Sri Lanka 236 in 49.2 overs (Dickwella 73, Junaid 3-40, Hasan 3-43, Amir 2-53) vs Pakistan
Sri Lanka saw off the new ball, kept control of their innings, maintained a steady run-rate and dominated for large parts of their innings. Yet, they were bowled out on 236, well below the par score, owing to a sensational four-over burst from Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan. The two left-armers ripped the heart out of the Sri Lankan middle order as they went from 161/3 to 167/7.
It was superb fast bowling, just like their display against the Proteas. Sri Lanka crawled over the 200-run mark thanks to a useful knock from Suranga Lakmal.
Sri Lanka's bowling has been below par for the entire series and they need a lion-hearted performance on the field to defend this total.
