* Don't lap sweep when Sangakkara keeps

Aug 27 (ESPNCI) Tillakaratne Dilshan had begun the innings in typically flamboyant fashion, hitting three early boundaries before there was a caught-behind appeal off Junaid Khan in the second over. The umpire turned it down, but the wicketkeeper Umar Akmal was absolutely certain, signalling for the referral at least a dozen times as he walked up to discuss with his team-mates. His confidence convinced Misbah-ul-Haq to go for the appeal though neither Snicko nor Hot Spot is available this series.

* Mathews and Thisara turn it on

Sri Lanka 310/9 (50.0 ov) Pakistan

Aug 26 (ESPNCI) Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat in the second ODI at a windy Hambantota on Tuesday. After the loss in the first game on Saturday, they decided to beef up the bowling by bringing in legspinner Seekkuge Prasanna for batsman Dinesh Chandimal. It will be Prasanna's first ODI since last December, and comes soon after a hectic A tour of England on which he picked up loads of wickets.

Sri Lanka 310/9 (50.0 ov) Pakistan 233 (43.5 ov)

There were bursts of boundaries alternating with periods of lull right through the match: SL began in a hurry despite losing early wickets, then counterattacked against the spinners before being becalmed though Mahela Jayawardene and Angelo Mathews had put on a big partnership and lost a bunch of wickets to Mohammad Hafeez only to be bailed out by a brutal Thisara Perera onslaught in the death overs that lifted the target to 311.
