Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka, 1st T20I: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Hambantota, Jun 1, 2012
Sri Lanka won by 37 runs

Sohail Tanvir to Jayawardene, OUT, Tanvir strikes in the first over, Mahela, looking to work a length ball to leg after taking a couple of steps out, has spooned it high up in the air off a leading edge instead, and Shoaib Malik manages to hold onto the steepler as he tumbles to the ground at cover, he had to shield his eyes initially from the floodlights as he steadied himself for the take

DPMD Jayawardene c Shoaib Malik b Sohail Tanvir 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 2/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   Sohail Tanvir 0.3-0-2-1

Sohail Tanvir to Dilshan, OUT, Tanvir is smiling, it was a rather poor line, fullish and down the leg side, but Dilshan has flicked it straight to fine leg, he saw the line and went after it powerfully, but picked the man in the deep

TM Dilshan c Umar Gul b Sohail Tanvir 5 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Sri Lanka 11/2   KC Sangakkara 3* (4b)   Sohail Tanvir 1.3-0-3-2

Sohail Tanvir to Sangakkara, OUT, Tanvir's productive night continues, now he has Sanga chopping a drive on to his stumps, Sanga walks back in disappointment, he went for a big cover drive, there was some width available off the pitched up ball, but all he managed was a big inside edge

KC Sangakkara b Sohail Tanvir 19 (22m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 158.33

Sri Lanka 31/3   LD Chandimal 3* (5b)   Sohail Tanvir 2.4-0-9-3

Mohammad Sami to Chandimal, OUT, Sami strikes, Chandimal's heave misses, and Sri Lanka are in trouble now, Chandimal saw the length ball angled in, and decided to slog wildly over midwicket, but missed

LD Chandimal b Mohammad Sami 10 (24m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 39/4   AD Mathews 1* (6b)   Mohammad Sami 1.2-0-14-1

Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, OUT, it is not easy to hit Ajmal anytime, even harder to go after him under the pressure of T20, Angelo tries to slog with the turn, this one is bowled slightly slower, and strikes the stumps after going past Angelo's swipe

AD Mathews b Saeed Ajmal 9 (31m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.00

Sri Lanka 65/5   HDRL Thirimanne 17* (14b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 0.5-0-1-1

Saeed Ajmal to Lokuarachchi, OUT, he's not collected cleanly, but now Ansar hits the stumps with an underarm lob, they were going for a sharp single after a soft push on the off side, batsman dived at the other end, the lower end of his bat was in the air, and he was consequently out of the crease marginally, as the bails came off

KS Lokuarachchi run out 11 (11m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Sri Lanka 89/6   HDRL Thirimanne 30* (24b 5x4)   Saeed Ajmal 2.1-0-10-1

Saeed Ajmal to Thirimanne, OUT, connects well with the reverse sweep but hits it straight to Gul at short third man, he takes a sharp catch as he tumbles to the ground, it was a quick doosra from Ajmal just outside off

HDRL Thirimanne c Umar Gul b Saeed Ajmal 30 (32m 25b 5x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Sri Lanka 89/7   NLTC Perera 0* (0b)   Saeed Ajmal 2.2-0-10-2
