Man of the Match : S Afridi R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (26 Feb,2011)

COW Analysis :

After a sluggish start Pakistan’s innings picked up well before Kamran Akmal made sure Hafeez was run out. By then they were 78/2 in 14 with COW of 52%, a 7% rise. After Kamran lost his wicket stupidly, Misbah and Younis set the platform for a 300+ score with their fifties but tight bowling at death restricted them to 277/7 with COW of 56%. After a steady start Sri Lanka looked in spot at 72/0 but 4 quick wickets saw them fall to 98/4 after 22 with COW of just 33%. Sangakkara, Dilshan and Silva all got going but no one stayed till the end as Sri Lanka ended at 266/9, short by 11 runs.

arrow 13 Overs: PAK 76/1 PAK 50% After the wicket of Shahzad, Kamran Akmal
      and Hafeez began smashing the bowling at a run a ball. Pakistan’s chances increased by 5% during this period.
arrow 27 Overs: PAK 132/3 PAK 51% Kamran Akmal was involved in 2 brainless
      wickets (running out Hafeez and getting stumped himself) but the sane heads of Younis and Misbah prevented more mistakes. Pakistan’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 37 Overs: PAK 185/3 PAK 53% The only Pakistani batsmen who
      subscribe to the nudge and nurdle style of batting began taking Pakistan towards a formidable total gradually. Pakistan’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 50 Overs: PAK 277/7 PAK 56% It was surprisingly Misbah who helped
      Pakistan get to a formidable total, even though Murali mesmerized the remaining batsmen. Pakistan’s chances increased by 3% during this period.
  2nd Innings (Sri Lanka: Target 278) - 50 Overs Maximum  
arrow 13 Overs: SL 68/0 PAK 55% Dilshan and Tharanga provided a solid
      opening partnership Gul was off-colour and that helped. Sri Lanka’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 27 Overs: SL 112/4 PAK 68% Sri Lanka lost 4 wickets and Chamara
      Silva took exceptionally long time to get his eye in. Sri Lanka’s chances decreased by 13% during this period.
arrow 38 Overs: SL 169/5 PAK 74% Shahid Afridi became the only minor to
      take 300 wickets but the major contest was between Kamran Akmal and Chamara Silva over who could play worse. Sri Lanka’s chances decreased by 6% during this period.
arrow 50 Overs: SL 266/9 PAK 100% Chamara Silva defined irony when he top
      scored for Lanka, and it turns that he did enough for a Pakistan victory. Pakistan won by 11 runs.
