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 JayawardeneKumar Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews.
