Pakistan U-23s have done well to restrict Sri Lanka U-23s for 230. Sri Lanka U-23s didn't capitalise on the start which the openers provided to them, Pakistan U-23s bowler Usman Qadir kept on giving break throughs when needed for them, Jayasundera missed out on his century, he held the innings together with other few batsman. These small totals might be tricky on pressure matches, do join us for Pakistan U-23s chase in few minutes.
