Pakistan won by 26 runs
Played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
20 November 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Fernando to Imran Farhat, OUT, that's a really slick catch by Sangakkara! It was not a wicket-taking ball, down the leg side, meant to be flicked to fine leg, Farhat however could only glove it and Sangakkara anticipated it early, moved to his right and took it with one hand on the dive, he took it barely inches from the ground

Imran Farhat c †Sangakkara b Fernando 10 (29m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

Pakistan 18/1   Mohammad Hafeez 6* (20b 1x4)   CRD Fernando 0.1-0-0-1

Prasanna to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Just when a wicket falls in Johannesburg, another one falls here! Hafeez goes for ambitious slog sweep, he doesn't get the elevation to clear long leg and Chandimal takes the catch

Mohammad Hafeez c Chandimal b Prasanna 27 (67m 51b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

Pakistan 57/2   Younis Khan 17* (24b 1x4)   S Prasanna 2.2-0-8-1

Fernando to Younis Khan, OUT, and Fernando yet again picks up a wicket with a first ball of a spell, soft dismissal this time, he fails to read the slower ball, comes forward too early and ends up tamely scooping it to Mendis at short cover

Younis Khan c Mendis b Fernando 18 (44m 27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 62/3   Misbah-ul-Haq 4* (2b 1x4)   CRD Fernando 2.1-0-7-2

Mendis to Shoaib Malik, OUT, big appeal for a lbw and the umpire Zameer Haider gives him out! Massive googly by Mendis, Malik is trapped at the crease, he tries to rock back and play but the ball zips back in and traps him in front of the stumps, Malik thinks about reviewing it and discusses it with Misbah but he walks

Shoaib Malik lbw b Mendis 2 (26m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

Pakistan 69/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 9* (15b 2x4)   BMAJ Mendis 3-0-13-1

Mendis to Umar Akmal, OUT, another massive appeal! This time SL go for the referral, Haider thinks about it and says not out, Akmal goes right back at the crease and fails to pick the googly, the ball appears to hit him on the back leg in line with the leg stump, the third umpire confirms that he is gone and Haider has to reverse his decision

Umar Akmal lbw b Mendis 2 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Pakistan 71/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 9* (21b 2x4)   BMAJ Mendis 3.5-0-15-2

Mendis to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Communication breakdown! Gets an inside edge down to fine leg, Misbah set off but Afridi wasn't interested, loads of confusion and Misbah had no option but to scamper back, he was miles out of his ground, in fact he had given up

Misbah-ul-Haq run out 16 (59m 34b 2x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Pakistan 97/6   Shahid Afridi 18* (12b 1x4 1x6)   BMAJ Mendis 6-0-30-2

Prasanna to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, we have a review here, the ball lands on middle and leg and straightens, Sarfraz is a half stride forward and the ball appears to hit him in line with the stumps, the umpire gives him out but there was a doubt if there was an inside edge, Pakistan refer it, the umpire takes his time and upholds the umpire's decision

Sarfraz Ahmed lbw b Prasanna 10 (24m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

Pakistan 120/7   Shahid Afridi 28* (33b 1x4 1x6)   S Prasanna 7.2-0-27-2

Perera to Shahid Afridi, OUT, That ends a superb rearguard effort by Afridi! He chased a full and wide delivery, the ball clipped the outside edge and flew to Sanga's right, he held it with one hand, Afridi was uncertain whether he hit the ball on the ground but in fact it was his bat

Shahid Afridi c †Sangakkara b Perera 75 (87m 65b 4x4 3x6) SR: 115.38

Pakistan 181/8   Saeed Ajmal 13* (26b)   NLTC Perera 9-1-32-1

Fernando to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, the yorker consumes him, full and straight on the middle stump, Ajmal is rooted to the crease and plays all around it, on the base of the pad, plumb in front

Saeed Ajmal lbw b Fernando 20 (52m 37b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.05

Pakistan 191/9   Umar Gul 3* (7b)   CRD Fernando 10-3-26-3

Malinga to Umar Gul, OUT, the offstump is knocked out! Gul made a bit of room but was too late in getting his bat down on time, he tried to hit across the line

Umar Gul b Malinga 7 (19m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

Pakistan 200/10   Aizaz Cheema 3* (9b)   SL Malinga 9.3-0-38-1
