Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews addressed the media after Pakistan’s four-wicket win against the hosts in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Hambantota. Sri Lanka are now trailing visitors Pakistan 0-1 in the three-match ODI series following their 2-0 Test series win.
The match turned out to be an absolute thriller, as Pakistan chased down the 276-run target set by Sri Lanka off the penultimate delivery of the match. Mahela Jayawardene and Mathews himself set the tone for the hosts with terrific fifties, but Shoaib Maqsood and Fawad Alam hit half-centuries in return, while Shahid Afridi scored a cruical 10-ball 14 at the death to help Pakistan to a 1-0 series lead.
