Asia Cup 2014: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Batting Let Us Down, Says Misbah

Pakistan might have thought they had the game when skipper Misbah-Ul-Haq and Umar Akmal were standing strong at the crease with 242 runs and four wickets down in the 43rd over. Well, that's when Lasith Malinga stepped in to rewrite the script for the day with a five-wicket haul. Pakistan were all out in the 48th over trying to chase down a not-so-difficult target of 297.

Asia Cup 2014: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Malinga Turned the Game For Us, Says Skipper Mathews

Misbah-Ul-Haq and Umar Akmal had put on 121 runs for the fifth wicket partnership when all hopes had dried in the Sri Lankan camp. Skipper Angelo Matthews was thinking his team was already 25-30 runs short while setting a gettable 297 target for Pakistan. But, their experienced seemer, Lasith Malinga, knew exactly what to do in pressure situations - he sent home Misbah and Afridi in a single over to turn the match in Sri Lanka's favour. Feb 26, 2014
