In fact the ball seems to have fallen in that depression between the stands and the ground and so some difficulty in retrieving the ball. Pakistan are 302/3 in 43.4 overs, need 43 to win in 38.

Oct 10, 2023 9:45 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Pakistan need 74 to win off the last 10 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Rizwan's cramps have brought a few sniggers from inside the Pakistan dressing room, as it always does. But if he pulls this off his teammates should carry him off the field on their shoulders. Boundaries haven't been easy to come by in the last three overs and so Rizwan is running as hard as he can to get the most runs between the wickets. It has taken Pakistan's score to 271/3, Rizwan on 97 off 93, Shakeel on 16 off 18.

Oct 10, 2023 9:39 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: He comes down the track to Dhananjaya for the third ball of the 37th and smashes it back over the bowler's head. The ball is only halfway through to the boundary when his backfoot is thrown forward and he falls on the ground. Rizwan tries to get up and walk but that right foot is dead straight. He goes down again and some Sri Lankan players come to his aid before the physios come out. Rizwan has moved to 89 off 81, Pakistan are 246/3 in 36.3 overs, Pakistan need 99 in 81 balls.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Rizwan is down!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: He seemed to have hurt his back as he tried to reach a wide and high delivery fifth ball of that over. Rizwan was down holding his back for a while before getting up and facing the next ball. Then he takes a single off the next ball and lies down flat on his back. Him having to go off at this point would be nightmarish for Pakistan, not to mention how much of a blow it will be if this goes on to affect his participation in any of the rest of the games.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Something special was needed to end this special innings and that is exactly what has happened here. Short outside off, Shafique hits it towards backward point. Dushan Hemantha the substitute fielder just darts to his right and takes the catch while still in flight. The crowd gives Shafique a standing ovation as he walks off disappointed.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: FOUR! WHAT A HIT THAT IS!

Shafique comes down the track to the last ball of that ball and creams that through extra cover. That reached the boundary in less than a second.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: SIX! Nothing lucky about this one

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: The first six may have been largely thanks to a misfield from Sri Lanka but this one is emphatic. Dhananjaya de Silva bowling the 21st and Shafique steps out to the second ball and tonks it over midwicket.

Oct 10, 2023 8:03 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Fifty for Shafique!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: SIX! Ludicrous misfield!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: First six of the innings and it has come thanks to some terrible communication between the two fielders at the boundary. That should have been the end of Abdullah Shafique's day. Pathirana digs in the fourth ball of the 14th over short, Shafique tries to hook but it takes a top edge. Fine leg and square leg fielders converge at the boundary and both players pull out, allowing the ball to land squarely on the boundary pad. Pakistan 67/2 in 13.4 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Pakistan 48/2 in 10 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Sri Lanka lost a review with the last ball of the 10th over. Bouncer from Madushanka to Abdullah, it flew off the batter's helmet to the fielder at cover. Sri Lanka appeal, the umpire shakes his head and Shanaka reviews. There was no bat on it as it turns out and so Sri Lanka have just one more review left.

Oct 10, 2023 7:08 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Pakistan 37/2 in 8 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Rizwan is the new man in and he is yet to get off the mark after facing four deliveries. Shafique has scored 14 in 17.

Oct 10, 2023 6:43 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: GONE! Imam falls!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Early breakthrough for Sri Lanka! Quite a brilliant catch at fine leg and Dilshan Madushanka gets an early wicket for Sri Lanka. Imam seems surprised by a short one that comes too quickly at him. He goes for a pull shot, doesn't quite the connection he wanted, Kusal Perera runs in and judges his dive forward to perfection.

Imam c Perera b Madushanka 12 (12), Pakistan 16/1 in 3.3 overs

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Five dot balls and two wickets in the last over means that Sri Lanka will not get to 350. They finish six short of it – on 344/9 – and although Pakistan did well to limit SL to that total, it will require a herculean chase. Sri Lanka will be the happier of the two teams but Pakistan won't be too dejected themselves. Yes, they gave away almost 350 but it could have been a lot worse had it not been for those last few wickets in quick succession.

Oct 10, 2023 5:54 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: SMACKED FOR FOUR!

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Dunith Wellalage with a crucial boundary that gets Sri Lanka to 343. Just 7 needed now off the last over to breach that 350-run mark. Meanwhile, due to a bad over rate, Pakistan have been dealt a penalty which means only 4 of their fielders will be allowed outside the circle. Haris Rauf to bowl the final over.

Oct 10, 2023 5:49 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Fourth wicket for Hasan Ali

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: OUT! Big wicket for Pakistan, Hasan Ali picks his 4th as SL lose Samarawickrama for 108.

Oct 10, 2023 5:45 PM IST

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: Shaheen's first wicket

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: OUT! A late wicket as Dasun Shanaka falls but Pakistan wouldn't mind. Sri Lanka 324/6 in 46.3 overs. The Sri Lanka captain never got his timing right, and in a bid to up the ante, perishes as Babar Azam takes a catch to give Shaheen Afridi his first wicket of the game. Meanwhile, Samarawickrama, whose standout feature today has been picking the right gaps, has done it again.
