On Friday night, Sri Lanka’s revival as a T20I squad continued as they easily defeated Pakistan by five wickets with three overs remaining after dismissing them for a pitiful 121 just two days prior to the same sides’ matchup in the final on Sunday.

Even though both sides rested a few key players, the intensity was unaffected. Dasun Shanaka refrained from trying anything new, sticking to the tried-and-true strategy of winning the toss and bowling first. The top leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga’s recovery of his rhythm to capture 3/21 before opener Pathum Nissanka stayed unbeaten on 55 off 48 to lead Sri Lanka to victory was the most encouraging element of the bowling.
