Pakistan inflict massive defeat on Sri Lanka
SHARJAH—It was a high-calibre, clinical performance throughout by Pakistan. While baatting and bowling, the clear intent was to try inflicting a crushing defeat on Sri Lanka, their nemesis in this tournament. That objective was achieved, and with ample breath to spare, as the Lankans capitulated, their innings brought to a shockingly premature close, in only 16.5 overs at 78 for 9, with Muttiah Muralitharan languishing in hospital with a shoulder injury that may keep him away from cricket for up to 3 months.
