Pakistan lacked clarity in their batting approach as they fared woefully post the PowerPlay. They were helped by 9 extras which made the score after six overs (49/1) look better than it actually was. The chief weakness in the game has been their dot ball percentage against spin and the lack of feet movement. As wickets kept falling at regular intervals in the second half, they never got the momentum they desired to post a total of some formidability. Sri Lanka would’ve acquired a lot of confidence after the five-wicket win, but they will also be cognizant of the fact that they lost miserably the only time they batted first in this tournament.
