A stunning last over by Achini Kulasuriya helped Sri Lanka beat Pakistan in the second semifinal and march into the final of the ongoing Women’s Asia Cup 2022 on Thursday.

Pakistan needed nine runs off the final six deliveries, and Kulasuriya bowled tight lines to bring the equation down to 3 runs off the last ball. The right-armer ended up delivering a full toss, but Nida Dar could not clear cover.

Kavisha Dilhari, who was positioned at the cover, dropped the catch but recovered well to return a throw to the wicketkeeper, who ran Dar out to seal a one-run victory in a nail-biting thriller. The Islanders will now meet Team India in the summit clash, who defeated Thailand in the first semifinal today.

Earlier in the game, Sri Lanka managed to post 122/6 in 20 overs, with Harshitha Madavi scoring the most 35 off 41 balls. For the Women in Green, Nashra Sandhu picked up three wickets while conceding 17 in her quota of 4 overs.

Brief Scores: Sri Lanka Women 122/6 (Harshitha Madavi 35, Anushka Sanjeewani 26, Nashra Sandhu 3/17) beat Pakistan Women 121/6 (Bismah Maroof 42, Nida Dar 26, Inoka Ranaweera 2/17) by one run.
