Inexperienced Sri Lanka seal T20 series win over top-ranked Pakistan - in pictures

Hosts' batting collapses again after Hasaranga picks up three wickets in one over in Lahore

Sri Lanka’s inexperienced team earned another emphatic 35-run victory over top-ranked Pakistan in the second Twenty20 on Monday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa, playing in only his second Twenty20, smashed 77 off 48 balls in Sri Lanka’s strong total of 182-6 after captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and opted to bat.

Leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga (3-38) then took three wickets in four balls and Isuru Udana provided the perfect finish by grabbing 4-25 as Pakistan was bowled out for 147 in 19 overs.

Imad Wasim top scored with 47 off 29 balls but his partnership of 75 with Asif Ali (29) was not enough to stop Sri Lanka from registering another convincing win.
