Pakistan completed a clean sweep win against Sri Lanka after beating them by 36 runs in the third and final T20I in Lahore. Pakistan were playing against a major team at home after a long time as they were barred from hosting any international matches since the attack on Sri Lankan team by gunmen in 2009. They did host Zimbabwe for a bilateral series in 2015 while a World XI side visited Pakistan earlier this year for three-match T20I series. Batting first, Pakistan posted 180/3 in 20 overs, courtesy a 24-ball 51 from Shoaib Malik and later rode on Mohammad Amir’s phenomenal spell to restrict Sri Lanka to 144/9. Amir scalped a four-wicket haul in four overs. Here’s what pundits and experts have to say about the match.
What Amazing Performance Team Pakistan, #White Wash in both T20 and ODI series, some exciting eye candy moments witnessed this series 👍🏼🏏
