It is usually a initial compare of a tournament, and it is too early to pull unconditional conclusions about possibly side’s prospects—but both side’s inability to finish off innings with a bat will be a regard going brazen in a competition.


A.M. Ahad/Associated Press

Sri Lanka had finished a tough workThirimanne had played with intrepidity and pace, with his 102 entrance from 110 balls, while Kumar Sangakkara (67) played around him.

But from 203-2 during 35 overs, usually prising out a serve 93 runs would have been sorely disappointing.

Pakistan’s genocide bowling and accumulation reaped rewards—spinner Saeed Ajmal gave small away, while left-arm seamer Junaid Khan hold his haughtiness in a genocide overs as well.

Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews prised out an dominant 55 from 50 balls for a visitors, though he found small support.

The Pakistan follow was solid though looked unfailing to be descending brief as Misbah and Akmal were joined in a center during 121-4. The tip 4 had all managed starts usually to give their wickets away. 

The span doubled a measure and upped a run rate, handling in 19 overs what it had taken a rest of a tip sequence 23.3 overs to post.

Akmal‘s liquid play was quite impressive, lofting 3 dispassionate sixes divided as Sri Lanka looked brief of ideas. But it was his exclusion that started a debase during 242-4 when Suranga Lakmal drew an corner to an aggressive shot.

Lasith Malinga afterwards picked adult dual wickets in an over—including that of Misbah—as Pakistan attempted to take him on. His differently typical dusk was unexpected remade into another five-wicket haul.

The diversion looked to have left from Pakistan’s grasp, as a notoriously crisp tail fell away.

They kept it alive until a penultimate over, though Malinga purify bowled Bilawal Bhatti to get a islanders off to a winning start.
