Kumar Sangakkara was dismissed by Wahab Riaz in the 2nd One-Day International (ODI). Wahab Riaz has done it again. He was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan in the last match. Riaz bowled a short ball to Sangakkara and he pulled hard but it went straight down the throat of the fielder placed at the square leg position. Sri lanka were scoring at a brisk pace but after Sangakkara’s dismissal the run rate came down to 5.77.  Catch live blog of the 2nd ODI between Sri Lanka and Pakistan here
