    Plays of the Day from the first T20 international between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Dubai

  • SL wary of Pakistan's momentum

    Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara and captain Dinesh Chandimal are wary of Pakistan's form and confidence ahead of the first Twenty20 in Dubai

  • Afridi leads Pakistan to tense win
