Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Hambantota, Jun 3, 2012
Pakistan won by 23 runs

Kulasekara to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, Shehzad is gone. Dead plumb. Inswinger from Kula, on a length, and Shehzad is caught on the back foot and beaten. Hit right in front. When Kula gets the inswingers right and accurate, he is a tough customer

Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Kulasekara 6 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 11/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (7b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.1-0-5-1

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Hafeez has hit a straight drive to claim the wicket of Latif! Crisply hit back at Perera. This is going for four. But Perera gets a touch to it, and the ball hits the stumps. Latif is backing up, and hasn't had time to get back. They don't even call for the replays. The finger goes up, Latif goes out

Khalid Latif run out 1 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Pakistan 18/2   Mohammad Hafeez 10* (18b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 1-0-3-0

Lokuarachchi to Umar Akmal, OUT, and he strikes first ball. Akmal premeditates a paddle, Kaushal bowls a flat legbreak, and he misses. My first reaction says Akmal is unlucky, but I am still waiting for replays. I am wrong. This is a good decision. Length ball, pi6ches outside off, doesn't turn, goes with the angle, hits him in front of off. The lack of turn did him in

Umar Akmal lbw b Lokuarachchi 5 (13m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Pakistan 29/3   Mohammad Hafeez 15* (25b 2x4)   KS Lokuarachchi 0.1-0-0-1

Lokuarachchi to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Kaushal gets another. Soft dismissal. Short, on the pads, stays a touch low, hurries onto him, and he has hit it straight to shortish midwicket

Mohammad Hafeez c Thirimanne b Lokuarachchi 24 (43m 34b 3x4 0x6) SR: 70.58

Pakistan 41/4   Shoaib Malik 2* (3b)   KS Lokuarachchi 1.1-0-6-2

Perera to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Dilshan takes this one, but is still cross with himself for having dropped the previous one. Short again, but stays a little low. Malik pulls, and finds Dilshan to perfection. Dilshan throws the ball away in disgust, and doesn't even join the others in celebrating. Clearly disappointed with the previous delivery

Shoaib Malik c Dilshan b Perera 27 (47m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 103.84

Pakistan 109/5   Shahid Afridi 42* (27b 5x4)   NLTC Perera 3.3-0-23-1

Kulasekara to Yasir Arafat, OUT, bouncer, Arafat comes down the track, and cuts it in the air, straight to Dilshan at sweeper-cover. Dilshan still not emoting much. Arafat has at least brought Afridi back on strike

Yasir Arafat c Dilshan b Kulasekara 2 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 119/6   Shahid Afridi 50* (30b 5x4 1x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.3-1-11-2
