Sri Lanka have recovered very well and are being led by Mahela Jayawardene and Lahiru Thirimanne. In 23 overs, Sri Lanka are 131 for two. Jayawardene is on 36 and Thrimanne is on 51.
Shahid Afridi could have had Thirimanne, but the edge wasn’t collected by wicketkeeper Umar Akmal. Later, when Mohammad Hafeez was bowling, Thirimanne swept him and it spun as Umar Gul got in position to stop it on the boundary. As a result it went for four.
Jayawardene then hit Afridi four a boundary as Sri Lanka kept building on their score. Thirimanne guided Mohammad Talha through third-man to get a four and then took a single to move to 50.
