Soon after Dimuth Karunaratne chose to bat first in Galle, Shaheen Afridi struck having the skipper dragging on in just the third over. The hosts then replied in kind to Pakistan's aggressive strategy, with the bowlers erring in line and length and allowing the pair of Kusal Mendis and Oshada Fernando to collect boundaries at will. Their 49-run partnership offset the early disadvantage caused by Shaheen Afridi and kept Sri Lanka scoring at a fair clip.

Brief Scores: 166/8 (Dinesh Chandimal 68*, Oshada Fernando 35; Shaheen Afridi 3-38; Yasir Shah 2-50) vs Pakistan
