Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews missed his maiden One-Day International (ODI) ton as he led the Sri Lankan innings against Pakistan in the second ODI at Hambantota on Tuesday. Mathews has carried his purple patch from Tests to the limited overs but an ODI ton continues to elude him.

In the first ODI of the series, Mathews scored a career-best 89 to take Lanka to 274. He went past that score with a boundary in the 48th over with a boundary. But that was it as Mathews gave a catch to Mohammad Hafeez off Wahab Riaz’s bowling scoring 93.

Mathews walked out to bat with the team score on 63 for three. He stitched a crucial partnership with Mahela Jayawardene and despite another batting collapse, he went on to score briskly and put on another stand with Thisara Perera.
