  • So that is it from us for this game! Pakistan have put in an all-round performance to take a 1-0 lead in the series. Sri Lanka were pretty poor and let us hope they learn from their mistakes and come out fighting. Will we see the visitors level the series in the next game? It will be played on the 16th of October in Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (1100 GMT), 1500 local. Till then, good bye and cheers!
  • Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed starts by thanking the almighty. Credits his batsman and bowlers for the way they played. Reckons he has a lot of options with the ball and he makes full use of those. Opines the conditions here are favorable for batting first. Ends by saying the experienced players gave them confidence after the loss in the Test series.
  • Sri Lankan skipper, Upul Tharanga says they lost five wickets cheaply. Mentions at one stage they could have kept them under 270 but were sloppy in the field towards the end. He feels the batsmen need to take responsibility and score big in the next game.
  • Man of the Match, Shoaib Malik says they were bowling well in the middle overs. Admits rotating the strike was important. Further adds a few dot balls can be covered in the end. Credits Babar Azam and Hafeez for their innings. Mentions when you have experience you need to stand up when the team is down.
  • The Sri Lankan batsmen did not apply themselves in and there was only one 50-run stand in their innings. Lahiru Thirimanne and Akila Dananjaya were the only two who showed some fight but it was never going to be enough. Earlier in the day, the away side managed to win the toss and put the home side into bat. They set a massive 293 as a target courtesy of a hundred from Babar Azam and a breezy 81 from Shoaib Malik. The target proved to be too much for the visitors as the Pakistan bowlers kept chipping away at the wickets and made it difficult for them. Stay tuned for the presentation.
  • The Lankans have been blown away by Pakistan. Chasing 293 was never going to be easy and they got off to the worst start possible losing Dickwella early and then they never recovered. Ruman Raees ran through the top order and then Hasan Ali made a mockery of the middle order. Even the spinners did their bit, with Hafeez being the pick as he was economical and also took the all important wicket of Tharanga.
  • 49.6That's it! PAKISTAN WIN BY 83 RUNS! Shortish outside off, Lakmal cuts it through backward point for a run. Sri Lanka have managed to play out the fifty overs. Pakistan will be disappointed with that. They would have wanted to bowl them out early. Nevertheless they will be happy with the fact that they have won it. It is their 5th consecutive win and it is Sri Lanka's 8th consecutive loss in ODIs.

  • 15.6OUT! Two in two, Hasan Ali is on fire! What a delivery for a new batsman! Siriwardana is gone for a golden duck. Ali steams in from round the wicket and bowls a yorker around middle and leg. Siriwardana plays all around that and that's that. Hasan Ali displays his trademark celebration. The crowd is roaring and so are the Pakistan players on the field. The visitors are in deep, deep trouble. Ali will be on a hat-trick in the next over. 67/5
  • Milinda Siriwardana is the next man in.
  • Drinks!
  • 15.5OUT! Sri Lanka slip further into misery! The youngster, Kusal Mendis, is the next victim. Ali bangs it short around off and middle, Mendis looks to pull but gets a top edge.

  • 8.2Flatter around middle and leg, turned away through square leg for a run.
  • 8.1Serves it around off, Tharanga pushes it towards covers.
  • Mohammad Hafeez is brought in to bowl now. This should be interesting. He has a slip in place.

Raees steams in and spears it on a length around middle and leg. Chandimal looks to clip it away but misses and gets struck on the pads. The players appeal and the umpire raises the finger slowly. Chandimal decides to take the DRS. Hawk Eye shows three reds and signals the end of Dinesh's stay. He looked off balance as he played that shot and that isn't good. Raees is on a roll here in Dubai! The visitors are rocked early in the piece.
  • Is he a goner? Pakistan appeal and the umpire raises the dreaded finger slowly to rule Chandimal out LBW. The batsman chooses to review that.

  • 1.4This ball is well outside off, shouldered arms to by Upul.

  • 0.1Starts off with an extra! Khan sprays this delivery down the leg side. Dickwella looks to flick but misses. The umpire has to stretch his arms off the first ball. Not the ideal start for the hosts. The visitors are off!
  • The chase is set to get underway. Sri Lanka have a mountain to climb. The openers Niroshan Dickwella and Upul Tharanga would be well aware of their importance in such a scenario. They would look to give the visitors a flying start with the bat. For Pakistan, Junaid Khan will begin with the first new cherry. He has a couple of slips in place. Here we go...
