Misbah-ul-haq was dismissed by Sri lankan off spinner Rangana Herath in the 2nd One-Day international (ODI) at Hambantota on Tuesday. Misbah was building a partnership with Fawad Alam. They had just taken the batting powerplay but they could not capitalise on it. Herath is turning it around for the Lankans.

Earlier in the day, Thisara Perera and Angelo Mathews’s respective innings help Sri Lanka to set a challenging target of 310 runs against Pakistan in the 2nd One-Day International (ODI) at Hambantota on Tuesday. Sri Lanka recovered well after being reduced to 62/3 in the 11th over, as Mathews and Jayawradene’s 122 run stand helped them get back on track.
