Twitter erupts as Sri Lanka register their first-ever T20I series win over Pakistan

Posted On / /

Newcomer Bhanuka Rajapaksa hit a quickfire half-century while Nuwan Pradeep and Wanindu Hasaranga recorded their career-best bowling figures as Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan by 35 runs in the second T20I at Lahore on Monday.

Rajapaksa’s 77 off 48 balls guided Sri Lanka to a competitive total of 182/6.

Pacer Pradeep finished with 4/25 while leg-spinner Hasaranga took 3/38 – collecting his wickets in the space of just four balls – as Sarfaraz Ahmed & Co. were bowled out for 147 in 19 overs.

The victory gave Sri Lanka their first T20I series win over Pakistan in seven attempts as they took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Sri Lanka won the first match by 67 runs, also in Lahore. The last match will be at the same venue on Wednesday.
