Pakistan vs Sri Lanka (PAK vs SL) 2nd ODI Highlights: Babar Azam’s hundred anchored the innings, and Iftikhar Ahmed added quick runs at the end to take Pakistan to 305/7 in Karachi. Chasing 306 under lights, Sri Lanka got off to a disastrous start, losing half their side within the first 10 overs. But from thereon, Dasun Shanaka and Shehan Jayasuriya breathed new life in the Lankan innings helping them to 194/5 in 38 overs. Floodlights failure has only added more drama to the chase.

After rain played spoilsport in the first ODI, Pakistan will gear up once again to go up against a depleted Sri Lankan team at National Staidum in Karachi on Monday. The second one-day international of Sri Lanka’s tour of Pakistan will be the first one to be held in Karachi in 10 years. Originally scheduled on Sunday, the match was rescheduled to Monday because of the unseasonal rains in Karachi, as it is set to host a one-day international for the first time in 10 years.

Sehan Jayasuriya and Dasun Shanaka - with the highest sixth-wicket stand against Pakistan in ODIs gave their side a ray of hope but Usman Shinwari's 5/51 was simply too much to handle for the visitors.

    23:40 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    LBW, SL nine down

    Lbw!! Short of length, skids through from Riaz - getting nowhere as high as Kumara was expecting.  SL- 232/9 in 46 overs.

    Usman Shinwari completes five-wicket haul

    Sri Lanka lose wickets in quick succession

    Sri Lanka in deep trouble as the visitors lose Shehan Jayasuriya and Dasun Shanaka in quick succession. Jayasuriya was the first man to depart, who missed out on his maiden century by four runs. Shanaka falls in the next over as he tries to pull a half-tracker by Shadab Khan towards deep midwicket. He fails to clear the rope as Fakhar Zaman takes a brilliant diving catch.

    Jayasuriya, Shanaka stitch Sri Lanka's highest sixth-wicket stand

    The ongoing partnership between Shehan Jayasuriya and Dasun Shanaka, which currently stands at 166*, is Sri Lanka's highest sixth-wicket stand in ODIs.

The pair have added 129 in 149 balls as Sri Lanka edge past the 150-run mark. While Jayasuriya is batting on 65 off 89 balls, Shanaka smashes the ball towards the third man area for a boundary to bring up his half-century.

    20:42 (IST)30 Sep 2019

    28-5 (Oshada Fernando, 10.1)

    20:29 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Caught behind!

    Usman Shinwari on fire! This time it is an under-edge and umpires want to check if the wicketkeeper took it cleanly. He did and Thirimanne has to go back for a duck. Sri Lanka's most experienced batsman is gone. SL- 22/4 in 8 overs.

    20:27 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Avishka Fernando falls

    Sri Lanka have lost their top order with just 22 on board! The batsman tried to clear the in-field, but ends up sending it straight to Fakhar Zaman at mid-off. This is poor, poor batting.

    20:17 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Amir outsmarts Gunathilaka

    This really good bowling by Amir as he picks up Gunathilaka with a seam up slower ball.  Chasing 306, SL have got off to a poor start. Just 6 overs bowled and already two in the dugout. SL- 22/2

    20:14 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Usman Shinwari gets the breakthrough

    Usman Shinwari strikes early for Pakistan! Samarawickrama never quite got going, and he's bowled for 6. An inswing delivery and just enough gap to go through and knock the timber! SL - 18/1

    20:10 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Sri Lanka resume

    Gunathilaka and Samarawickrama are at the crease. Gunathilaka is on strike. Amir will open the attack, Lets Play! and a FOUR of the first ball and Gunathilaka is on the charge! SL - 5/0 after 1 over.

    19:18 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    PAK - 305/7 in 50 overs

    A run out of the last ball and PAK finish at- 305/7 in 50 overs Iftikhar Ahmed's 32 off 20 balls gives the impetus towards the end. Babar Azam's masterful hundred anchored the innings while Fakhar Zaman also hit an imporatant fifty.

    19:14 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Biggest six so far

    Iftikhar Ahmed spots the slower ball, sets himself up in the crease and swings it over square leg. 10 off the first two balls. Surely Pakistan is crossing 300 now.

    19:10 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    PAK eye late flourish

    Iftikhar Ahmed gets in line of the short of length delivery outside off, absolutely thwacked by Iftikhar Ahmed who belts the flat-batted drive over extra cover. PAK- 285/6 in 49 overs.

    18:56 (IST)30 Sep 2019

    Babar Azam's innings is over as he's GONE for a masterful and brilliant 115. PAK- 261/5 after 45.5

    18:55 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Back-to-back fours for Babar

    The first one is crashed through backward point and the next is back of a length delivery around the waist, Azam whips the pull behind square. Back-to-back fours off Kumara

    18:50 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Sarfaraz Run Out!

    Sarfaraz drives the ball to short cover and decides to go for a single. Thihits the bulls eye at the non-striker's end. Sarfaraz is yards short. Sarfaraz is gone fore 8(12). Pakistan lose their fourth wicket.

    18:43 (IST)30 Sep 2019

    Fewest innings to 11 ODI 100s:

    64 Hashim Amla
    65 Quinton de Kock
    71 BABAR AZAM**
    82 Virat Kohli
    86 S Dhawan/ D Warner
    88 Aaron Finch

    18:42 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Babar Azam slams 11th ODI century

    Gets there with a boundary &  Babar Azam slams 11th ODI century! Continues his imperious form this year. Azam's last five innings against Sri Lanka-  103, 101, 30, 69, 107 not out.

    18:31 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Hint of reverse swing

    Nuwan Pradeep with a back of a length ball and it pitches outside off, Azam mistimes his front foot punch. Was there a hint of reverse swing? Seemingly yes, he gets the next one to dart in but just ever so slightly. PAK 227-3 in 42 overs. Projected score is 270.

    18:28 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Haris Sohail falls against the run of play

    Poor communication between Sohail and Babar Azam and that leads to a run-out, Sohail is gone. Azam dabbed the ball towards the point and thought of a run and in that span Sohail was more than halfway down. Azam sends him back and there is confusion. Sohail has to run all the way back, he is short.  PAK- 215/3, 39.2 overs.

    18:12 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    200 up for Pakistan

    Haris Sohail nudges one down the ground and with that 200 comes up for Pakistan. At this rate they will reach 273. 9 runs per over from this stage takes them to 319. How much will they get from here?

    17:58 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Expensive Over!

    Hasaranga is being carted all over the park at the National Stadium in Karachi by Babar Azam. First a no-ball results in a free hit and this sent straight into the stands after which Hasaranga drops it short, Azam goes on the backfoot and deposits him over the mid-wicket region. 17 runs of the over and its time for drinks on field. PAK- 183/2 in 34 overs.

    17:52 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Another milestone for Babar Azam

    Babar Azam becomes the fastest Pakistan Batsman to score 1000 ODI runs in a calendar year. He achives the feat in only 19 Innings.

    17:46 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Fifty for Babar Azam

    A fantastic cover drive brings up the fifty for Babar Azam! Yet another fifty for one of Pakistan's finest ! His 16th in ODI cricket. PAK- 155/2 in 31 overs.

    17:40 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Another lethargic effort

    This is pretty dissapointing from the visitors and most importantly it is the skipper, who's having a tough time stopping the ball. Babar Azam benefits again as Thirimanne charges in from short fine-leg and misfields. Single turns into a double. PAK- 146/2 after 30 overs.

    17:15 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Sloppy Sri Lanka

    Babar Azam drives towards mid-off,  along the ground and Thirimanne is guilty of taking his eyes off the ball and its away for a boundary. Needless and quite dissapointing from the Lankan captain.

    17:03 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Gone! Fakhar Zaman

    He read the googly from Hasaranga but went too hard. Out for 54 (65 balls). PAK 105/2 in 21 overs.

    16:58 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    100 up for Pakistan!

    Fakhar along with Babar Azam takes things in control as the duo help Pakistan edge past the 100-run-mark in the 21st over. Meanwhile, Fakhar also completes his 12th ODI fifty. Will he go on to a big score?

    16:58 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Fakhar gets to Fifty!

    With a single towards  short third man Fakhar Zaman brings up his 12th half-century in ODI cricket. Will  he convert this into a big one tonight? The crowd is chanting his name

    16:33 (IST)30 Sep 2019

    Slight turn after the ball pitches outside off and it hits the knee roll of Imam. Huge appeal by the visitors but the umpire doesn't seem interested, however, the Sri Lankans think they have got their man. TV replay confirms that the ball was hitting the top of middle stump. Sri Lanka have finally managed to break the 73-run opening stand between Imam and Fakhar as the former is trapped LBW by Wanindu Hasaranga. Imam departs after scoring 31 off 41 deliveries, Pakistan 73/1 at the end of 14.4 overs. 

    16:10 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    End of 1st powerplay

    Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq get Pakistan off to a steady start as the pair add 47 at the end of 1st powerplay. Fakhar is playing on 29, while his partner Imam is on 18. 

    15:55 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Imam, Fakhar take charge

    As Sri Lanka are searching for early wickets, runs are coming freely for Pakistani. The pair of Imam and Fakhar have added 19 in the last 18 deliveries as Pakistan reach 27/0 at the end of six overs. Imam is playing on 12 (16), while his partner Fakhar is on 15 (20). 

    15:43 (IST)30 Sep 2019
    Tidy start by Sri Lanka

    So far it has been a tidy start by Sri Lanka, as Shehan Jayasuriya started things off with a maiden over. Both Imam and Fakhar are not taking any risks as Pakistan add 8/0 on the scoreboard after the end of three overs. Can Sri Lanka do some early damage?  

    Pakistan Squad: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Usman Shinwari, Iftikhar Ahmed, Abid Ali
