The equation was pretty simple ahead of the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka fixture – the winning side advances to the Asia Cup 2023 Final. But, if no result was possible, Sri Lanka would make it through to the final due to their better net run rate.
With no such net run rate pressure, the game proceeded with Pakistan batting first after winning the toss, following a couple of delays due to a wet outfield.
Pakistan mustered 252 runs in the 42-over-per-side contest, thanks to Mohd Rizwan’s and Iftikhar Ahmed’s valiant knocks. While the total seemed commendable and safe, little did Pakistan know that their key pacers were not available with them to defend it and the bowlers available were not good enough on that particular day to restrict the opposition well short of the target.
Sri Lanka began its hunt of 252 runs but got an early jolt in the form of Kusal Parerra’s wicket. Soon Prathum Nissanka also got dismissed after adding 50 runs to the total. But the entire game changed with the onset of Kusal Mendis and Sadeera Samarawickrama, who together a 100-run sold partnership.
While Kusal Mendis scored a match-winning 91-run innings, Samarawickrama was dismissed two shy of his well-made half-century. The two aforementioned batters made sure that their team was in a comfortable position and that there was no immediate run rate pressure.
The final blow in the Sri Lankan chase from Charith Asalanka, who remained unbeaten at a score of 49 runs. The batter made sure that he placed the final nail in the coffin to close the chase with a win.
Sri Lanka won the game by 2 wickets via the DLS method, which was used to reduce the game by 8 overs per side. With this, Sri Lanka have made it through to the Asia Cup 2023 Final.
