Pakistan v Sri Lanka T20I Series - 1st T20I

Pakistan v Sri Lanka

Pakistan won by 3 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

1.6

Sohail Tanvir to Dilshan, OUT, once again Tanvir offers width and this time Dilshan is unlucky as he cuts this one uppishly to point, with the fielder moving quickly to his right to hold on to the catch. First wicket down and a big one as Dilshan can potentially be a dangerous commodity at the top

TM Dilshan c Ahmed Shehzad b Sohail Tanvir 7 (9m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sri Lanka 9/1   MDKJ Perera 2* (4b)   Sohail Tanvir 1-0-6-1

5.6

Saeed Ajmal to MDKJ Perera, OUT, plays all around this one that turns in to Kusal as Ajmal gets him stranded on the front foot, with Ajmal shouting a loud appeal, which the umpire confirms soon after

MDKJ Perera lbw b Saeed Ajmal 15 (30m 16b 0x4 1x6) SR: 93.75

Sri Lanka 41/2   LD Chandimal 16* (12b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 1-0-11-1

9.1

Shahid Afridi to Chandimal, OUT, traps him in front on the first ball as Chandimal plays inside the line, with the ball rapping the front pad. This one drifted just a bit to lull Chandimal into a false sense of security as he looked to defend

LD Chandimal lbw b Shahid Afridi 22 (36m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 59/3   KC Sangakkara 11* (9b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.1-0-8-1

13.4

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, OUT, and Sangakkara throws away his wicket to give Ajmal 400 international wickets. Looking to up the ante in these later overs, Sangakkara dances down to loft Ajmal, with the intention of going over extra-cover, but instead hits it directly to short cover, who holds the catch

KC Sangakkara c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 21 (30m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 95.45

Sri Lanka 84/4   AD Mathews 15* (14b 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 1.4-0-13-2

19.2

Sohail Tanvir to Mathews, OUT, Mathews looks for a huge six over midwicket, but this one just stays inside for Sharjeel Khan, stationed at deep midwicket, to hold on to the steepler

AD Mathews c Sharjeel Khan b Sohail Tanvir 50 (43m 34b 5x4 1x6) SR: 147.05

Sri Lanka 142/5   HDRL Thirimanne 22* (14b 1x4 1x6)   Sohail Tanvir 3.2-0-31-2
