Initially, when Babar Azam departed early with Pakistan at 37/2, Sri Lanka seemed to have the upper hand. However, Mohammad Rizwan and Abdullah Shafique’s centuries, a 176-run partnership, paved the way for a remarkable six-wicket victory with 10 balls to spare.
Pakistan’s next challenge awaits in Ahmedabad at Narendra Modi Stadium, where they face arch-rivals India on October 14.
