Sri Lanka set 148-run target for Pakistan in final T20

Sri Lanka have set a 148-run target for Pakistan to prevent a series whitewash in the third and final Twenty20 international against Pakistan in Lahore on Wednesday.

The visitors, who had won the toss and decided to bat, finished with a score of 147-7 in their allotted 20 overs.

Sri Lanka, who lead the three-match series 2-0, made five changes to their team. Pakistan brought in Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed and Usman Shinwari in place of Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal and Mohammad Hasnain.

 

 

On Monday, Sri Lanka’s second-string side humbled Pakistan by 35 runs in the second T20I to seal the series and leave the hosts scrambling to avoid a whitewash at home.

The venue for today's game, Gaddafi Stadium, has been decked out in pink after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) joined hands with Pink Ribbon to create awareness about breast cancer.

"The stumps for the last #PAKvSL T20I are being branded in pink. All sponsors of the series have also changed their branding colours in the ground to pink," the PCB said in a tweet.
