Pakistan makes its case with T20 vs Lanka in Lahore

Sunday´s game comes after Lahore also hosted this year´s Pakistan Super League final and the Independence Cup series between Pakistan and World XI last month.

Ashraf dismissed Isuru Udana, Mahela Udawatte and Dasun Shanaka off successive deliveries in only his third Twenty20 global. Ashraf ended with career-best figures of 3/16 from his three overs. After first three balls, Faheem picked his first wicket in the form of Udana, after a slower bouncer pulled by the Lankan was picked by Hasan Ali at short fine-leg.

Ashraf achieved the rare feat against Sri Lanka, when he come on to bowl in the 19th over of the innings.

Udawatte was the second wicket to fall when Faheem bowled a wide ball outside off and the Sri Lankan batsman tried to play it big.
