Coming into the T20I series as the favorites, Pakistan recorded an unimpressive display to lose the three-game series to a second string Sri Lankan unit. The boys in green were expected to come hard after losing the first contest. However, Sri Lanka’s passion was enough to quieten Pakistan’s experience.
One of the rare positives for Pakistan was the fielding effort of the home team. In comparison to their fielding in the first game of the series, the boys in green were found much better as they produced three crucial run-outs to dent the Islanders. Apart from this, the ground fielding too was better than before as the fielders were found throwing themselves on the ground.
Nevertheless, it all ended in smoke for the green team as they were knocked out by an inexperienced side. With the series decided already, the last contest won’t be nothing more than a dead rubber. However, it will provide Pakistan an opportunity to avoid an embarrassing defeat at the home ground.
