Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Highlights: Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan by two wickets via DLS method in a super four match to secure their place in the final of the Asia Cup here on Thursday. Mohammad Rizwan (86 not out) and Iftikhar Ahmed (47) put up a 108-run stand to steer Pakistan to a commanding 252 for 7 after rain reduced the match to 42-overs a side contest. However, Kusal Mendis (91) led a valiant batting display alongside Charith Asalanka (49 not out) and Sadeera Samarawickrama (48) as Sri Lanka overhauled the target in 42 overs. Sri Lanka will take on India in final on Sunday. Earlier, opener Abdullah Shafique (52 off 69 balls) shared a 64-run stand with skipper Babar Azam (29) after opting to bat in the crucial fixture. But it was Rizwan and Iftikhar who provided the final flourish, taking Pakistan across the 250-run mark.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SRI LANKA REACH THEIR 2ND CONSECUTIVE ASIA CUP FINAL!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Asalanka clips it away and Sri Lanka can run an easy two. The defending champions are through to the final once again. They face India on Sunday to defend their title. What a chase this has been, Sri Lanka cruising for most of it, then it looked like Pakistan have been brought back in it by Iftikhar. Then it looked like Sri Lanka were back in front because of Asalanka, then Afridi's double strike made it look like Pakistan's match to lose. Then it all went bonkers in the final over, momentum swung this way and that, with just three balls to go Pakistan looked to be on top and at the end of it all, the home fans are singing away into the night.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUTSIDE EDGE AND FOUR! SL NEED 2 TO WIN OFF THE LAST BALL!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: And one run to tie the game and send this match to a Super Over. Asalanka swings at the fullish delivery, outside edge and there are no slips obviously, well out of reach for Rizwan and it goes to the boundary. The equation shifts again. Sweet cricket gods, what do Pakistan do here? Babar is talking away with Zaman, he can talk all he wants but this match has come down to a contest between the young fast bowler and Charith Asalanka, who is on 47 by the way, if anyone cares.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: RUN OUT, DOT BALL, SL NEED 6 OFF 2!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Madushan swings for the stars, misses it and Asalanka is already halfway down the track before Madushan looks up. He starts running, hesitates, none of it matters because in that time, Rizwan throws it to Zaman, who throws it on to the stumps. Pakistan were down and out, now they are outright favourites to win this.

Sep 15, 2023 12:54 AM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! A TWIST AGAIN!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Of course there had to be another little corner to turn before we see a conclusion to this epic of a match. Umpires come together to discuss if this full toss was too high for a few tantalising seconds before it becomes clear that Dhananjaya has indeed been caught at long on.

Sep 15, 2023 12:40 AM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Asalanka goes back over Afridi's head off the third ball of the 39th. Pick the bones out of that one, Afridi goes outside off with a slow one and Asalanka smahes it. Sri Lanka now need 22 off 21.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! PAKISTAN ARE BACK IN IT!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dasun Shanaka has picked out the fielder at long on, Iftikhar Ahmed has got his third. He goes for a slong sweep but it has come off the bottom end of the bat.

Sep 15, 2023 12:28 AM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Overthrows! 2 runs gifted there

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: This is the last thing Pakistan want now. Asalanka cuts the second ball of Afridi's over to point. Shadab Khan, probably Pakistan's best fielder is there, Asalanka clearly not looking to go anywhere by the time Shadab shapes up for a throw but he lets one rip anyway. He misses the stumps and there is no one to back him up, the batters run 2, they now need 34 to win off 33.

Sep 15, 2023 12:26 AM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 216/4 in 36 overs, need 36 to win off 36

Sep 15, 2023 12:21 AM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Stunning catch from Haris! 

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Mendis denied a century! He stands his ground though and the umpires go upstairs to see if this was a legitimate catch. Length ball floated in by Iftikhar, it gets a leading edge as Mendis looks to clip this on side. Haris leaps forward from extra cover and takes a good catch diving forward. Replays show that he clearly had fingers underneath the ball. Mendis out in the 90s for the second time in this tournament.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Samarawickrama is stumped!

Iftikhar Ahmed had changed the tide with the bat, has he changed the tide with the ball as well? He comes down the track and is deceived by the lack of turn, Rizwan does the rest.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Concussion test done

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Samarawickrama seems fine now. The ball had hit him on the visor just above the grill. That helmet is changed, Shadab bowling to Mendis now from the other end.

Sep 14, 2023 11:45 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Samarawickrama has been hit!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: He is in real pain here, takes his helmet off and crouches down on the ground. Afridi is the bowler and his bouncer hits Samarawickrama flush on the head.

Sep 14, 2023 11:41 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 160/2 in 27 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The reintroduction of Afridi hasn't worked and Shadab has been brought back but the singles and doubles continue to flow for Sri Lanka. They need 92 to win now from 90. 

Sep 14, 2023 11:32 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shaheen Afridi returns

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis and Samarawickrama have taken the wind out of Pakistan's sails and they need a change pronto. In comes their premier pacer but he himself had leaked runs in his first spell. Conundrums conundrums.

Sep 14, 2023 11:25 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis hits it square of the wicket and that is Sri Lanka's first boundary in nearly six overs.

Sep 14, 2023 11:12 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: 50 run partnership

It has come in just 42 balls, despite the fact that there haven't been too many boundaries and that is because both players have been rotating strike for fun. 

Sep 14, 2023 11:07 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 116/2 in 19 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shadab Khan taken off the attack and Iftikhar Ahmed has been brought on in his place. This is not good for Pakistan at all, their premier spinner has hardly been at his best throughout this tournament and he has been woeful today.

Sep 14, 2023 11:02 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! 14 runs off the over

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Very short and wide again from Shadab and Samarawickrama has punished him again. He moves to 22 off 18, Mendis on 38 off as many.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Shadab continues to leak runs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! 100 up for Sri Lanka

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Short and wide from Shadab, which is anything but what the field has been set for, Samarawickrama stays back and cuts it hard past point. Easy runs and poor bowling from Shadab.

Sep 14, 2023 10:48 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 89/2 in 15 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kusal Mendis is on 31 off 33, Sadeera Samarawickrama has scored 7 in 5. The run rate has gone below the required rate but only just so. Sri Lanka now need some patient, responsible batting and they will reach that territory where the fielding side might start getting desperate.

Sep 14, 2023 10:40 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! 

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shadab gets Nissanka! Flighted lengthball on middle stump, Nissanka tries to go over the bowler's head and jumps down the track but it came from the bottom of the bat. It was too full and the ball goes right back to the bowler.

Sep 14, 2023 10:16 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Nissanka once again and this brings up Sri Lanka's 50 in 7.3 overs.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 36/1 in 6 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis on 7 off many balls, Nissanka on 9 off 21. Quite an effort on the boundary off the last ball of that over but the batters ran three and so just one run saved.

Sep 14, 2023 10:05 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 32/1 in 5 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Mendis on 4 off 6, Nissanka on 8 off 16. Mendis clipped the second delivery off his pads to the boundary to get off the mark, Shaheen Afridi leaking runs here.

Sep 14, 2023 10:03 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well Nissanka had nothing for 13 balls but now he has hit two fours off Zaman and is away. The fourth ball is driven brilliantly through covers and then Nissanka drives the next delivery square on the up.

Sep 14, 2023 9:59 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! PERERA IS RUN OUT!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: How about that, Kusal Perera, who had scored 17 off 8 has now been run out.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Sri Lanka 11/0 in 1 over

He first hits a four off the fourth ball of the match and then slaps Afridi over mid-off for the second. For the second over comes Pakistan's own baby Malinga, Zaman Khan on his ODI debut. He replaces the injured Haris Rauf in this squad and it was Haris who gave him his first ODI cap earlier today.
