4

Wasim to Gunathilaka, FOUR, looks to slog, the ball takes the thickish outside edge and runs away to the third man fence for a four. Good enough start for Lanka

W

to Munaweera, out Bowled!! strikes! The ball hardly moved in, maybe a little and the batsman misses the line of the ball for the off-pole to be pegged back. The crowd erupts. Lahore has come alive. That was on a length and it straightend after pitching to explode into the woodwork after the inside edge was found. Munaweera b 1(4)

W

Wasim to Samarawickrama, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Unlucky! Looks to shuffle across his sticks, exposes them and then slog sweeps it aerially but finds the man at deep square leg. Wasim has a few words of advice for the batsman as he walks off. He is all pumped up and so are the Pakistanis. The shot was on but the placement was abominable. Samarawickrama c Babar Azam b Wasim 4(7)

4

to Udawatte, FOUR, wristy whip into the on-side and that has run away! Awesome timing on that. Waited on the ball and just a mere touch sends it racing across the turf

W

to Gunathilaka, out Caught&Bowled!! That is a pearler! takes a superb return catch. That was hacked back and the bowler takes it with both hands right in front of his face. Pakistan can do nothing wrong at Lahore. The crowd is going berserk. The batsman backed away to nail the drive but failed to keep it down and in return paid the penalty. Gunathilaka c and b 9(7) [4s-1]

4

Wasim to Shanaka, FOUR, flattish ball outside off and the batsman punches the drive down the ground. Just a reminder of the quick outfields in Pakistan was that shot. Mid-off had no chance

4

Wasim to Shanaka, FOUR, chips down the track and slogs the ball away off the inner half of the bat. Babar at deep mid does well to stop it and then flick it back but is it good enough? I don't think so. The foot was over the line and he was touching the ball at the same time

4

to Shanaka, FOUR, the ball angles away on a fuller length and the batsman plays the square drive to perfection. Threads the ball into the gap and a four it is

6

Khan to Shanaka, SIX, slog swept and that goes the distance! He knelt down, fetched the googly from the sticks and tonked it over deep square for a sixer. Powerful hit

6

Khan to Shanaka, SIX, bottom handed smack down the ground! That was well tossed up and the batsman got under it to muscle it down the ground over long-on for a maximum. Second six of the over

W

Ashraf to Udawatte, out Caught by Babar Azam!! The deceptive bumper does it. Is late on the pull and the ball takes the top-edge and lands into the hands of the man at mid-wicket. That was some skid off the wicket that produced the wicket. Lanka into trouble again. Udawatte c Babar Azam b Ashraf 11(13) [4s-1]

4

Wasim to de Silva, FOUR, backs away and cracks the drive through the off-side for a four. That was really hit hard

4

Khan to Shanaka, FOUR, blasts the flighted ball down the ground over the bowler's head for a four

4

Khan to Shanaka, FOUR, slog sweep now! He is taking Khan for some special punishment. Split the gap between long-on and deep mid for a four

6

Khan to Shanaka, SIX, OLLLLLAAALLAAAH! He has smoked that! Got under the flighted ball and muscled it high and handsome over long-on to bring up his maiden T20I fifty!

W

Ashraf to Shanaka, out Caught by Imad Wasim!! Length ball and he skies it up in the air for the man in the deep to take it. Pakistan get the big fish and the danger man with that. Shanaka had to go for it and he looked to biff it down the ground only to sky it and it was taken at the mid-wicket region. Shanaka c Imad Wasim b Ashraf 54(36) [4s-5 6s-3]

W

to de Silva, out Bowled!! Sizzler of a yorker and the ball blasts the base of the sticks. The batsman backed away and tried to squeeze it out only to miss it. gets another one and Lanka are slowly getting out of the contest, if already they were not out of it. Superb delivery from the speedster. de Silva b 21(20) [4s-1]

4

Ali to Perera, FOUR, short ball, pulled away, into the on-side and it splits the gap between mid-wicket and long-on for a four. That was not timed well but goes away into the gap

W

Ali to Perera, out Caught by Shadab Khan!! Slogs the ball away and the catch is taken at long-on. That big shot was the need of the hour but he never got it off the meat of the bat to be taken in the deep. The skipper goes and there goes the hope of even a Lankan fight. Perera c Shadab Khan b Ali 10(12) [4s-1]

4

Ashraf to Pathirana, FOUR, driven down the ground, powerfully done and it beats the dive from mid-off to go away into the fence. They need much more than this. 59 still needed

4

Ali to Pathirana, FOUR, bowls it short, the ball sits up and has been smacked into the on-side for a four. That was done with brute force

6

Ali to Prasanna, SIX, Has that gone out of Lahore? The bat turned into a rocket launcher into the pull and the ball touched the heavens en route to the deep mid-wicket stands. Something to cheer for the Lankan fans

6

Ali to Prasanna, SIX, another heavenwards hit and that has gone out of the park! That was short, and the batsman smacked the pull away over mid-wicket for a maximum. Too late for the fireworks but the Lankans won't mind it

W

to Pathirana, out Caught by Hafeez!! Another sky-ball and this time has been taken. The roll of the fingers on the ball and the batsman tried to heave it away but only got height and no distance for the man at mid-wicket to take it. A formality of a wicket. amongst the wickets is something heartening for the Pakistanis. Pathirana c Hafeez b 14(10) [4s-2]

W

to Prasanna, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Length ball cutting across the right-hander and it takes the edge on the way to the keeper. exults in delight and so does the Lahore crowd. These are the best figures for in a T20I. Still on a hat-trick. Prasanna c Sarfraz b 16(8) [6s-2]

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, Zaman off and running. So are Pakistan and their supporters. Plenty of flags around. shorts with a slanter outside off, Zaman throws his bat at that and slashes off the outside edge over the cordon. Third man is square and he had no chance of cutting that off

4

to Umar Amin, FOUR, fabulous shot! Superb use of the feet. Amin is quick to leave his crease and give himself some room, gets right to the pitch of the flighted delivery and lofts it handsomely inside out over extra cover for a boundary

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, poor from . He just had to keep it tight and not try anything different. The slower delivery is drag down and hurled down leg, Zaman makes room and helps it along the way with a pull, short fine's dive is in vain

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, not sure that is where he intended to hit that. But a four will do as it ends the powerplay. Races down the wicket and has to reach out for this delivery, dragged over Amin and to the long-on fence. He was looking more straight and long-off

OT

to Umar Amin, 1 run, well-directed short delivery, Amin had to fetch the pull from outside off, splices it over the square leg umpire. It was in the air for a while but dropped well short of the fielder

W

to Fakhar Zaman, out Bowled!! Zaman stands his ground. The umpires come together and send it upstairs. Soft signal is OUT. He feels Samarawickrama removed the bails. Two replays and both show the ball kissing the off-stump. The quicker slider from , Zaman hangs back and misses the cut. It was very close to the off-stump and since it just shaved the stick, Zaman was reluctant to go. The parntership is broken and has his maiden T20I wicket. Fakhar Zaman b 31(27) [4s-3]

4

to Umar Amin, FOUR, bad delivery and deserved the treatment. Short and down leg, Amin sinks to one knee and plays the half sweep/pull past the diving short fine. A real hit-me delivery and Amin capitalized

6

Silva to Umar Amin, SIX, welcome to Lahore. First ball for the butant and Amin sends him sailing into the sightscreen. Flighted livery on off, Amin comes down the track and hammers the loft straight down the ground

4

Silva to Umar Amin, FOUR, costly start for Chaturanga. Rank long hop and Amin says thank you very much, rocks back quickly and dismisses it with a pull over mid-wicket, almost went the distance

D

to Umar Amin, 1 run, dropped! Tough one, but once you get hands to the ball, it will go down as a drop chance. Tossed up delivery around off, Amin chips the loft and for his liking hit it too well, Chaturanga was late to set off from long-off, but got there with a slide and both hands, the ball didn't stick

W

to Umar Amin, out Caught by Perera!! Good running catch from the skipper. Sri Lanka needed a wicket and provides them that. He robs this length delivery of all the pace and lands it on a length, Amin decides to heave it to cow corner, deceived by pace he skies it wide of long-on. Thisara has a lot of ground to cover and he does extremely well to hang on with both hands. Umar Amin c Perera b 45(37) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, brilliant way to end the over. Full and outside off, Azam strides forward and drives it square on the off-side. The man sweeping is at deep extra and he could only fetch the ball from the rope

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, pressure releasing shot from Malik. They had only got singles in the last two overs and needed a big hit. Length ball outside off, Malik goes deep in the crease and smacks it over long-off. Not quite off the middle but enough to clear the rope

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, brilliance from Malik. He knew that the angle was going to take it outside off, set himself for it and hammered it cleanly over extra cover, one bounce four this time

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, fullish and outside off, Malik stays leg-side of the ball, clearing in his front leg and carving it over backward point. The length was ideal to play that and Malik is turning it on for Pakistan

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, the extra ball costs Sri Lanka four runs. Full and outside off, Azam wanted to smash it back down the ground, the thickish outside edge runs down to the third man fence. Streaky but effective!

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, another full toss and this time Malik makes him pay. The line was outside off and is slapped square on the off-side, no chance for the man sweeping to cut that

OT

to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, very full and on the stumps, Malik bunts it down to long-on

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, sloppy. is not happy and Thisara is fuming. Full toss around off, Malik swings it away along the turf to deep mid-wicket, the fielder lets the ball escape through his legs

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, lovely! This is tremendous batting. Malik went deep in the crease expecting the full and wide delivery, he then crouches a bit and opens the bat face to drive it in front of square, beating deep point comfortably

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, fifty for Malik. A game-changing innings this. The crowd have enjoyed it and are applauding. Malik reciprocates by waving his bat around. gifts a juicy full toss and Malik accepts gleefully, swings it hard and over cow corner fence

W

to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by de Silva!! Malik walks off to an ovation. He's played his part. Might have missed out there, but nonetheless his knock has given Pakistan the momentum. Another full toss from , just like the previous one, Malik this time could not get under it for some reason, struck it hard enough but picked out the deep mid-wicket fielder. Chaturanga hangs on to the wet ball. Shoaib Malik c de Silva b 51(24) [4s-5 6s-2]

6

to Fahim Ashraf, no ball, SIX, poor from . First he oversteps and then offers a freebie to the new batsman - a full toss outside off, Ashraf does not miss out and smacks the loft over wide long-off

6

to Fahim Ashraf, SIX, Thisara is not a happy man. dishes out another full toss and is punished. This was right in the slot for Ashraf to club it over the deep mid-wicket fence. Went high and cleared the rope with ease
