Pakistan trounce Sri Lanka to take an unassailable 2-0 lead and with it the series here in Abu Dhabi. Shoaib Malik will be a happy man, as will tons of fans back home. A depleted Sri Lanka looked undercooked in both games, and they'll hope to bounce back in the final game on May 22. Do join Sriram Veera then as he brings you the live commentary.

I apologize for the screw-up here at the end. We had some technical difficulties and thus were unable to bring you the proper ball-by-ball details during the last couple overs. For now, its good night and good luck from me, Jamie Alter, and I hope you enjoyed the coverage. Cheers!

and he's gone, looping up a well disguised slow, full delivery straight to Butt at cover

naah, not if they keep getting dot balls like that, as Maharoof fails to put one way outside off stump

Okay, so its 109 from nine overs at 9.08. What're the odds? Guess who's back? Sami's back...
