Mahela Jayawardene and Lahiru Thirimanne’s 100-run stand has put Sri Lanka in a position to win the Asia Cup 2014 final against Pakistan at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. Jayawardene is on 43 and Thirimanne is on 70. In 28 overs, Sri Lanka are 157 for two.

 

The duo came together in the 11th over when Saeed Ajmal picked up the wickets of Kusal Perera and Kumar Sangakkara off consecutive deliveries. Pakistan have not been helped by the lapses in the field and it is now costing them as Sri Lanka are cruising along to victory.
