Angelo Mathews was the only real positive for the visitors in that fixture, hitting a half-century after the Pakistanis put the team into bat.

Mathews and Thirimanne put on a fifth wicket partnership of 68, but in the end the Sri Lankans total of 145-5 was not enough.

Shahid Afridi led the hosts’ onslaught with a brilliant quickfire 39 off 20 balls, which included three sixes and two fours as Pakistan cruised to a three wicket victory.

It means that the away side must now win this second tie in Dubai top level the series, before the two teams head into a one-day and then Test series.

After winning the t10 World Cup last year Sri Lanka’s No.1 spot in twenty over cricket is being greatly threatened and a win for the home side in this second match will see crowned the best in the world.
