Warid Cricket Series - 3rd ODI

Pakistan v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 115 runs

10.1

Iftikhar Anjum to Jayasuriya, OUT, Gotcha! He has chopped it on to the stumps! Disaster gatecrashes into the Sri Lankan party. It landed on a length, outside off and shaped back in, Jayasuriya went for a cut, was cramped for room as the ball nipped back in, got an inside-edge and on to the stumps.

ST Jayasuriya b Iftikhar Anjum 19 (29b 2x4 1x6) SR: 65.51

Sri Lanka 62/1   WU Tharanga 34* (34b 5x4)   Iftikhar Anjum 1.1-0-1-1

12.2

Iftikhar Anjum to Tharanga, OUT, Anjum is on fire. Teasing line, full and outside off, moving away off the seam and Tharanga is sucked into drive, on the up, but ends up nicking it behind. Big wicket. Tharanga looked in complete command there.

WU Tharanga c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 40 (37b 6x4 0x6) SR: 108.10

Sri Lanka 73/2   CK Kapugedera 5* (10b 1x4)   Iftikhar Anjum 2.2-0-12-2

18.3

Iftikhar Anjum to Kapugedera, OUT, Anjum takes out another one. Short and well outside off stump, Kapudgedera's eyes lit up at the width offered and he went for an expansive cut but edges it behind and Akmal took a good diving catch to his left.

CK Kapugedera c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 15 (30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 101/3   DPMD Jayawardene 16* (17b 1x4 1x6)   Iftikhar Anjum 5.3-0-18-3

41.2

Mohammad Hafeez to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, tossed up around the off stump, Jayawardene goes down on one knee and tries to slog sweep over mid-wicket, misses it completely and ball hits the middle stump

DPMD Jayawardene b Mohammad Hafeez 83 (81b 7x4 2x6) SR: 102.46

Sri Lanka 225/4   LPC Silva 56* (73b 4x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 8.2-0-43-1

43.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Maharoof, OUT, Hafeez gets his revenge. Serves a low full-toss, on the stumps, and Maharoof drives uppishly, to the left of Hafeez who dives to take it. SL lose their fifth wicket. 240 for 5.

MF Maharoof c & b Mohammad Hafeez 10 (9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Sri Lanka 240/5   LPC Silva 60* (79b 4x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 9.5-0-54-2

44.4

Mohammad Asif to Lokuarachchi, OUT, Loku falls. It was full in length, around off stump, Lokuarachchi steps down the track, flicks, in the air and straight to deep midwicket.

KS Lokuarachchi c Salman Butt b Mohammad Asif 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 244/6   LPC Silva 61* (80b 4x4)   Mohammad Asif 7.4-1-62-1

45.4

Abdur Rehman to Silva, OUT, And now Silva falls. Death by aggression. Charges down the track, and Rehman quickly drags back the length and sends it outside off stump and Silva tried to play it across the line, gets a inside-edge and it crashes into the furniture.

LPC Silva b Abdur Rehman 64 (87b 4x4 0x6) SR: 73.56

Sri Lanka 252/7   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   Abdur Rehman 9.4-0-39-1

46.1

Mohammad Asif to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, OUT, brilliant fielding off the boundary and Prasanna Jayawardene is in trouble, TV Umpire called in and given out...came back for a two but Rao had moved quickly on the third man fence and threw flat and hard

HAPW Jayawardene run out 2 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 258/8   * (b)   Mohammad Asif 8.1-1-65-1

49.6

Iftikhar Anjum to Malinga, 1 run, OUT, sloged to leg and a run out as they try to come back for a suicidal second run... but Sri Lanka finish with a decent total

SL Malinga run out 11 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Sri Lanka 296/8   TM Dilshan 28* (14b 3x4 1x6)   Iftikhar Anjum 10-0-53-3
