Dubai: Dec 13, 2013

 

Kusal Perera hit a brilliant 59-ball 84 to help Sri Lanka post 211 for three in the second Twenty20 International against Pakistan in Dubai on Friday.

 

Perera, who hit five fours and four sixes, put on a rapid 100 with fellow opener Tillakaratne Dilshan, who made a 33-ball 48 as Sri Lanka, sent into bat, posted the highest ever total against Pakistan in all Twenty20 cricket.

 

Perera added another 77 for the third wicket with Kumar Sangakkara, who made a 21-ball 44 not out with four boundaries and two sixes.

 

Dilshan hit eight boundaries before debutant Seekkuge Prasanna lifted the tempo with a blistering eight-ball 21 with the help of two boundaries and two sixes.

 

Despite the run-feast, Saeed Ajmal finished with two for 25.

 

The previous highest T20 total against Pakistan was 191, made twice by Australia.

 

Pakistan lead the two-match series 1-0 after winning the first game by three wickets, also in Dubai on Wednesday.

 

Brief scores:

 

Sri Lanka 211 for 3 in 20 overs (Kusal Perera 84, Tillakaratne Dilshan 48, Kumar Sangakkara 44; Saeed Ajmal 2 for 25) vs Pakistan.
