Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2014, 3rd ODI at Dambulla: Misbah-ul-Haq run out  by Tillakaratne Dilshan

Aug 30, 2014

Misbah-ul-Haq was run out by Tillakaratne Dilshan in the final One-Day International of the three match series at Dambulla on Saturday. There was never a run there. A bad call from the skipper himself. They had to take chances but not at the cost of a wicket. Tillakaratne Dilshan picked the ball up in one hand and went for the wicket at the non-strikers end. Fawad Alam and Misbah were looking to reshape their innings.  This wicket left Pakistan reeling at 47 for four in the 17th over.

Earlier, the hosts defeated Pakistan by 77 runs in the 2nd One-Day International at Hambantota, thereby squaring the series at 1-1. The fans witnessed a cracker of a a game and they can expect some more fireworks from these two sides, for one last time time in this three match ODI series.
