Overview

Misbah-ul-Haq saw his men register a thrilling victory over the Lankans as Pakistan registered a victory by four wickets with one ball to spare. The visitors won the toss and made Sri Lanka bat first.

The match was reduced by five overs each due to bad weather as each inning was of 45 overs. Sri Lanka, who batted first posted a total of 275 runs for the loss of seven wickets. After winning the two-match Test series 2-0, the confidence was very high for the 1996 world champions.

Despite losing four quick wickets with just 75 runs on board, a partnership in the middle by Mahela Jayawardene (63) and skipper Angelo Mathews (89) steered Sri Lanka's ship. Ashan Priyanjan's 39 from 15 deliveries helped the island nation post a total of 275 runs.

Just like the Lankans, Pakistan's top order had issues with the bat. Opener Ahmed Shehzad (49) was the only player holding his ground as wickets kept falling at regular intervals from the other end.

However, it was Fawad Alam's brilliant knock of 62, along with Sohaib Maqsood's match winning and unbeaten 89 that helped Pakistan seal a victory with one ball to spare. A win in the second ODI for Pakistan will see them seal the three-match series.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka would be hoping to bounce back and level the ODI series with a win on Tuesday at Hambantota.
