Commentary
  • 49.6 - Hasan Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for 1 run, mis-fielded by Shehzad.

    After a thrilling Test series, much was expected of these unpredictable teams in the 50 over format. As it turns out, the contest meandered for long periods as Pakistan had all but sealed the win 16 overs into the chase. That was thanks to Rumman Raees and Hasan Ali, who both struck twice early on to leave Sri Lanka in tatters at 67/5. Lahiru Thirimanne and Akila Dananjaya fought valiantly but the task was too monumental against a quality bowling attack. The earlier groundwork was laid by Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik with the bat, as the Champions Trophy winners flexed their muscles in Dubai. The next match comes from Abu Dhabi on Monday.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught (Sub). Shadab Khan to Thisara Perera. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket. Tossed up high and slow, Perera can't resist having a wild heave and skies it high into the Dubai night. The substitute fielder has plenty of time to consider things, the ball hangs in the air for what seems like an eternity and eventually settles in his hands. Shadab strikes in his first over as Sri Lanka slowly sink further towards defeat.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Hasan Ali to Milinda Siriwardana. Out-swinging half volley, off stump no foot movement working, missed. Timber, Hasan Ali has two in two. The drinks break has worked a treat for Pakistan, giving the bowler enough time to think about the perfect delivery to bowl to the new batsman. Siriwardana is clueless as the ball angles in from around the wicket, moving away late to beat him all ends up and make a mess of the stumps. Pakistan jubilant, Sri Lanka desolate.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Hasan Ali to Kusal Mendis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to leg gully, by Ahmed. Another one bites the dust to put the cherry on top of the cake for Pakistan heading into drinks. Hasan Ali bangs this in short and fast, it skids onto Mendis quicker than anticipated to take the splice of his pull shot. Sarfraz moves around to take the catch sparking wild celebrations from the bowler. Sri Lanka really in the mire now, in need of something special to turn this around.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Mohammad Hafeez to Upul Tharanga. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed. A superb over from Hafeez and he finishes it in perfect style for Pakistan, destroying the stumps of the Sri Lankan captain. Tharanga was getting visibly frustrated, unable to rotate the strike as much as he wanted and unwilling to play out this over as a maiden. He resorts to a filthy swipe across the line and in the end it looks pretty ugly as he gets in an awful tangle.

Big swing for Raees and he's trapped Chandimal in front, a huge wicket for Pakistan. This is a classic left-arm quick dismissal, bringing the ball back in to the right-hander to beat the inside edge and have him plumb LBW. Chandimal reviews, hoping the ball is swinging too much but ball tracking confirms that was smashing into leg stump.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rumman Raees to Niroshan Dickwella. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Ahmed. Edged behind, Sarfraz accepts the chance with glee. The warning signs were there for Dickwella but he doesn't learn, this was a very similar stroke to his streaky boundary two balls ago. This time the edge is much thinner meaning an easy take for the keeper.

  • 3.2 - Rumman Raees to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, well timed to deep square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Khan.

  • 3.1 - FOUR! Rumman Raees to Niroshan Dickwella. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs.

  • 2.6 - Junaid Khan to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid wicket for 1 run.

  • 2.5 - FOUR! Junaid Khan to Niroshan Dickwella. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Malik. He may have played an excellent knock with the bat, but his fielding here leaves a little to be desired. Malik charges in and goes for the aggressive option in trying to take the catch, but the ball lands short and then scoots underneath him into the fence.

  • 2.4 - FOUR! Junaid Khan to Niroshan Dickwella. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Stand and deliver, Dickwella waits for this slower ball and crunches it over the top before standing and admiring it.

    Pakistan finish up on 292/6 thanks largely to impressive innings by Babar Azam (103) and Shoaib Malik (81). The former was fairly circumspect, especially early on, ensuring that he held the innings together after the early loss of a wicket. The latter was much more flamboyant, peppering the boundary with regularity in a brutal knock. The result is a total Pakistan will be pretty happy with, as the surface is slow and the outfield large. Suranga Lakmal was the pick of the bowling, returning after a parsimonious opening spell to claim crucial wickets at the death. This will be a tough chase for the tourists, they will be hoping some dew forms under the lights to help the ball skid onto the bat.

  • 49.5 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Hasan Ali. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Perera. That's not what Sri Lanka need at this late stage. Dananjaya completely misjudges one on the rope and allows a bonus boundary for the hosts.

  • 49.4 - Thisara Perera to Imad Wasim. Slower ball back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Vandersay.

  • 49.3 - SIX! Thisara Perera to Imad Wasim. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Clean hitting by Imad, planting his front foot down the pitch and then swinging sweetly through the ball.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Babar Azam. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Mendis. This is excellent death bowling by Lakmal, allowing the surface to take all the pace out of the ball and make the batsmen do all the hard work. Babar Azam has been batting a long time so doesn't quite have the energy left in the tank to send this into orbit. Mendis swallows the skier with no fuss.

  • 48.1 - APPEAL! Suranga Lakmal to Babar Azam. Half volley, down leg side backing away flick, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Gamage, by Dickwella, appeal made for Run Out.

  • 47.4 - Thisara Perera to Babar Azam. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Siriwardana. There it is, the single that takes Babar Azam to a fantastic century. He just loves playing ODI cricket in the UAE. He's held the innings together for the men in green today, allowing the more flamboyant players to play around him.

  • 47.3 - Thisara Perera to Sarfraz Ahmed. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Siriwardana.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Shoaib Malik. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Perera. The end of a terrific innings by Malik. This was a cutter dug into the pitch by Lakmal, meaning the batsman had to try and impart plenty of power into it to find the ropes. Malik does his best but can't get enough muscle behind it, Dananjaya taking a simple grab on the fence.

  • 45.5 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Shoaib Malik. Slower ball half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, dropped catch by Siriwardana. Violently smashed into the deep once again, it drops over the fielders head but just inside the boundary rope. The fielder probably should've done better there and at least got a hand to it. Sri Lanka really under the pump now.

  • 44.5 - Wide Lahiru Gamage to Shoaib Malik. Half volley, wide down leg side backing away, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 44.4 - FOUR! Lahiru Gamage to Shoaib Malik. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Venomously swiped away by Malik, he cleared his front leg and then threw the kitchen sink at it.

  • 42.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Shoaib Malik. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Perera. Pakistan happy to just work the singles at the moment, plenty of gaps for them to hit at this late stage.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Jeffrey Vandersay to Mohammad Hafeez. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Perera. But Hafeez is gone next ball, what an awful shot. He was looking to force this over mid wicket but the ball wasn't quite short enough to pull. He got cramped for room, in a bit of a tangle, and sent it straight down long on's throat. Great time for the tourists to strike.

  • 27.5 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Jeffrey Vandersay to Mohammad Hafeez. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, bottom edge for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Massive appeal and up goes the finger, Hafeez misses with his swipe across the line. He asks for a review immediately though, and looks pretty confident about it. Replays suggest a slight bottom-edge which is good enough for the third umpire to ask for the decision to be overturned.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Akila Dananjaya to Fakhar Zaman. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, missed. What a beauty, what a response from Dananjaya. It's that mystery spin doing the trick for Sri Lanka. This is a perfectly pitched googly, Zaman with no clue which way it will turn. The ball just does enough to beat the outside edge and clip the top of off stump. Akila is elated, as are Sri Lanka because it's a great time to strike.

Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, Gloved to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Mendis, appeal made for L.B.W.

Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Massive appeal as spin is brought into the attack, Dananjaya getting his first ball to grip. The umpire isn't bothered about the caught behind appeal though and signals wide, but Dickwella is convinced and immediately asks the captain to review. Tharanga might be less inclined to trust Dickwella from now on though, as there is clear daylight between bat and ball, so Sri Lanka lose their only review.

  • 9.6 - Lahiru Gamage to Fakhar Zaman. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, to cover for no runs, fielded by Thirimanne. A small flourish at the end, but on the whole Sri Lanka will be pleased with how they went in the powerplay.
