Asia Cup 2016: Pakistan need 151 runs to win

DHAKA: Thanks to Dilshan’s unbeaten 75, Sri Lanka put a good total of 151 runs on the board against Pakistan in tenth and last league match of Asia Cup Twenty20, at Sher e bangla Stadium, Dhaka.

Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi after winning the toss, elected to bowl first against Sri lanka.

The decision proved wrong as both Sri Lankan openers Tilkartne Dilshan and Dinseh Chandimal put up a 110-runs partnership.

Chandimal left the crease after his fifty, but Dilshan kept scoring runs, neutralizing Pakistan’s strong bowling lineup.

WIth his brilliant and unbeaten 75, Dilshan helped Sri Lanka put awinning total of 150/4 in 20 overs.
