Look Sri Lanka shock world number one Pakistan in first T20

Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who made a breezy 22-ball 32 on T20I debut, was pinned on the pads by a pinpoint yorker, skipper Dasun Shanaka holed out to long-on, and Shehan Jayasuriya was hurried for pace, splicing to Ahmed Shehzad in the covers.

This is only the second T20I match of Hasnain.

He was smashed around in his first two overs but he came back strongly in his third as he dismissed Rajapaksha. He returned with figures of 3-37 in his four overs.

Pakistan would have to win this match at any cost to remain alive in the series.

For Sri Lanka, Danushka Gunathilaka top-scored with a well-made 57 off 38 balls - his innings studded with eight boundaries and one six.

Ahmed Shehzad (4) was sent back to the pavilion in the fifth over, reducing Pakistan to 22/3. However, ahead of the opening encounter, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said that the inexperienced Sri Lankan unit can not be taken lightly after putting up a great fight in the 50-over format.

And there was to be no comeback, a collapse of 6/25 confirming Sri Lanka's victory by 64 runs.

However, they batted slowly and the asking rate soared. He laid the foundations for a big total with his 84-run opening partnership with Avishka Fernando. "We lost Babar early and that put pressure on the batting".

The side managed to score just six runs in the final over, taking their tally past the 160-run mark. His brilliant effort in the field helped the hosts restrict Sri Lanka to 165.

Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, says that no team in the world is weak in T20Is and credits Sri Lanka for playing better cricket.
