SL vs PAK: The second match of the two-match series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan ended in the favor of the home team.

Thus, they lost their last eight wickets for 85 runs and got all out for 261 runs in 77 overs. Prabhat Jayasuriya picked up 5/117 and Ramesh Mendis had 4/101 in the second innings.

Sri Lanka registered a huge win of 246 runs to level the series at 1-1. After failing to defend the target of 342 runs in the first match, Sri Lanka made sure that they would need enough runs this time around. Hence, they stretched their lead over the 500+ run mark and gave Pakistan an impossible target to take their win out of the equation.

However, Pakistan batted really well in the third session and ended Day 4 at 89/1. But the next day, they just lost their nine wickets in two sessions. Only skipper Babar Azam (81) showed some resilience. Notably, with this win, the equation in the WTC 2023 table has changed totally, and Sri Lanka has made its chances brighter.

But the situation on the table changes after every game. With this 246-run win over Pakistan, Sri Lanka has moved up three spots, and they are at the No. 3 spot with a 53.33 winning percentage. On the other hand, Pakistan, who were third after the win in the first match, slipped to fifth place with a 51.85 win percentage.

India is in fourth place with 52.08 and West Indies are in sixth with a 50-win percentage. This win was certainly a confidence booster for Sri Lanka. They did the same against Australia in the last series as well. Now they have drawn two back-to-back series after losing the first game.

However, Pakistan needs to address this issue of their over-dependency on skipper Babar Azam. The middle-order batters, including Mohammad Rizwan, are failing to deliver consistently, which will hurt their chances for sure.
