Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Final Canada Cup Four Nation Twenty20

PAK v SL, T20 Final Match: Sri Lanka wins Canadian Twenty20 series

Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan by five wickets to win the Al Barakah Twenty20 International series on Monday.
Led by unorthodox spinner Ajantha Mendis' three wickets, Sri Lanka rebounded from a three-wicket loss to Pakistan on Saturday to win the final with six balls to spare before an enthusiastic crowd of nearly 10,000 at Maple Leaf Ground. Sri Lanka scored 133-5 off 19 overs in reply to previously unbeaten Pakistan's 132-7.
Pakistan opener Salman Butt hit a steady 44 but nobody could stay with him, and momentum was hard to gather as Mendis took 3-23 to give him 11 wickets in the series. He was named MVP of the tournament. Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene praised Mendis and the rest of his bowlers.
"It's hats off to them because they created pressure for the batsman," he said. Sanath Jayasuriya and Mahela Udawatte set about setting up Sri Lanka's first Twenty20 win over Pakistan, putting together an opening stand of 66 in seven overs, easily handling Shoaib Akhtar and Umar Gul. Jayasuriya hit two sixes in his 34-ball 40, and Udawatte one in his 19-ball 25. Spinners Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik stalled Sri Lanka's progress but Chamara Kapugedera's patient 17 ensured the target was reached.
