Sri Lanka Set Huge Target of 345 Runs for Pakistan

Sri Lanka handed Pakistan an impressive 345-run target today as the two sides locked horns at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium for their cricket World Cup contest in Hyderabad.
Sri Lanka were dealt an early blow after winning the toss and electing to bat first, with opening batter Kusal Perera departing without scoring off a Hassan Ali delivery.
However, Sri Lanka recovered quickly courtesy of a 102-run partnership between opener Pathum Nissanka (51 runs from 61 balls) and Kusal Mendis, who scored an impressive 122 runs from 77 balls, his innings featuring six sixes.
Sadeera Samarawickrama anchored Sri Lanka’s innings by scoring 108 runs from 89 balls, skillfully finding gaps all over the ground to score his ton. 
Ali came back later in the attack with an impressive spell, returning figures of 4-71 from 10 overs while Haris Rauf returned figures of 2-64 from his 10 overs.
