How & Where to Watch Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I

How & Where to Watch Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I

With just a modest target of 103 to get, Pakistan sure did make a meal of the chase after Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam departed early.

Sadeera Samarawickrama (23) was the joint top scorer before falling to seamer Faheem Ashraf before offspinner Mohammad Hafeez bowled a double-wicket maiden over. Pakistan white-washed the islanders in the five match series.

Malik hit four boundaries in his 31-ball knock, while Hafeez's 23-ball innings featured three fours as the pair added 39 for their unbroken fourth-wicket stand.

Sri Lanka were reeling from a 5-0 whitewash in the One-Day International (ODI) rubber and look set for more misery in the shortest form after being rolled out for 102 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. But they lost their last eight wickets for another 51 runs and were bowled out for their second lowest Twenty20 total against Pakistan.

Prasanna did crunch Hafeez for the first of his two maximums in the off-spinner's next set of six, but that was as good as it got as Hasan and Usman eviscerated the tail.




Meanwhile, Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur on Monday praised "the player" - as Sarfraz was not confirmed as the approached party till then - for reacting unbelievably.

However, it was later reported that around 40 contracted Sri Lankan players had signed their name on a letter addressed to the board which indicated that they were apprehensive about travelling to Pakistan.

"It was a complete team effort and we are doing everything well", said Ahmed, who now has ten wins in 12 Twenty20 internationas as captain.

Sri Lanka suffered losses with Pakistan continuing its attack and claiming seven wickets before the 15 over mark. Despite clean sweeping the opponents in the ODI series, Sarfraz did not wish to take the young Sri Lankan side for granted.

The much-hyped about return of global cricket to Pakistan will see Sri Lanka playing the final T20I of the series at Lahore on 29th October.
