The hosts beat Pakistan in the second One-Day International (ODI) by 77 runs at Hambantota. It looked all bleak for the Lankans when Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Hafeez took Pakistan to a commanding position after losing an early wicket. But they pulled things back in no time and went on to win the second ODI by a considerable margin.
Rangana Herath and Seekkuge Prasanna came in handy with their orthodox spin and took wickets at crucial moments. Sri Lankan openers have left them in a spot of bother as they failed abjectly in the series so far. Their middle order cannot be questioned when they have the likes of the mighty trio Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews.
