Karachi: Mar 12, 2014
Sri Lanka chased down a challenging 261-run target in 46.2 overs with opener Lahiru Thirimanne notching a brilliant 101 despite defending champions Pakistan posting a tough 260 for 5 with Fawad Alam hitting a maiden hundred.
According to The Dawn, Akram said that he could not sleep for two days as he failed to understand the manner in which Pakistan used their bowlers in the final of the tournament, adding that they did not use their bowlers well while defending a 260-plus total.
The victory was Sri Lanka’s fifth Asia Cup title, equalling India’s number of triumphs in the event initiated in 1984, the report added.
