Samarawickrama's defences. Done him for pace and angle. Samarawickrama b Ashraf 23(23) [4s-2]

W

Khan to Priyanjan, out Caught by Shoaib Malik!! Tries to be cheeky and holes out. Reverses his stance and goes for the flashy sweep, went with the turn but didn't time it as well as he would have liked. It loops up befoe dipping in front of backward point where Malik takes a well-judged catch. Priyanjan c Shoaib Malik b Khan 12(20)

4

Khan to Udawatte, FOUR, swept with authority. On one knee, got behind the line and nailed it in the gap towards fine leg

W

to Udawatte, out Lbw!! Loads it up slow. Very, very slow. Udawatte got forward and was too early on the shot; he was looking to work to leg, but was defeated by the lack of pace. Trapped plumb in front. Udawatte lbw b 8(9) [4s-1]

W

to Shanaka, out Stumped!! Beats him in the air and gone. is a canny customer and taking him on so early in the innings wouldn't be a good idea. Shanaka doesn't know all of that. Jumps out and is deceived by the lack of turn and pace. Stumped by a fair distance. Shanaka st Sarfraz b 0(3)

W

Ali to Sachith Pathirana, out Caught&Bowled!! All too easy for Pakistan. Sheer pace from Ali. Hurries onto the batsman and takes a dolly of a return catch. It got bit on Pathirana as he tried to play across the line. Perished for pace. Sachith Pathirana c and b Ali 4(5)

4

Ali to Thisara Perera, FOUR, connects this time, pulls a short ball and keeps it in the gap wide of mid-wicket

6

to Prasanna, SIX, picks the flight and lofts him high and handsome over long-on

W

Khan to Thisara Perera, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Curtains. Perera's logic to come in at number nine just hasn't yielded what it was meant to be. Another short snorter from , climbing into the nose. Backs away to pull, in utter desperation without any control. Done in by pace as he miscues a pull off the top edge - holing out only as far as Sarfraz. Thisara Perera c Sarfraz b Khan 6(7) [4s-1]

W

Ali to Udana, out Bowled!! Through the gate. Oh dear. This innings has been in shambles. Can't blame the number ten though. Udana gets away, looking to go through the line with a drive on the up. The ball jags back sharply off a length, skidding low and sending off on a cartwheel now. And then starts the generator. Udana b Ali 0(1)

6

Ali to Prasanna, SIX, that's the 100. With an absolute smash. Anticipates the bouncer, stays up tall. Gets just that. Swishes his bat violently and flats it just over a leaping backward square leg

W

Ali to Sanjaya, out Caught by Fahim Ashraf!! That's that. The slower sucker ball to follow up the short ones. Sanjaya gets sucked in, cannot keep the chipped up push down with the ball gripping on the surface and coming on slowly. The result - a balloon that lobs up to a backtracking mid-off. has a three-fer too..his best ever in T20Is. And Sri Lanka waste the last nine balls. Sanjaya c Fahim Ashraf b Ali 4(7)
