Pakistan play their last match of their tour of Sri Lanka here at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today when they take on the hosts in the second and final Twenty20. Playing some first-class cricket, visitors first removed Sri Lanka, in the three-Test series, then beat the hosts in the five-match ODI series. Continuing its winning streak, Shahid Afridi and his men won the first match against T20-captained Sri Lanka Lasith Malinga Thursday.
Pakistan now pumped-up – given the way they have done so far on the trip – can certainly end the tour with victory. Anwer Ali was man of the match. 46 (17).
