Pakistan’s Sarfraz Ahmed and Mohammad Amir put on a record eighth-wicket stand of 75 to take their team through to the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy at the expense of Sri Lanka.
Sarfraz Ahmed produced a superb captain’s innings following a top-order collapse to see Pakistan into the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy with a three-wicket win over Sri Lanka at Cardiff on Monday
Sarfraz was dropped twice in the closing stages from the bowling of Lasith Malinga but rode his luck to finish unbeaten on 61 from 79 balls, having found a reliable partner in Amir (28o from 43) as the Pakistanis reached their target of 237 with 31 balls and three wickets to spare.
Not a convincing win though, still makes them through to semi’s with the best 8th wicket partnership among Sarfaraz and M Aamir
But Sarfraz and Amir’s rescue act turned the tide in a thrilling contest, the pair picking singles amid some hazardous running and finding the rope at crucial intervals to see their team home.
Pakistan began the run chase favorites after earlier restricting Sri Lanka to 236 all out.
Opening batsman Niroshan Dickwella made a fine 73 as Sri Lanka’s innings showed early promise, but the Pakistanis came roaring back into the contest thanks to some fine bowling from Hasan Ali (3-42), Junaid Khan (3-40) and Mohammad Amir (2-53).
Sarfraz won the toss and Junaid got the early breakthrough, removing Danushka Gunathilaka for 13 before Kusal Mendis (27) and Dinesh Chandimal (0) fell in quick succession.
Dickwella, who had earlier signaled his attacking intentions with a stunning scoop shot for four, teamed up with captain Angelo Mathews (39) and for a while, it looked as if the Sri Lankans were on track for a sizeable total.
Sri Lanka had looked almost certain to progress when Pakistan’s middle-order fell to 7-162 following a blazing start from Fakhar Zaman (50 from 36), with the middle-order trio of Babar Azam (10), Mohammad Hafeez (1) and Shoaib Malik (11) all failing to make an impact on proceedings.
And when Imad Wasim was out for four and debutant Fahim Ashraf (15) was run-out after being slow to react at the non-striker’s end, Pakistan looked like producing one of their famous implosions.
At 3-161 in the 32nd over, Amir knocked over Mathews to claim his first wicket of the tournament and trigger a dramatic collapse of four wickets for just six runs.
Amir took a second while Junaid took two more as the pace pair followed Hasan’s lead, extracting movement from the pitch and through the air in an impressive display of fast bowling.
Asela Gunaratne (27) and Suranga Lakmal (26) put on 46 for the eighth wicket to help Sri Lanka post what was, in the end, a moderate total, but the island nation will need an outstanding bowling effort if they’re to progress through to the semi-finals.
On Saturday evening, Real Madrid and Juventus go head-to-head in a mouth-watering Champions League final in Cardiff.
It has been billed as attack vs defense, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Co come up with the immovable force that is Gianluigi Buffon in the Juve goal.
Here, Sportsmail columnist Martin Keown casts his eye over the showdown
ULTIMATE TEST FOR OLD WARHORSES
Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, and Andrea Barzagli — not forgetting goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon — have been inspired in the Champions League this season.
They have an average age of nearly 34 but we should not underestimate these great players. At that age, defenders can read the game as well as they ever have. This could well be the last time this defense play together in a match of this magnitude and Buffon will be desperate to claim the one trophy that has eluded him
But up against Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Isco — with Gareth Bale lying in wait on the bench — they will need to have the game of their lives.
Ronaldo does not run at players as much as he used to, more often relying on balls into the box.
That may suit the Juventus defenders but Ronaldo is phenomenal in the air. His spring is frightening. The defenders have to lean on him, block him and stop him committing to the ball.
If Ronaldo is favorite to the ball, it’s in the back of the net.
HIGUAIN v RAMOS COULD GET TASTY
This will be a fascinating tussle as these two will have played against each other many times in training from Higuain’s days at the Bernabeu.
Ramos is a decisive defender who likes to bully his opponents. He will want to do the same with Higuain.
While he does have a tendency to dive into challenges too often, Ramos backs his judgment in making those big, last-ditch tackles. I don’t know if Higuain has enough in his game to get the better of Ramos but he certainly knows where the goal is.
GET SET FOR BATTLE OF THE FULLBACKS
This promises to be an epic battle between the Brazilian full-backs. Dani Alves looks a better player at Juventus. He is embarrassing Barcelona for letting him go!
Alves is more aware of his defensive duties but has lost none of his brilliance going forward.
He was involved in all four of Juve’s goals in the semi-final against Monaco, scoring one and setting up three.
It won’t be easy for him against Marcelo, who is equally confident and is very technically gifted.
These two will pick up where they left off after eight years of clashes in the Clasico
MADRID HAVE THE PERFECT MIDFIELD
Juventus may have decent midfielders in Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira but Real Madrid may well have the perfect midfield. Casemiro sits, Toni Kroos opens up the game with his sublime range of passing while Luka Modric is a great runner who can break forward.
But it is Isco who stitches this team together. Juventus will try to deny him space but this is someone who could play in a telephone box!
His intelligence in possession is breathtaking and he always picks the right pass whatever pressure he is under.
Juventus will find him so difficult to deal with.
