Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 23 runs in the final of 2022 Asia Cup T20 tournament which was played at Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
Pakistan were bowled out for 147 runs in 20 overs in reply to 171-run target. The win on Sunday was Sri Lanka’s sixth triumph in Asia Cup history.
Earlier, Pakistan pacers started with a bang before Bhanuka Rajapaksa's brilliant 71 not out took Sri Lanka to a challenging 170 for 6. It was a good toss to win for Babar Azam until Rajapaksa's calculated assault at the death saw 50 runs being scored off last 4 overs.
