OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Mohammad Amir. Slower ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Gunathilaka. Amir holes out again this time to the man at long-off and that wicket seals and emphatic win for Sri Lanka away from home, a great start to the series, they just beat the number one T20I side in the world with a weakened team, the biggest ever win for Sri Lanka against Pakistan. A fantastic performance from every player on that Sri Lankan side, the turning point for me was the great catch from Bhanuka to dismiss Babar Azam early on, if he didn't make the catch the game would've panned out completely different.

W
OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Shadab Khan. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Fernando. Shadab holes out to Fernando, slower ball from Udana gets him, he has to wait for the ball but he is already through the stroke, great bowling.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Good afternoon and welcome to the first T20I of the series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at Lahore, this T20I series comes straight after the three ODI games the two nations played, on paper this seems like a one sided affair with Pakistan being the top ranked T20 International team in the world playing against a weakened Sri Lanka outfit but matches aren't won on paper and Sri Lanka will be looking for revenge after a 2-0 ODI series defeat. One positive to come out of the forced changes Sri Lanka made in preparation to the series was that they can give fringe players the chance of competing against top quality opposition, which gives them a chance of unearthing new talent that might have been overlooked if the full strength squad was available, this in the run up to the T20 World Cup is vital. Pakistan go into this game as one of the favourites to lift the T20 World Cup in 2020 so will be looking to impose their dominance in this format of the game with a good win against today's visitors. One of their key players, Babar Azam will be eager to continue his run of good form with a few runs today, in the ODI series he averaged 73.00 and is one of the players the fans will be excited to see play at home.

OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Mohammad Amir. Slower ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Gunathilaka. Amir holes out again this time to the man at long-off and that wicket seals and emphatic win for Sri Lanka away from home, a great start to the series, they just beat the number one T20I side in the world with a weakened team, the biggest ever win for Sri Lanka against Pakistan. A fantastic performance from every player on that Sri Lankan side, the turning point for me was the great catch from Bhanuka to dismiss Babar Azam early on, if he didn't make the catch the game would've panned out completely different.

FOUR! Wanindu Hasaranga to Iftikhar Ahmed. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Hasaranga drops this one way too short and Iftikhar makes the most of the loose ball, Pakistan need more of them if they're going to win this one.
