This was the second of the two-match T20 series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, with the former leading 1-0. Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat and owing to the 40s from Shehan Jayasuriya and Chamara Kapugedera, the Lankans posted 172 on the board.

Chasing 173, Pakistan got a very poor start with the youngster, Dilhara Fernando sending both the openers back, and due some poor judgement in running and rash shots, Pakistan was reeling at 40 for 5. However, quick  40s from Shahid Afridi and Anwar Ali and an important 24 from Imad Wasim saw Pakistan going over the line with 4 balls to spare and just 1 wicket in hand.
