49.5FOURMalinga to Fawad Alam, FOUR, full and on the stumps, Fawad gets inside the line and plays the pick up shot superbly, he finds the gap as well as the ball races to the deep backward square leg fence259/5
49.4OUTMalinga to U Akmal, out Caught by Priyanjan!! Malinga picks up another 5-fer, his 2nd in as many matches. This was the slower delivery around off, Akmal tries to send it over the cow corner but is decieved by the lack of pace, the ball goes off the top edge to short third man, Priyanjan settles under it and takes a very good catch. U Akmal c Priyanjan b Malinga 59(42) [4s-7]255/5
49FOURLakmal to Fawad Alam, FOUR, rubbish delivery to end the over, full toss outside off, Fawad shuffles across and tries to heave it over deep mid wicket, the ball balloons off the top edge to the deep backward square leg fence251/4
48FOURT Perera to U Akmal, FOUR, length delivery outside off, Akmal charges down the wicket and lofts it beautifully between deep extra cover and long off to pick up another boundary.243/4
47.5FOURT Perera to U Akmal, FOUR, brilliant batting! This was a low full toss outside off, Akmal gets down and slices it to the square third man fence, nice use of the wrist as he opened the face of the bat. Akmal also gets to his 19th ODI fifty, his 3rd fifty plus score in this Asia Cup239/4
47.1SIXT Perera to Fawad Alam, SIX, Fawad Alam gets to his maiden ODI ton in style. This was a gifted full toss on leg-stump, Fawad heaves it away over deep mid wicket for a maximum. He takes off his helmet and acknowledges the crowd and his team-mates232/4

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
46.1FOURTalha to Mathews, FOUR, short and outside off, Mathews executes a half-pull, half-paddle to the deep backward square leg fence, poor Sharjeel jogs and watches the ball reach the fence259/5
45.5FOURJunaid Khan to de Silva, FOUR, poor line and poor length to boot. Junaid Khan bowls this full and down leg, de Silva just helps it across to the deep fine leg fence253/5
44.1OUTAjmal to Thirimanne, out Bowled!! Oh boy, what a ball! The middle stump is knocked out. Ajmal unleashes his doosra, Thirimanne does not figure it out, the ball shoots through his defences to bowl him through the gate. Nonetheless, it was a top quality knock from Lahiru under immense pressure. Thirimanne b Ajmal 101(108) [4s-13]247/5
44OTHERJunaid Khan to Thirimanne, 1 run, full and straight, Thirimanne leans forward and flicks it away to deep square leg247/4
43.1FOURJunaid Khan to Mathews, FOUR, Junaid Khan offers a fullish ball outside off, Mathews steps out and carts it for all he's worth over cover243/4
41.4OUTJunaid Khan to Priyanjan, out Caught by U Akmal!! Injudicious shot selection from the young tyro. Was he trying to dab it down to third man, particularly with a slip in place? Yes he was and he only manages to edge this good length ball outside off from round the stumps to Akmal, who makes no mistake this time around. Priyanjan c U Akmal b Junaid Khan 13(18) [4s-2]233/4
