PAK vs SL Highlights: SriLanka script FAIRYTALE story to lift Asia Cup for 6th time

It was a test of temperament for a side that found it difficult to hire a coach. There was a constant change in captaincy. The island nation could not even host the tournament due to the economic crisis and the political turmoil back home. To make matters worse, the team was severely criticised by former captain Arjuna Ranatunga and their MPs after their crushing defeat to Afghanistan in the first match.

However, credit goes to captain Dasun Shanaka and coach Chris Silverwood. Both had a point to prove. If Shanaka was rebuilding a team, Silverwood came to the island nation after being sacked by England following a string of disastrous results. But both turned things around.

Sri Lanka went on a 4-match unbeaten streak to slay two giants India and Pakistan en route final. And the man they discarded for poor fitness was their star with the bat throughout the tournament. Bhanuka Rajapaksa was only given a second chance after his IPL 2022 exploits with Punjab Kings. And the man turned the tide after Pakistan had them by neck in the final at 58/5.

Sent to bat, it was always tricky. Pakistan pacers extracted the early advantage with Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf and  Iftikhar Ahmed sharing the wickets. But then came the fightback.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa, determined to do well, played a match-winning knock of 45-ball 71 hammering 6 fours and 3 sixes. But more importantly, it was his partnerships that changed things for Sri Lanka. First, he added 36-ball 58-run partnership with Wanindu Hasaranga taking the attack to Pakistan. While Hasaranga fell for 21-ball 36, he continued with Chamika Karunaratne. The two added 54 runs off 31 balls, posting up a competitive 170/6 total.
