Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Hafeez are leading Pakistan’s recovery in the first match of the Asia Cup 2014 tournament. Pakistan reached 70 for one after 12 overs, and need another 227 runs to win from 38 overs.

 

Hafeez is batting on 13 off 14 balls with the help of two boundaries, whereas Shehzad picked up quite well after a sluggish start to reach 27 not out with the help of four boundaries.

 

Earlier in the match, Lahiru Thirimanne slammed his second One-Day International (ODI) century while Kumar Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews struck fifties, to help Sri Lanka post a challenging target of 297 against Pakistan.

 

Electing to bat first, Sri Lanka squandered a perfect opportunity of posting a huge total as they reached 296 for six in their allotted 50 overs.

 

Thirimanne faced 110 balls, smashed 11 boundaries and a six to score 102, and added 161 runs for the second wicket with Sangakkara to help Sri Lanka consolidate their stand, before Pakistan fought and pulled back things in control.
