Wanindu Hasaranga spun a web around Pakistan, returining a three-wicket haul to lay the foundation of his side's record a confidence-boosting win ahead of the most-anticipated final on Sunday. The 25 year-old leg also hit the winning runs in Sri Lanka's five-wicket against Pakistan in Dubai. Pakistan enjoyed a healthy powerplay which saw them post 49/1, but the introduction of Hasaranga into the attack put a dent on the scoring rate.

Brief Scores: Pakistan 121 all-out in 19.1 overs (Babar Azam 30; Wanindu Hasaranga 3-21) lost to Sri Lanka 124 for 5 in 17 overs (Pathum Nissanka 55*; Mohammad Hasnain 2-21) by 5 wickets
