Sri lanka beat Pakistan by 77 runs in the second One-Day International at Hambantota and thereby squaring the series. It was an all-round performance by the Lankans. Pakistan went off to a flier at the start of their innings. Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Hafeez looked extremely efficient and they added 95 runs in tandem. They were well aware of the required run rate and were keeping at par with it. But unfortunately they kept losing wickets at regular intervals and the momentum shifted towards the Lankans.
