Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI Scoreboard

Only a defiant half-century from Lahiru Thirimanna (53, 74 balls, 3 fours) and a lower-order resistance from Akila Dhananjaya (50 not out, 72 balls, 5 fours) and Jeffrey Vandersay (25, 47 balls) saved Sri Lanka (209/8) from an even bigger defeat.

Fall of wickets: 1-30, 2-34, 3-55, 4-67, 5-67, 6-108, 7-132, 8-200 Did not bat: Lahiru Gamage Bowling: Junaid Khan 6-0-28-0 (1w), Rumman Raees 9-1-49-3, Mohammad Hafeez 10-2-32-1, Hasan Ali 9-0-36-3 (3w), Shoaib Malik 5-0-19-0, Shadab Khan 7-0-26-1 (2w), Imad Wasim 4-0-15-0 Toss: Sri Lanka Result: Pakistan won by 83 runs. But, having upset all calculations by sweeping Pakistan 2-0 in the Test series that ended on Tuesday, Sri Lanka would be hoping to inflict a bit of series pain on the home side here. With the first off the two sixes in the game, Malik completed 100 sixes in the ODI format.

"I always try to bat as per the requirement of the team and I am happy I did that today as well", said Malik.

Azam's hundred came off 128 balls in the next over with a single, but three runs later he miscued a drive off paceman Suranga Lakmal, who finished with 2-47 from his ten overs.

Sri Lanka, who won the preceding two-match Test series 2-0, had spearhead Nuwan Perera ruled out from the one-day series with a hamstring injury and inducted Lahiru Gamage.

Pakistan plundered 89 in the last ten overs.

They didn't have the greatest of starts as Ahmed Shehzad (0, 12 balls) once again failed to make the most of the chance he was offered by the Pakistani think-tank.

He would add 64 with Fakhar (43) before the opener was beaten by Akila Dananjaya's googly a ball after hitting him out of the park.

The left-handed Zaman played well during his 45-ball 42 though, hitting four fours and a six.

The remaining matches will be held in Abu Dhabi (October 16 and 18) and in Sharjah (October 20 and 23).
