Mahela Jayawardene departed after scoring a half century in the second One-Day International (ODI) against Pakistan at Hambantota. Jayawardene was run-out on 63, by a precise Umar Akmal throw.

Earlier, Upul Tharanga nicked one straight into the hands of Umar Akmal. Kumar Sangakkara was looking in good touch, and dispatched two boundaries in the tenth over bowled by Junaid Khan. But, he too couldn’t convert the start into a big score and fell after scoring 25.

Both teams will look to strike the right team balance ahead of ICC World Cup 2015.
