Dasun Shanaka the skipper of Sri Lanka says that they had the game under control but losing of wickets cost them in the later part. He adds that they had a good discussion about how they lost quick wickets against India and they learned from their mistakes. He ends by saying that Kusal Mendis is a brilliant batter and he is really happy to be in the finals again.
Babar Azam the skipper of Pakistan says that they went with Shaheen Afridi as they decided to bowl with their best bowlers. Adds that in the end they went with Zaman Khan but unfortunately the game didn't go their way. He says that they were not good with their batting and fielding and that is the reason they lost the game. Ends by saying that they didn't do well in the middle overs and that's thy they lost the game.
Charith Asalanka the man of the moment is in for a quick chat. He says that for the final ball, he was just finding the gap and he told Matheesha Pathirana to run hard. He adds that Sadeera Samarawickrama and Kusal Mendis batted really well and he was happy to contribute. Ends by saying that he can rank this innings at the second place in his books.
Presentations coming up...
Earlier in the game, Pakistan were off to a shaky start but the Rizwan-Iftikhar stitched up a partnership of 108 runs and made their side reach a commendable total. For Sri Lanka, they started off well and had Pakistan under pressure but Mohammad Rizwan's knock cost them and they ended up with 252 runs to chase in 42 overs rain-curtailed game.
Pakistan, really missed the likes of Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Shaheen Afridi along with Zaman Khan and Wasim were quite expensive at the start. The spinners too could not apply the breaks in the middle overs and hence, Pakistan kept chasing the game. Iftikhar Ahmed though was brilliant with the ball. His spell is what gave his side some sort of belief. Shaheen Afridi then came back strongly towards the end. He picked up two wickets in the second last over. Zaman, the debutant, bowled his heart out, he had 7 to defend but failed to do so. What a game of cricket in the end but have to say Sri Lanka deserved to win.
Sadeera Samarawickrama fell but Kusal Mendis continued. He was on course for a well-deserved ton before he fell 9 short. Once he fell, the chase still seemed under control. However, wickets right towards the end, some careless batting saw the equaltion come down to 8 needed in the last over with Charith Asalanka the only recognized batter out there. He though, batted brilliantly and scored won the game on the very last ball.
Charith Asalanka, the man with nerves of steel! What an oustanding knock that was! Take a bow, with so much on stake in this one, it came down to 6 needed from the last two balls and it was Charith Asalanka who has taken his side over the line and into the finals. The defending champions will have a chance to retain the Asia Cup against India. However, this game should have ever come this close. It was Sri lanka all the way in the second innings. The openers got them off to a flier but then came the stand which took the game away from Pakistan. Both Kusal Mendis and Sadeera Samarawickrama batted brilliantly to add over 100 and turned the tide completely into their favor.

OUT! TAKEN! That is a wonderful catch and the big wicket of Kusal Mendis is taken. Is it too late? Has his knock won his side the game? We will know but for now, Pakistan will believe. 42 needed in 41. On middle, Kusal Mendis looks to flick but this one holds in the surface. He closes the face of the bat early, it goes off the leading edge. Mohammad Haris at covers, runs forward, dives and takes it inches above the ground. They go upstairs to check but replays show that it is clean. Mendis deserved a ton but he has batted brilliantly.
