    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SRI LANKA REACH THEIR 2ND CONSECUTIVE ASIA CUP FINAL!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Asalanka clips it away and Sri Lanka can run an easy two. The defending champions are through to the final once again. They face India on Sunday to defend their title. What a chase this has been, Sri Lanka cruising for most of it, then it looked like Pakistan have been brought back in it by Iftikhar. Then it looked like Sri Lanka were back in front because of Asalanka, then Afridi’s double strike made it look like Pakistan’s match to lose. Then it all went bonkers in the final over, momentum swung this way and that, with just three balls to go Pakistan looked to be on top and at the end of it all, the home fans are singing away into the night.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUTSIDE EDGE AND FOUR! SL NEED 2 TO WIN OFF THE LAST BALL!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: And one run to tie the game and send this match to a Super Over. Asalanka swings at the fullish delivery, outside edge and there are no slips obviously, well out of reach for Rizwan and it goes to the boundary. The equation shifts again. Sweet cricket gods, what do Pakistan do here? Babar is talking away with Zaman, he can talk all he wants but this match has come down to a contest between the young fast bowler and Charith Asalanka, who is on 47 by the way, if anyone cares.

  • Sep 15, 2023 01:01 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: RUN OUT, DOT BALL, SL NEED 6 OFF 2!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan swings for the stars, misses it and Asalanka is already halfway down the track before Madushan looks up. He starts running, hesitates, none of it matters because in that time, Rizwan throws it to Zaman, who throws it on to the stumps. Pakistan were down and out, now they are outright favourites to win this.

  • Sep 15, 2023 01:00 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SL need 6 off 3!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: They run a leg bye off the first ball and the second is a dot. Then they run a single and now Asalanka is off strike with SL needing six to win! Yikes!

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:56 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka need 8 to win off the last over

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: It is Madushan who is on strike for this. The young Zaman Khan, who has an action that is so similar to one of Sri Lanka’s greatest, most beloved fast bowler in the last two decades, is now going to try and deny them a second consecutive spot in the final of an Asia Cup.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:54 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! TWO IN TWO FOR AFRIDI!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Jeepers creepers Shaheen Afridi has had a terrible day so far but cometh the hour cometh the champion. Sri Lanka need nine in seven but they now have a tail-ender facing Afridi with his tail up. 

    Wellalage c Mohammad Rizwan b Shaheen Shah Afridi 0 (1), Sri Lanka 243/7 in 40.5 overs

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:52 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! A TWIST AGAIN!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Of course there had to be another little corner to turn before we see a conclusion to this epic of a match. Umpires come together to discuss if this full toss was too high for a few tantalising seconds before it becomes clear that Dhananjaya has indeed been caught at long on. 

    Dhananjaya c Zaman Khan b Shaheen Shah Afridi 5 (7), Sri Lanka 243/6 in 40.4 overs

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:50 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SL 240/5 in 40 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A single off the last ball and Sri Lanka now need 12 off 12. Asalanka remains on strike.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:48 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! SL need 13 off 13!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Cue pandemonium in the stands. Asalanka makes room and then sends the fifth ball of the 40th over the bowler’s head to the boundary.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:44 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka are 232/5, need 20 off 18

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A conference between Babar, Rizwan, Shadab and Afridi and he decides to hand the ball to young Zaman Khan, who had started off with a maiden but then conceded 24 runs in the next three. Dhananjaya is on strike, he has made 4 in 4. Asalanka at the other end on 32 off 36. Whoever wins this match is through to the final remember.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:40 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Asalanka goes back over Afridi’s head off the third ball of the 39th. Pick the bones out of that one, Afridi goes outside off with a slow one and Asalanka smahes it. Sri Lanka now need 22 off 21.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:35 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! PAKISTAN ARE BACK IN IT!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dasun Shanaka has picked out the fielder at long on, Iftikhar Ahmed has got his third. He goes for a slong sweep but it has come off the bottom end of the bat. Nawaz takes a low catch and doesn’t really celebrate, leading to some doubt over whether he had actually caught it but it was out. 

    Shanaka c Mohammad Nawaz b Iftikhar Ahmed 2 (4), Sri Lanka 222/5, need 30 to win in 26

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:35 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka need 33 off 30

    Well, well, well, this has become a real potboiler now. The required rate has gone above SL’s current rate.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:28 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Overthrows! 2 runs gifted there

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: This is the last thing Pakistan want now. Asalanka cuts the second ball of Afridi’s over to point. Shadab Khan, probably Pakistan’s best fielder is there, Asalanka clearly not looking to go anywhere by the time Shadab shapes up for a throw but he lets one rip anyway. He misses the stumps and there is no one to back him up, the batters run 2, they now need 34 to win off 33.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:26 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 216/4 in 36 overs, need 36 to win off 36

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well are Sri Lanka feeling the pressure here? A couple of very tight runs, in both cases a better throw would have got the batter.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:21 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Stunning catch from Haris! 

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Mendis denied a century! He stands his ground though and the umpires go upstairs to see if this was a legitimate catch. Length ball floated in by Iftikhar, it gets a leading edge as Mendis looks to clip this on side. Haris leaps forward from extra cover and takes a good catch diving forward. Replays show that he clearly had fingers underneath the ball. Mendis out in the 90s for the second time in this tournament.

    Mendis c Mohammad Haris b Iftikhar Ahmed 91 (87) , Sri Lanka 210/4 in 35.1 overs

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:15 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX! Sri Lanka 208/3 in 34 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis moves into the 90s. He slog sweeps the last ball of the 34th from Iftikhar over midwicket.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:07 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 194/3

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rizwan dropped Asalanka right after that six. Iftikhar had got it to straighten off a length on off stump, Asalanka got a thick edge on it but Rizwan couldn’t hold on. Mendis on 81 off 79, Asalanka on 11 off 10. Sri Lanka need 58 to win from 60.

  • Sep 15, 2023 12:07 AM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX! 

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Iftikhar sends one in the slot and Asalanka sends him over deep midwicket.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:58 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Samarawickrama is stumped!

    Iftikhar Ahmed had changed the tide with the bat, has he changed the tide with the ball as well? He comes down the track and is deceived by the lack of turn, Rizwan does the rest.

    Samarawickrama st Mohammad Rizwan b Iftikhar Ahmed 48 (51), Sri Lanka 177/3 in 29.4 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:53 PM IST

    9.4 oveSri Lanka 175/2 in 29 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Partnership between Sadeera and Mendis is now on 98 off 94. Mendis has scored 75 in as many, Sadeera on 46 off 47. This is now running away from Pakistan, Sri Lanka need 77 to win in 78.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:48 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Concussion test done

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Samarawickrama seems fine now. The ball had hit him on the visor just above the grill. That helmet is changed, Shadab bowling to Mendis now from the other end.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:45 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Samarawickrama has been hit!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: He is in real pain here, takes his helmet off and crouches down on the ground. Afridi is the bowler and his bouncer hits Samarawickrama flush on the head. The Pakistani fielders and Mendis converge around him before the physio and his team come on the field. Sri Lanka 167/2 in 28 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:41 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 160/2 in 27 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The reintroduction of Afridi hasn’t worked and Shadab has been brought back but the singles and doubles continue to flow for Sri Lanka. They need 92 to win now from 90. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:32 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shaheen Afridi returns

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis and Samarawickrama have taken the wind out of Pakistan’s sails and they need a change pronto. In comes their premier pacer but he himself had leaked runs in his first spell. Conundrums conundrums.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:25 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis hits it square of the wicket and that is Sri Lanka’s first boundary in nearly six overs. But this is very much pressure on Pakistan, Samarawickrama and Mendis were collecting runs between the wickets. At the end of that over, Sri Lanka are 145/2 in 24, need 107 to win off 108 balls. Mendis on 60 off 59, Samarawickrama on 32 off 33.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:15 PM IST

     Sri Lanka 132/2 in 21 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis on 50 off 48, Samarawickrama on 29 off 26. This stand has brought 55 runs in 47 balls now. Sri Lanka need 120 to win in 126 balls.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:14 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Half century for Mendis!

    Third half century in four matches for Mendis, 25th overall in ODI cricket. He has been in good form in this tournament. This one has come in just 47 balls.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:12 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: 50 run partnership

    It has come in just 42 balls, despite the fact that there haven’t been too many boundaries and that is because both players have been rotating strike for fun. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:07 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 116/2 in 19 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shadab Khan taken off the attack and Iftikhar Ahmed has been brought on in his place. This is not good for Pakistan at all, their premier spinner has hardly been at his best throughout this tournament and he has been woeful today.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:02 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! 14 runs off the over

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Very short and wide again from Shadab and Samarawickrama has punished him again. He moves to 22 off 18, Mendis on 38 off as many.

  • Sep 14, 2023 11:00 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Shadab continues to leak runs

     Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: He beat Mendis off the third delivery with a delivery that spun sharply. Then he goes for a full toss that Mendis slogs over deep midwicket for a four.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:58 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! 100 up for Sri Lanka

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Short and wide from Shadab, which is anything but what the field has been set for, Samarawickrama stays back and cuts it hard past point. Easy runs and poor bowling from Shadab.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:48 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 89/2 in 15 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Mendis is on 31 off 33, Sadeera Samarawickrama has scored 7 in 5. The run rate has gone below the required rate but only just so. Sri Lanka now need some patient, responsible batting and they will reach that territory where the fielding side might start getting desperate.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:40 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! 

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shadab gets Nissanka! Flighted lengthball on middle stump, Nissanka tries to go over the bowler’s head and jumps down the track but it came from the bottom of the bat. It was too full and the ball goes right back to the bowler.

    Nissanka c & b Shadab Khan 29 (44), Sri Lanka 77/2 in 13.2 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:37 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:33 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 70/1 in 12 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Mendis on 22 off 24, Nissanka has scored 27 in 40. The spinners continue and the runs have dried up somewhat in the last few overs.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:30 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 65/1 in 11 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Spinners Nawaz and Shadab have brought the run rate down. Nissanka on 25 off 37, Mendis on 19 off 21.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:19 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 56/1 in 8 overs

    Sri Lanka’s required rate is 5.66 but they are going at 7 at the moment. 13 runs off that over. Mendis has scored 17 in 15 and Nissanka 17 in 25. The Premadasa is absolutely heaving.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:18 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Mendis now

     Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A bit lucky as Mendis got a thick inside edge. It rushed behind him to the boundary.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:16 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Nissanka once again and this brings up Sri Lanka’s 50 in 7.3 overs. Wasim goes short and wide for the second ball of the eighth, Nissanka hangs back and slashes it behind point. Then the third ball is sent between point and backward point. Sensational batting from Nissanka.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:15 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 43/1 in 7 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mohammad Wasim to come in for the eighth. Nissanka on 9 off 21 and Mendis on 13 off as many. A good partnership developing between these two and Sri Lanka are going at the run rate they need to chase this down.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:12 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Afridi on the pads again, it is a full toss and Mendis clips it away. Afridi had missed the yorker there, and once again, he pays for it with a boundary.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:09 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 36/1 in 6 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis on 7 off many balls, Nissanka on 9 off 21. Quite an effort on the boundary off the last ball of that over but the batters ran three and so just one run saved.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:05 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 32/1 in 5 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis on 4 off 6, Nissanka on 8 off 16. Mendis clipped the second delivery off his pads to the boundary to get off the mark, Shaheen Afridi leaking runs here.

  • Sep 14, 2023 10:03 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well Nissanka had nothing for 13 balls but now he has hit two fours off Zaman and is away. The fourth ball is driven brilliantly through covers and then Nissanka drives the next delivery square on the up.

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:59 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! PERERA IS RUN OUT!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: How about that, Kusal Perera, who had scored 17 off 8 has now been run out. Perera chops it to the offside, Nisanka set off for a single straightaway but Perera hesitates! He has to rush but it’s a direct hit from the brilliant Shadab Khan and replays show that he is gone.

    Perera run out (Shadab Khan) 17 (8), Sri Lanka 20/1 in 3.2 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:55 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 16/0 in 3 overs

     Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: All of these runs have been scored by Perera off Afridi. He has made 13 in 6 balls while Nissanka has nothing in 12 balls.

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:52 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Zaman Khan’s first over was a maiden but then Perera hits another four off Afridi off the first ball of the second over. Full on the pads, Perera whips it over midwicket.

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:47 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Sri Lanka 11/0 in 1 over

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Perera opened with Pathum Nissanka, instead of Dimuth Karunaratne, and he makes an impact in the first over itself. He first hits a four off the fourth ball of the match and then slaps Afridi over mid-off for the second. For the second over comes Pakistan’s own baby Malinga, Zaman Khan on his ODI debut. He replaces the injured Haris Rauf in this squad and it was Haris who gave him his first ODI cap earlier today. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:28 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka need to chase down 252

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: There you go, Sri Lanka’s target is the exact same score as what Pakistan made, as opposed to being one more than that. Before the rain break,  Pakistan had scored 130 runs at a run rate of 4.7 in 27.4 ivers. After the rain break, they scored 122 runs at a run rate of 8.60 in 14.2 overs.

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:23 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 252/7 in 42 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rizwan with a four to end the innings. He ends unbeaten on 82 off 73 balls and may have almost single-handedly given Pakistan a chance to make it to the final here. Pakistan have scored 102 runs in the last 10 overs and this might go a long way in helping them get a good target to defend. Remember that Sri Lanka’s target could be different because of the fact that it was a 45 overs a side contest when Pakistan had started their innings. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:19 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Stunning catch behind the wicket!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Full outside off from Madushan, Shadab gets a thick edge. Mendis times his dive perfectly and makes sure he has the ball when he hits the ground as well.

    Shadab Khan c †Mendis b Pramod Madushan 3 (3), Pakistan 243/7 in 41.2 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:17 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! That’s it for Iftikhar

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pathirana gets three. It comes off the toe end of the bat and goes to mid on where Shanak makes no mistake with the catch. A 108-run partnership off just 78 balls has been broken.

    Iftikhar c Shanaka b Pathirana 47 (40), Pakistan 238/6 in 40.3 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:05 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Theekshana hobbles off

    Pakistan are 221/5 in 39 overs. Theekshana finishes that over and is almost carried off the field by the physio. In fact he is having to be helped up the stairs to the dressing room by three players. This is not looking good at all for Sri Lanka.

  • Sep 14, 2023 09:01 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! What a shot from Rizwan!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Theekshana sends the fourth ball of the 39th at a length and Rizwan moves away from the line of the ball. He then whallops it inside out over extra cover.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:54 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! 200 up for Pakistan

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Brilliant drive off the first ball of the 38th from Pathirana. Rizwan moves to 65.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:44 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 184/5 in 35 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Theekshana limps through that over and well, he had got Iftikhar LBW with the last ball. The umpire had said no and Sri Lanka chose not to take the review. Replays show that there would have been three reds. Theekshana went off and is getting some strapping on his leg, he screams and punches the ground when he sees the replay of that decision on the big screen.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:38 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 178/5 in 34 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rizwan on 51 off 49, Iftikhar on 16 off 20. Mahesh Theekshana had to walk off the field after trying to stop the boundary from Rizwan. He now returns to bowl the next over but he is limping.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:37 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Fifty for Rizwan

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: It has come in just 49 balls. Rizwan has been a player transformed since the resumption.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:35 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX! Biggie from Rizwan

    Wellalage bowling his last over, the third ball is in the arc for Rizwan and the Pakistan wicketkeeper slams over deep midwicket. He moves to 47.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:33 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 168/5 in 33 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Two dot balls to end that over but the damage was done. “Come on!” shouts a Sri Lanka fielder after the last ball goes for a dot. This was a cagey innings before the rain and now it has become high octane stuff.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:31 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX OFF THE FREE HIT!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan gets it on the mark and Iftikhar just smashes it back over his head past the boundary. 18 runs off four balls in this over.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:29 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan losing the plot!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The buzzer went off for no ball for the fourth delivery of the 33rd. The free-hit delivery is wide outside off and then the follow up is also wide outside off. He loads up to bowl it a third time and….

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:26 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan brought back and his first delivery is dismissed by Rizwan from his presence. It fies over deep midwicket.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:24 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 150/5 in 32 overs

    A four from Iftikhar over extra cover off the second ball of the 32nd over from Wellalage took Pakistan to 150 but no runs after that in the over. Iftikhar Ahmed 10 off 16, Rizwan 32 off 40.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:17 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 138/5 in 30 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Just 12 overs left. Pakistan have two aggressive batters in the middle now and they have to make it count.

  • Sep 14, 2023 08:11 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: 28 overs gone, Pakistan 133/5

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rizwan is on 22 off 30, Iftikhar Ahmed on three off 2 as Theekshana completes his sixth over.

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:59 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Match to restart at 8.32pm

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: It has now reduced to a 42 overs a side contest. Pakistan really have to accelerate now as it is pretty certain that Sri Lanka’s target will be readjusted now. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:55 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Waqar Younis on Pathirana in red ball cricket

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: MS Dhoni had said that Sri Lanka should avoid getting Pathirana in red ball cricket at the moment and Waqar says that there might be some wisdom in that as Pathirana’s action puts so much pressure on his body. “(His action is) like a javelin thrower’s, so much stress on his body. He needs to be preserved, he is an asset in white ball cricket. His bouncers are brilliant, he is a wicket-taker. Lasith Malinga was one, Chaminda Vaas was one and he is doing that job.”

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:52 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The covers coming off now

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Ok then, the rain has eased off and the outfield covers are going off now. Continuing to look good at the moment.

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:41 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The rain intensifies

    Well, when has the rain gods ever stayed away once they arrive here. The ground staff had taken the covers off but now they come and so do a number of more that will cover the outfield as well. Iftikhar Ahmed was ready to walk on when the rain had come. It is he and Rizwan who will take guard for Pakistan, if they can face any more overs in this innings. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:32 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Covers on!

    As Nawaz walked off, the ground staff started coming on with those covers. A slight drizzle has come and they are taking no risks here. But we could have an immediate restart here. Pakistan ar 130/5 in 27.4 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:31 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Nawaz goes

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: That’s it for the counter-attack

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 128/4 in 27 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Nawaz on 10 off 8, Rizwan on 22 off 30 balls. Nawaz has hit two fours in his short innings and Pakistan have a little surge of runs in the last three overs.

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:24 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Just about beats the fielder in the deep! Full on off from Dhananjaya, Nawaz launches it in the air down the ground. Wellalage is there at long-on, runs in to his left and dives and the ball goes through his hands to the boundary. Not exactly a catching chance, it would have been an absolute stunner if he had taken it, but Nawaz has helped Pakistan put up a bit of a counter attack now.

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:16 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 110/4 in 25 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Would have been the halfway point of an innings in normal circumstances but in the case of this match, that point was reached during the fifth ball of the 23rd. Pakistan are in a real soup here, can Nawaz and Rizwan bail them out?

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:11 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Another for Pathirana

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Haris has spooned it right back to the bowler. Pace off from Pathirana for the last ball of the 24th, Haris is early on the drive and chips it back to the bowler who holds it with both hands and celebrates.

    Haris c & b Pathirana 3 (9), Pakistan 108/4 in 24 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 07:07 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 103/3 in 23 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A complete shift in momentum now. Sri Lanka in total control. Rizwan continues to look jumpy, he has scored 12 off 18 while Mohammad Haris is at the other end on 1 off 5.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:58 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Shafique falls

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pathirana has struck with the set batter. He digs it in short, Shafique pulls it but the ball doesn’t have the wings to clear the man at deep square leg.

    Shafique c Pramod Madushan b Pathirana 52 (69), Pakistan 100/3 in 21.4 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:54 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Maiden ODI fifty for Shafique!

    A single off the next ball and a very good half century from Shafique, his first in ODI cricket. What a find this 23-year-old is turning out to be for Pakistan. He averages 50.83 with four centuries in 14 Tests and now makes the difference after being promoted to the opening spot. His half century has come up in 65 balls.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:53 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX! Shafique gets to 49

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dhananjaya de Silva brought in for the 21st over, Shafique charges down the track to him in the second ball and sends it over the bowler’s head for his second six of the match.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:45 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 83/2 in 18 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shafique on 40 off 53, Rizwan, who has looked quite jumpy thus far, is on 7 off 9. Wellalage and Theekshana alternating now and Pakistan are in trouble, remember that this is a 45-over game. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:35 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Wellalage gets Babar!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Wellalage adds Babar to his list of big name wickets. Extraordinary delivery this. Tossed up on off, Babar comes forward but the ball turns away from him sharply. Mendis collects and whips off the bails. Babar’s backfoot had come off the crease as he went through with the shot and was not even close to getting it back in when the bails had gone off. Wellalage’s five wickets against India included Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, he can now add Babar Azam to that list.

    Babar Azam st Mendis b Wellalage 29 (35), Pakistan 73/2 in 16 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:33 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Has Babar been stumped?

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Wellalage might have struck with the last ball of the 16th over here. Babar prods forward, Mendis picks it up and whips the bails off. The Sri Lankans are celebrating and the umpire goes upstairs.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:24 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 68/1 in 14 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Babar and Shafique are bossing the proceedings now. They have put on 59 in 58. Babar is on 27 off 29, Shafique on 34 off 44. Sri Lanka bring back Mahesh Theekshana in a bid to break this stand.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:23 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Oh Babar Azam!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pathirana in the slot once again, this time to Babar. The Pakistan captain comes across and flicks it almost nonchalanty but everything about that shot was so perfect that it ran to the boundary.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:21 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Fifty stand up!

     Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan are 62/1 in 13 overs. Length ball in the slot from Pathirana, Shafique comes forward and crashes that through covers. That ball went so quickly to the boundary that no one on the ground even bothered to move.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:10 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 48/1 in 11 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Babar on 18 off, Shafique on 23 off 35. What an intriguing early passage of the game this has been. Sri Lanka have kept Pakistan down but the batters are looking increasingly comfortable. In the midst of all this comes Matheesha Pathirana with his slingers for the 12th over.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:08 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SIX!

     Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well, well, well, there was a big appeal for LBW last delivery from Wellalage against Shafique and Sri Lanka had reviewed the umpire’s decision of not out. It was only the umpire’s call that was upheld as the ball was clipping leg stump. Then Shafique jumps off his crease for the next ball and sends it over the bowler’s head for a six.

  • Sep 14, 2023 06:00 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Just 1 run from the over

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 38/1 in 9. Wellalage almost castled Shafique with the third ball of that over. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:55 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 35/1 in 8 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Now they are getting somewhere. Babar is on 18 off 17, Shafique on 12 off 20. The run rate has gone up to 4.37. Here comes Dunith Wellalage, the man who ripped India apart with the ball in Sri Lanka’s last game and then threatened to snatch a win with the bat.

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:53 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Fabulous cover-drive from the Pakistan captain. The third ball of the eighth, good length outside off from Shanaka, Babar steps and sends this away on the up. Cover point fielder put in a dive but it was out of his reach.

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:48 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan with a short of a length delivery for the fourth ball of the seventh, Shafique stands tall and punches it through cover. Brilliant timing there.

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:41 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 13/1 in 5 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: That boundary from Babar helped take some pressure off Pakistan but they are still very much under the pump here. Dasun Shanaka brings himself on for the sixth over.

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:37 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Babar is off the mark

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Just brilliant timing from Babar. Madushan goes a bit too straight, Babar clips it between mid-on and mid-wicket.

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:34 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Zaman cleaned up!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: THAT’S IT! Madushan has rattled the stumps behind Fakhar. An inswinging yorker right on the money, Fakhar’s inside edge is beaten and the bails fly everywhere. Madushan fell over in the follow through and then towered above the batter. 

     

    Fakhar Zaman b Pramod Madushan 4 (11), Pakistan 9/1 in 4.2 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:32 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 9/0 in 4 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Both players still very much only settling in. No real attempt at hitting a boundary yet. Shafique gets to 4 off 15, Zaman on 4 off 9. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:29 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan 6/0 in 3 overs

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A watchful start to say the least from the Pakistan batters. Abdullah Shafique is on 4 off 13 and Fakhar Zaman on 2 off 5. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:24 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: First runs on the board

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Fakhar Zaman scores the first runs on the board. A push towards square leg for a single and Pakistan are off the mark in their virtual semi-final against Sri Lanka!

    Both openers off the mark in the second over.

    Pakistan 2/0 in 2 overs

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:22 PM IST

  • Sep 14, 2023 05:20 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Early movement!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SWING! Madushan beats Shafique’s outside edge twice in two balls. Good signs for Sri Lanka early into the game. 

    Nearly a wicket-maiden as Shafique looked all at sea with the uneven bounce; a chip barely travels to mid-off!

    Pakistan 0/0 in 1 over

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Would’ve bowled first, says Shanaka

    Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka wasn’t too disappointed at losing the toss, as he would’ve bowled first due to overcast conditions over RPS.

    “We would have bowled first. There’ll be more assistance for spinners. The way we batted, we had our chances but we couldn’t capitalise (against India).”

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sigh of relief for PAK

    With the rain subsiding (for now!), Pakistan captain would breathe a heavy sigh of relief. This match is their only chance to have a shot at India in the final, and even though depleted, this Pakistan side will definitely be aiming to make a strong comeback after the thrashing against India earlier this week

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Covers slowly being peeled off

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Not all of them are going off but some on the outfield are. There has been no rain for the last few minutes. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 04:14 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Cut off time 

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The cut off time for a 20-over match is 9.02pm. Why 20 over match? Because, for all those who have forgotten what ODIs are like, there has to be at least 20 playable overs both sides for the match to be considered valid. 

  • Sep 14, 2023 04:06 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The playing conditions…

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: For now there are no changes but we will start losing overs by 4.30pm. That is in just under half an hour from now. Commentators say these have been the heaviest bouts of rain that they have seen thus far in Colombo during this tournament.

    They are not preparing to take the covers off by any means. The ground staff are instead looking to soak off the puddles that have collected on them.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rain eases out

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Word from the middle is that rain has eased off. It is still drizzling enough for the covers to not be taken off though. Very far away from a start at the moment.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Imam-ul-Haq on the loss to India 

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “We haven’t lost any match since three months. Unfortunately that was the game (vs India), we need to get rid of that from our blood. That’s part of the game. We have some quality players and we talked about it. You have to step in and this is the day we are looking forward to. We played LPL here Test matches as well. We knew that the conditions will be like this. It’s not a batting paradise. It’s a tough challenge. As a batsman, you have to adapt. you have to craft your innings and look for the bad balls. Running between the wickets is the key as well. (On today’s game) We are looking forward to this game only. We knew we are a good team, we have to execute and we have worked hard.”

  • Sep 14, 2023 03:22 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: If the match gets washed out…

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well of course we have you covered on this front as well. And it remains quite simple. The table stays as it is. Sri Lanka are second on the basis of their better net run rate. They will remain second and it will be India vs Sri Lanka for the title.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: A reminder of what’s at stake

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: RAIN IS BACK, HORRIBLE TIMING!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Scratch that! The dreaded rain has returned just minutes before the rescheduled toss. Frustration is clearly visible on the faces of the Pakistani players. However, the Sri Lankans don’t seem too bothered. They have no complaints; in fact, they would be content with a “no result” since it secures their spot in the final. Pakistan, on the other hand, can’t share the same sentiment. With every passing minute of rain, their anxiety about the outcome intensifies.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: RAIN HAS STOPPED

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Ah finally! The rain has thankfully stopped and the covers are starting to come off. If it doesn’t rain any further anytime soon, we could see the toss taking place in roughly 10 minutes from now – 2.50PM. But then again, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. It’s a lot darker today in Colombo as compared to the last few days and it’ll be really surprising if it isn’t a start-stop kind of a day.

  • Sep 14, 2023 02:32 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: So as expected… TOSS DELAYED!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: There you have it! The official announcement is out: TOSS HAS BEEN DELAYED HERE AT THE PREMADASA STADIUM. It was on the cards to be honest. Dark clouds scattered around in the sky and now it’s opened up. The good news though – albeit slightly – is the rain is still light and could stop at any moment.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: More disheartening sights! Waqar Younis and Dominic Cork are discussing about the match but while holding big black umbrellas. Furthermore, looking up at the sky and the forecast which is predicting a 70 percent rainfall, Cork says he is not expecting a full 50-overs contest here. “It looks like we surely are looking at a curtailed game here,” he says.

  • Sep 14, 2023 02:10 PM IST

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OH NO!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Bummer! Half an hour before the scheduled toss, it has started to rain in Colombo. Thankfully, it’s a slight drizzle but enough for the covers to come on and cover the pitch. Parts of the ground still remains uncovered which indicates that it may not be too heavy at the moment. Oh wait! Scratch that, Premadasa is entirely covered now. How many times have we seen small drizzle take the form of a thunderstorm. It’s crazy how the weather has been in Sri Lanka. Nonetheless, here’s hoping these are nothing more than passing showers.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: How is the leading wicket-takers tally shaping up

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The Asia Cup was anticipated to heavily assist spinners, given the conditions in Sri Lanka where the tournament is being held. As expected, spinners have indeed taken center stage as the leading wicket-takers in this competition. Sitting at the top of the list is India wrist-spinner, Kuldeep Yadav. Following a remarkable five-wicket performance against Pakistan, he followed up with four more dismissals against Sri Lanka to lead the pack with 9 wickets. But hold on for a moment; he’s not the only one with such an impressive tally of wickets. Dunith Wellalage, Haris Rauf, and Taskin Ahmed also share this distinction. However, it’s quite probable that the Sri Lankan spinner will surge ahead after today’s match.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: What Lasith Malinga had to say about Dunith Wellalage

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: For a 20-year-old cricketer, receiving a million-dollar compliment from the iconic Lasith Malinga is a dream come true. The Sri Lankan legend believes that India had to contend with more than just 11 players due to the remarkable performance of Wellalage, who excelled both with the bat and the ball. While he captured the hearts of Sri Lankan fans with a sensational five-wicket haul, he came close to leading his team to victory with an unbeaten score of 42 runs. If his teammates had displayed a bit more determination, the result could have been different. Click here to read more

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: LATEST WEATHER UPDATE!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: As of now, 50 minutes before the PAK vs SL toss, the weather is not too concerning in Colombo although it is overcast. “Cloudy… bit of cloud cover… hasn’t rained but plenty on way around evening. Still expected to get a game today though,” is the update we have from the venue. So cheer up folks, and expect an on-time start. Despite there being rain, the weather prediction has been a bit off the radar. During hours where 90 percent rain was expected, there has been none and we’ve seen instances of incessant showers when the prediction was zero. However, the weather has significantly improved in the last few days and this can only mean promising things for cricket. Today too, there is a bit of rainfall expected in the second half but as of now, we are all clear and ALL SET for a 2.30PM start.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Why PAK head coach thanked India for their ‘gift’ to his team

    Pakistan’s defeat to India, where they conceded 356 runs and were dismissed for a mere 128 in just 32 overs, marked their second-largest loss in ODIs. After such a resounding setback, it’s customary to witness a knee-jerk reaction characterized by stern scrutiny, harsh words, and furrowed brows. However, Pakistan’s head coach, Grant Bradburn, took an unexpected approach. Rather than expressing disappointment, Bradburn referred to the loss as a “gift” and extended gratitude to India for their performance. The former New Zealand international viewed the heavy defeat as a valuable “wake-up call” for his team in the lead-up to the World Cup, emphasizing that they have enjoyed a relatively successful run in recent months.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: What a an individual battle we have on the cards

    Sri Lanka vs Pakistan Live Score: It’s a rare achievement to dismiss two batsmen with over 10,000 runs each in a single match, but the 20-year-old Dunith Wellalage accomplished this remarkable feat recently. With just one day’s rest, Wellalage now faces another formidable batting lineup that excels against spin. His next challenge is none other than Babar Azam, the world’s top-ranked batsman and arguably the finest player of spin bowling. Babar is determined to prove that Wellalage’s success against India was merely a stroke of luck, and it will be intriguing to see how the young bowler responds. Will he claim another significant scalp in the form of the Pakistan captain or return to reality? A fascinating contest awaits.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Question for PAK spinners

    The Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Super Four match will be played on the same surface as the India vs Sri Lanka game… so no prizes for guessing what either team’s bowling composition is going to look like. While SL’s pretty much picks itself, PAK need to weigh their spin bowling options. In the last match, spinners picked up a total of 16 wickets to fall. Similar to Wellalage, Pakistan possesses Mohammad Nawaz, who wouldn’t hesitate to deliver a left-arm spin performance similar to Dunith’s the other day.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka, be scared. BE VERY SCARED!

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Babar Azam boasts an impressive track record against Sri Lanka. Over his last six innings, the Pakistan captain has consistently delivered with scores of 103, 101, 30, an unbeaten 69, 115, and 31. While Babar continues to search for a breakthrough against India, there’s no denying that he has established himself as a dominant force when facing Sri Lanka. Given what is at stake today, Pakistan desperately requires Babar’s magical touch. Remember, a defeat here would spell the end of Pakistan’s journey, whereas a victory would grant them a chance to avenge their loss to India by setting up another marquee IND vs PAK marquee clash in the Asia Cup final on Sunday.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Why Sri Lanka start favourites

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Quite simply, there are two compelling reasons:

    Stability in the Line-Up: They boast a more settled team composition.

    Home Advantage and Red-Hot Form: Playing on their home soil, Sri Lanka enter the contest with a scorching run of form.

    While assessing the last five matches, both Pakistan and Sri Lanka have posted a record of W, W, W, W, L. Despite this, Sri Lanka maintain the upper hand. In the absence of Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera, their stand-in bowlers, Dunith Wellalage and Matheesha Pathirana, have excelled and feature prominently in the list of leading wicket-takers. Remarkably, the 20-year-old Dunith Wellalage shares the top spot with Kuldeep Yadav, each with 9 wickets, while Matheesha Pathirana is close behind with 8 wickets.

    Moreover, Sri Lanka’s fearless approach, especially when confronting spinners, adds to their potency. Their versatility and the presence of utility all-rounders make Sri Lanka a formidable and unpredictable team.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: PAK out to exact revenge against SL for last year’s final

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The last time Pakistan and Sri Lanka faced each other in the Asia Cup, it was at last year’s final, where SL comprehensively defeated PAK by 23 runs – a huge margin for T20Is. Sri Lanka were rattled early after being reduced to 58/5, but Bhanuka Rajapaksha took matters into his own hands and blasted a fine 71 not out to lift SL to 170/6. He first added 58 runs with Wanindu Hasaranga and another 54 with Chamila Karunaratne.

    In reply, Pakistan were a little restricted in their start despite a half-century from Mohammad Rizwan, but barring him and a 32 from Iftikhar Ahmed, no other batter could stand up. Sri Lanka’s spin trio of Pramod Madushan, Hasaranga and Karunaratne combined to pick 9 wickets to bowl Pakistan out for 147. Almost a year later, the two teams will again clash in a knockout, with the stakes as high as the final from last year.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shreyas Iyer resumes batting, although…

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: As the mystery surrounding Shreyas Iyer’s injury continues, we have some very important update coming in from Colombo to share. Shreyas, as we speak, is batting in the nets at the moment but looks far from his free-flowing best. The pain might have eased up but he is still moving a little stiff. India still have a good 24 hours to go before deciding on their tentative Playing XI but with the World Cup coming up and the match against Bangladesh having little relevance for either side, Shreyas might miss a third straight India game tomorrow.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: There’s something about unveiling a Playing XI before the game

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: There is just something about revealing your Playing XI before a match. Australia started it, England adapted it and now Pakistan are following suit. Disclosing your team combination to an opposition almost 24 hours before toss is the ultimate example of ‘Alright, let’s see what you got’. And that is the kind of attitude you associate with this Pakistan team. Gone are the days when they would be run over by oppositions – this team has transformed immensely under Babar Azam. Yes, you will have the occasional off day such as they did against India, but the fact that they were rolled over and still have the confidence in their abilities to unveil the 11 players they are going ahead with says a lot about the character of this Pakistan team.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka are wounded but…

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka’s remarkable 13-match winning streak may have recently concluded, but their performance over the past couple of months has been truly impressive. From successfully qualifying for the World Cup to coming close to defeating India in their last match, Sri Lanka cricket finally seems to have repaired the broken. For a long time, Sri Lanka experienced ups and downs during their transitional phases, but after years of development, they have assembled a core group of players that can thrive on the big stage. Their victories against higher-ranked teams can no longer be considered upsets. With bowlers who can bat and batters who can bowl, coupled with the occasional emergence of talents like Dunith Wellalage, Sri Lanka’s future appears to be quite promising.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Who is Naseem Shah’s replacement?

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live: Naseem Shah’s unfortunate exclusion from the team is undoubtedly a setback for Pakistan. However, Babar Azam may not be too disheartened by it as the player set to step in for Naseem shows great promise in being just as menacing. In his six T20I appearances, Zaman Khan has picked four wickets and much like his fellow quicks, this 22-year-old possesses the ability to consistently deliver impressive pace.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan jolted ahead of knockout game

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Pakistan’s strength, their brawn, their muscle is their pace-bowling trio of Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf, but with injuries to two of them and uncertainty hovering over Shaheen’s finger, the timing could not worse for Babar and his team. Rauf will take no further part in the Asia Cup as a precautionary measure, while Naseem has been ruled out altogether and his World Cup chances appear slim too. As for Shaheen, even THE EAGLE might find it DIFFICULT TO LAND with a troubled finger. Click HERE to read more.

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Colombo weather report

    Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: It is so far so good in Colombo but don’t count out the possibility of rain in the afternoon and evening. There are thunderstorms predicted around 3 PM and 5 PM today. Premadasa is a quick-drying ground, as we have seen throughout this tournament but if by chance the rain is relentless and it is not possible to complete the match then Sri Lanka will advance to the final. They have a higher net run rate than Pakistan, who took a beating against India a couple of nights ago. 

    Hopefully, it won’t come to that and we have a result today. Remember, all we need is 20 overs from each side for a full game.
