Imran Farhat (56) and Umar Akmal (55 not out) earlier scored half-centuries for Pakistan, while leg-spinner Jeevan Mendis and paceman Nuwan Kulasekara each bagged two wickets for Sri Lanka.

    congratulations guys, keep up the good team work.

    This simply shows the depth in batting Sri Lanka got. One Match was won by Dishan, Another By Sanga and the last by Matthews. Mahela also didn't do too bad. The real find is Tisara Perera. Wonder how long can he keep the same form. Thisara and Matthews add a lot to the team. Upul Tharanga should look at himself with shame.
