Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

9.55pm So, Sri Lanka throw the first punch in the T20I series and consign Pakistan to a 64-run defeat. Gunathilaka laid down the marker with a blazing fifty, before Sri Lanka wobbled in the middle overs, and then landed some late blows to reach 165 for 5. Pakistan then unravelled quickly in the face of a challenging chase. Their reply was so muddled that at one point Ifthikhar and Sarfaraz were dashing towards the same end. Dew set in later in the evening, but Sri Lanka had enough runs in the bank. Pradeep and Udana came away with three wickets each while Hasaranga picked up two. The victory is Sri Lanka’s first of the tour and they lead this three-match series 1-0

Has the CPL become too predictable? Yours truly joins Srinath and Gaurav to chat on the goings-on in the Caribbean, why Trinbago and Guyana (captained by Shoaib Malik this season) keep dominating every year, and whom IPL franchises might be looking at

Danushka Gunathilaka, Man of the Match: It was a great win for the unit, and we did well in the one-dayers as well. Avishka batted well and it helped me a lot. When we go forward, we can win more games.

Dasun Shanaka, SL captain: It’s a great achievement for us without our top guns. Our openers were tremendous on this wicket. We had great belief in this team. All the credit need to go to the openers and debutant Banuka. The bowlers also started well.

That’s a wrap of this game. Thanks for tuning in. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Andrew Miller and Chandan Duorah. Goodbye and good night

ShivaRam : “Wow.. This has to be one of the worst t20 chases ever. Surely, Pakistan are a better batting side than this. “

Ali: “I don’t know what selecters and coaches see in Shahzad and Umar what fans don’t see. They are not international material they can perform good in local let them stay there.”

Khawaja: “Dropping Fakhar cost them initial start. Dropping Haris cost them momentum. Dropping Shinwari cost them early break throughs. Picking tried and tested players (Ahmed, Akmal) cost them match.

17.4W Udana to Mohammad Amir That is that! A second-string SL side tramples the No.1 T20I team. Udana sews up an emphatic win for the visitors. Amir makes some swinging room and mis-hits another slower ball into the lap of long-off OUT
Mohammad Amir c Gunathilaka b Udana 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
17.3W Udana to Shadab Khan Shadab holes out to Avishka at deep midwicket. Slower short ball outside off, Shadab, having shuffled across off, slogs this back-of-the-hand variation to the outfielder OUT
Shadab Khan c Fernando b Udana 6 (7b 1×4 0x6) SR: 85.71
17.20 Udana to Shadab Khan wide yorker, squeezed back to Udana no run

Tasmeem: “Lol, T20 rankings. Should they lose two series on the trott, they will be back being 5th or 6th.”

17.11 Udana to Mohammad Amir Amir moves away outside leg, Udana follows him, jabbed into the off side 1 run

Ranodeep Dutta: “Why drop Fakhar Zaman? He was in really good form in odis scoring 2 50s in 2 innings. Just when he was getting confidence the team management decides to drop him. Poor selection”

End of Over No.17 Pakistan 100/8 Last Over (10 runs)

16.64 Pradeep to Shadab Khan pretty full on middle, Shadab sizes it up and scoops it with the bottom hand over mid-off. Some belated cheer for the Lahore fans FOUR

Aabis: “Whatever’s happening now is because of the nonsense partnership of dots between Sarfaraz and Iftikhar. Sarfaraz should simply understand and accept that he does not have the calibre to play in the white ball cricket. He should stick with the red ball and let someone deserving to represent Pakistan in the shorter formats. He might be a good captain but he’s also occupying an important slot in the batting order.”

16.50 Pradeep to Shadab Khan short and outside off, Shadab swings hard and almost drags it back onto his own stumps no run
16.4W Pradeep to Faheem Ashraf full-toss on the pads, picked up and hit into the lap of Danushka at deep square leg. Ashraf adds to Pakistan’s collapse. The umpires check for a possible front-foot no-ball, but Pradeep is okay on that count as well. Ashraf has to keep going OUT
Faheem Ashraf c Gunathilaka b Pradeep 8 (8b 1×4 0x6) SR: 100.00
16.31 Pradeep to Shadab Khan full on off, driven with an open face to sweeper cover 1 run

Ranodeep Dutta: “Rizwan should be Pakistan’s keeper for Odis and tests and Sarfaraz should be pakistans keeper in t20s only”

16.21 Pradeep to Faheem Ashraf length ball on off, Ashraf wants to slog this out of the Gadaffi Stadium, instead he splices it back to the bowler 1 run

DaMan: “I know Pakistan are world number 1 in T20, but I feel they are more suited to UAE wickets where 150 is par first innings score”

16.14 Pradeep to Faheem Ashraf Pradeep bowls a yorker on middle stump, Ashraf clears his front leg and scythes it up and over extra-cover. That’s some hit from Ashraf FOUR

Khalid: “how many times do Shehzad and Umar Akmal have to remind everyone they are not good enough to be in the team before everyone stops calling for them to be recalled every few months?”

End of Over No.16 Pakistan 90/7 Last Over (4 runs)

15.61 de Silva to Faheem Ashraf back of a length on middle, forced off the back foot for one 1 run
15.51 de Silva to Shadab Khan short and breaks away outside off, swished down to long-off 1 run
15.40 de Silva to Shadab Khan shorter and on off, stabbed back to the bowler no run

14.61 Rajitha to Faheem Ashraf full on the pads, picked up and the ball landed in front of deep square leg 1 run
14.50 Rajitha to Faheem Ashraf off-stump yorker, dug out no run
14.4W Rajitha to Imad Wasim Hasaranga pouches it at mid-off. Full-toss outside off, Imad aims to launch it over him, no dice, he simply slaps it to the man there OUT
Imad Wasim c de Silva b Rajitha 7 (5b 1×4 0x6) SR: 140.00
14.31 Rajitha to Asif Ali full-toss on leg stump, miscued to square leg and throw is to the non-striker’s end. Hits his bat and rolls away to the deep 1 run

End of Over No.14 Pakistan 79/5 Last Over (4 runs)

13.61 de Silva to Imad Wasim fuller and just a shade outside off, whipped through the midwicket region 1 run

Charles Dickens: “Sarfaraz should better go home now. Since how many years have we seen him hitting a six? At least reduce him to play only tests as a minimum. Bring Rizwan in limited overs cricket and groom players with strong muscle and six-hitting abilities……. Endless expectations ……..” — Oh and Rizwan, having been released from the national squad, made a ton today in the QeA trophy

13.51 de Silva to Asif Ali short and skids on middle, forced down to long-on off the back foot 1 run
13.40 de Silva to Asif Ali short and breaks away outside off, punched to point off the back foot no run

Khawaja: “Sarfaraz is main culprit here. He played numerous dot balls, put pressure on Iftikhar and now got out. He is biggest problem in Pakistan batting line up. ”

13.31 de Silva to Imad Wasim punched through the covers 1 run
13.2W de Silva to Sarfaraz Ahmed bowled’em. Sarfaraz has been put out of his misery. This was coming, wasn’t it? He marches down the track, goes for a big heave-ho, and does not make any contact. Hasranga nails the stumps with a straighter one OUT
Sarfaraz Ahmed b de Silva 24 (30b 1×4 0x6) SR: 80.00
13.11 de Silva to Asif Ali tossed on middle, Asif goes for a mighty slog-sweep and only inside-edges it towards short fine leg 1 run

End of Over No.13 Pakistan 75/4 Last Over (4 runs)

Adnan: “Please don’t compare dhoni with any of our players. NONE in this team are even close to his status. Maybe if Misbah returns to bat, then yes.”

12.61 Sandakan to Asif Ali flighted and full on off, driven down to long-off 1 run
12.50 Sandakan to Asif Ali flighted on middle, reverse-swept only as far as Danushka diving to his right at slip no run

Who will Win Sri Lanka tour of Pakistan, 1st T20I: Pakistan v Sri Lanka ?

With ten nearly equally matched groups, the importance of every game can’t be understated in this tournament. Both sides are expected to emerge out packaged full-strength against each other in what claims to be a cracker of a competition. Contemplating that the 2 sides on newspaper,Sri Lanka are somewhat more power-packed unit whereas Pakistan possess the benefit of being a steady side. For this and another above-mentioned motives, we believe the Sri Lanka are far more likely to emerge victorious in what will be among the most crucial experiences for either side.
