Sri Lanka Tour of Pakistan, 2019, 3rd T20I
A beleaguered Pakistan would fight to avoid a clean sweep when they meet Sri Lanka on Wednesday. Pakistan were on top of their game. Since 2016, they registered wins in 29 out of 33 T20Is. However, the tale has got twisted for them this year as they have only won one match out of six.
Sri Lanka pulled off a win in the first T20I and reciprocated it with another win in the second one. Bhanuka Rajapaksa scored 77 runs off 48 balls which included six sixes and four fours to help his team post a total of 182 for 6. For Pakistan, it seemed like a struggle of all sorts as none of their batsmen were able to cross the mark of 50. Only Imad Wasim could come close to the 50s mark as he finished his innings at 47 runs.
Sri Lanka would hope for a clean sweep in the last T20I after clinching their maiden bilateral T20I series win over Pakistan.
