Pakistan continued their domination over Sri Lanka, as they registered another convincing nine-wicket win in the fifth and final ODI at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium on Monday. Pakistan, therefore, registered a 5-0 whitewash over the Lankans. Meanwhile, following the match, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was all praises for his bowlers. It was Pakistan’s new fast-bowling sensation Usman Khan who wreaked havoc on the Lankan batsmen in the fifth ODI, claiming a five-for while this also was Pakistan’s ninth consecutive ODI win following the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 title triumph.

“I am very happy because when you give an opportunity to someone and he performs, its great. Usman finished the match in the first five overs. We’re going from strength to strength, we have lots of options. I want our batting to perform more, if we score 270-280, our bowling is strong to defend that. We did not have Mohammad Aamer due to injury but Usman filled that gap and throughout this series we did well with the ball and this is a great sign for us,” said Sarfraz in the post-match presentation ceremony, as reported by AFP.

Apart from Sarfraz, Sri Lankan skipper Upul Tharanga too credited the Pakistan bowlers for their splendid show. “Throughout the series we did not have answer to Pakistan’s bowling as they were outstanding. We’re not playing to our strengths, to our capability. We didn’t score 200 three times. Couldn’t handle the pressure, has no answers to Usman’s first spell. They were straight, always trying to get wickets [Pakistan’s bowlers],” he said.
