Naseem Shah4040110.0092310
0.3 to BKG Mendis, what an absolute belter of a delivery that is. My goodness, that is filthy. Tailing in at 142 kph, seaming in, clips the pads and uproots off stump. Enthralling start from Pakistan, and Mendis is gone for a golden duck. 2/1
Mohammad Hasnain4041010.2584210
Haris Rauf402937.25114000
3.2 to P Nissanka, tried to swpie it back down the ground, but it ends up flying up towards mid-off, where Babar Azam takes a good catch running backwards. Miscued the shot, getting it out of the outer half of the bat, which meant it never got the distance on it he intended. 23/2
5.1 to MD Gunathilaka, but as soon as we say that, Haris Rauf knocks back middle and off stump to send Gunathilaka packing. 151 kph, that ball, and Haris reels away in celebration. Pakistan have struck another vital blow to Sri Lanka within the Powerplay. 36/3
14.5 to PWH de Silva, Rauf has the last laugh! Overpitched ball just outside off. Hasaranga backs away to play a square drive, but the ball moves away slightly, takes the outside edge of the bat, and Rizwan gobbles it up! A sigh of relief for Pakistan with Hasaranga showing off his wares. 116/6
Shadab Khan402817.0084000
8.5 to MD Shanaka, ahhh that's another really poor shot. Tried to sweep it across the line, and the ball was much too full to be pulled. Ends up missing it by a long, long way and it cleans him up. 58/5
Iftikhar Ahmed302117.0042000
7.4 to DM de Silva, another wicket! This was a rare ugly shot from de Silva, who opened up his body and tried to slap it over the bowler's head. But he never found the elevation, and Iftikhar takes a splendid reflex catch to send de Silva packing. 53/4

Dilshan Madushanka302408.00102041
Maheesh Theekshana402516.25102010
17.6 to Shadab Khan, Theekshana finishes his spell with a wicket and this is Shadab. Full and wide, Shadab tries to club a six over extra cover but he's sliced it. Gunathilaka runs in, grabs the catch, and slides to reduce his momentum. 120/8
Pramod Madushan403448.5082131
3.2 to Babar Azam, poor ball, but poorer shot, and a fantastic catch at short fine! Babar Azam's wretched Asia Cup comes to an end with a shot that encapsulates his tournament. It was tailing down leg, and Babar looked to help it towards the fine leg boundary, but directed it straight at fine leg, who jumped to hang on to a good catch. 22/1
3.3 to Fakhar Zaman, two in two, and Fakhar's on his way! He's dragged on to his stumps, and there's bedlam in the Sri Lankan supporters' contingent. Madushanka has two in two, while the look on Fakhar's face reflects Pakistan's feelings. Sri Lanka on top, and how!. 22/2
13.2 to Iftikhar Ahmed, mowed into the night sky! However, it doesn't have the legs for six. A 127kph delivery, full on off. Iftikhar clears the front leg and tries to hammer it for half a dozen, but he's sliced the shot. Fielder at deep backward square leg got under it, then waited nervously for the ball to come down, and then took a catch before taking a tumble onto the ground. Third scalp for Pramod Madushan Liyanagamage. 93/3
18.2 to Naseem Shah, slower ball just outside off. Naseem looks for a big shot over long off, but can't get his bat under the ball well enough. Toe-ended shot, and flat to long off for some catching practice. Fourth wicket for Madushan!. 125/9
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402736.7592100
16.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, key player gets key player! Rizwan had no choice at this point except to go for a big shot when he could've. Hasaranga tossed this up outside off and Rizwan attempted the slog sweep, but he couldn't hit it well enough to clear the fielder at deep midwicket.. 110/5
16.3 to Asif Ali, King Hasaranga! Takes out Pakistan's finisher with googly that crashes into middle stump. Second game in a row where Hasaranga has dismissed Asif for a duck. Full ball tossed up on off. In Asif's area for him to try the slog sweep, but the bat is nowhere near the ball. Hasaranga took his chance by tossing this one up against a new batter, and has earned his reward for his bravery.. 111/6
16.5 to Khushdil Shah, Hasaranga has the midas touch! Full ball on middle stump. Googly going away from Khushdil and he tries to slog against the spin. Sliced high up, short third man gets under it, and that's a third scalp in the over for #WOWindu. 112/7
Chamika Karunaratne403328.2561200
15.2 to Mohammad Nawaz, short ball, on leg stump. Nawaz tries to pull but the ball gets somewhat big on him. Nonetheless, he's got some connection, but clearly not good enough! Gobbled up by deep backward square well inside the boundary line.. 102/4
19.6 to Haris Rauf, Sri Lanka win their sixth Asia Cup trophy! Just one behind India's tally of seven. And that too with a wicket to seal it. Yorker on middle. Rauf misses, CK hits, the Sri Lanka squad runs into the ground and the players are celebrating already!. 147/10
