Scintillating Sri Lanka topped Asian champions for sixth time as profligate Pakistan collapse at ultimate hurdle

Horror begin to chase and laborious batting in center overs causes Inexperienced Shirts’ downfall; earlier, defensive captaincy had allowed Sri Lanka to publish 171.

A horror begin to their run chase and laborious batting within the center overs consigned Pakistan to a 23-run defeat by the hands of Sri Lanka within the ultimate of the Asia Cup 2022 on the Dubai Worldwide Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

The Inexperienced Shirts had a superb begin to their night, having received the all-important toss and deciding to area first — a trick that had labored for them each single time within the match till tonight.

Their tempo assault that includes Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf gave them a dream begin and at one level it had appeared as if Sri Lanka would even be capable of bat out their full overs. Nonetheless, after the primary 10 overs, Pakistan captain Babar Azam surprisingly opted for a defensive method, permitting Sri Lanka to make an nearly miraculous restoration to complete with 170-6.

In reply, Babar Azam failed for the sixth straight time within the match and Fakhar Zaman was castled on a golden duck. That pressured the pairing of Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed to bat conservatively — a job they in all probability did for longer than required.

Because the required run fee soared to 12, Pakistan batters took their probabilities however their gambles failed miserably as Sri Lankans didn’t permit them an inch and didn’t put a foot mistaken.

In the long run, an astonishing collapse noticed Pakistan fold for 147 as Sri Lanka have been topped champions for the sixth time.
