If this performance could have come earlier then surely Pakistan would have easily qualified for the finals.they are lacking stability in their batting and bowling. Except for Amir no other player from Pakistani player is making the consistent performance.
Amir is on the move here in the Asia Cup as well. he is swinging he ball both ways and the seam movement from him is absolutely matchless. He undoubtedly is the best bowler from the Asia Cup so far despite not picking up a huge number of wickets.
Pakistan today failed in the bowling. This was a batting wicket and the Sri Lankans openers Dilshan and Chandimal did their jobs well. They hit some staggering knocks. Their innings made sure Sri Lanka posts a good total.
Pakistan did well in the final overs and managed low runs else the target would have been much higher than 150. In the batting, this was a collective effort from Sharjeel, Sarfraz and Umar Akmal.
Sharjeel showed how good a hitter he is. Once he got settled he opened up and slammed some really hard strokes to the fence. Sharjeel hits the 30s but then launched one into the deep and got caught.
He and Sarfraz built a decent partnership. Sarfraz was special as he held the innings together and when it mattered the most he was there for Pakistan. Sarfraz hit 38 and his innings was the crucial one. He was later replaced by Umar Akmal who batted right till the end. This is a good win by Pakistan. They have chased down the highest total in the Asia Cup so far.
