*Official* Match #8 — Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka

Massive kudos to Pakistan. I didn't think they could do this. Just left the office and checked the score. Huge win for psychological reasons. Pk bowling needs to find its oomph however.

Credit to Pakistan. Felt Sri Lanka kind of blew this one. Should of had like 400 the intensity dropped from like the 35th over then their bowling had Pakistan on the ropes early. This is a massive confidence killer for them

Whatever it takes!!!
I love being right. 😍

Also Shakeel is really good. That 3,4,5 is probably the most talented in world cricket right now.

Also, good death bowling got the RRR below 7 at the end, was a decent effort there.
Reeling it back from 229/3 after 30 was a stupendous effort. Our middle overs bowling is a concern but in hindsight this was a pretty ok performance with the ball overall. Also, this is a pretty big vote of confidence in favour of Rizzman the #4.

Hard to tell where Pakistan is at right now they’ve had the easiest of the draw so far. Need to see them up against one the big dogs. But they have overcome tough situations so far that could help them later on

Well I've been made to look very stupid here after saying SL would win following Babar's dismissal. Lanka didn't finish their innings at all well but this attack is pure powderpuff. Probably needed 400 to be safe. May win a couple of games late in the tournament as the pitches take increasing turn but it's looking very bleak after this. Has the feel of a tournament-defining disaster.
The key rule to follow here is to never assume Sri Lanka will win because they are vastly over-rated by hipsters on this forum.

And no, it's not because they had two injuries. It's because they are bad and they should feel bad.

Amazing chase by Pakistan. Didn't think they'd even get close after the 2 early wickets.

Srilanks really were on track for 380+ at one stage.
Also their bowlers must be in shock now. Highest Odi world cup total conceded , then the highest run chase in world cup next game..

They’re taking over our (Windies) place nicely
