Earlier in the second ODI held in Karachi on September 30, Babar Azam’s 115 runs innings and Usman Shinwari’s five-fer helped Pakistan bag a thrashing victory over visitors.
Batting first, Pakistan scored 305 for seven in stipulated 50 overs. Apart from Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman also smashed his 12th fifty and Haris Sohail scored 40 before a miscommunication caused his run out. Iftikhar Ahmed also contributed reasonably with his 32 runs of just 20 balls.
From Sri Lanka, Shehan Jayasuriya and Dasun Shanaka built a 177-run partnership after half of the side had already returned to the pavilion for just 28 runs. Both of them scored 96 and 68 runs respectively but in the end, the entire Sri Lankan team was bowled out for 238 runs in 46.5 overs.
Usman Shinwari picked up 5 wickets by conceding 51 runs in his 10 overs. Shadab Khan took 2 wickets whereas Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim also took one wicket each.
