South Africa pack Sri Lanka for 120 in World T20

South African bowlers finally came good to bundle out defending champions Sri Lanka for 120 in 19.3 overs in the last World Twenty20 group game in New Delhi on Monday. The Proteas bowlers justified their captain's decision to field first as regular wicket-taking saw a clueless Sri Lanka fall like a pack of cards. Sri Lankan stand-in skipper Dinesh Chandimal (21) and Tillakaratne Dilshan (36) did give the team a brisk start but soon lost the momentum after losing a couple of wickets.

Dilshan powers Sri Lanka to win over Afghanistan

Opener Tillakaratne Dilshan said he was desperate to score some big runs after steering holders Sri Lanka to a six-wicket win over a spirited Afghanistan in the World Twenty20 on Thursday. The big-hitting Dilshan kept his nerves under pressure and carried his bat through for an unbeaten 83 off just 56 balls, his 13th half-century in the shortest format of the game.

Pakistan must be applauded for their ODI series win over Sri Lanka

This article first appeared on DAWN. Pakistan were well and truly hammered in the 5th ODI against Sri Lanka but it must not overshadow what was a remarkable series win in the Island after 9 years. This was also Pakistan's first ODI series win against a top eight side since December 2013. Yes, Pakistan had gone on for a year and a half without winning a bilateral ODI series against a what can be termed a ‘top tier’ team. There is no reason why the players and fans should not r...
