Both teams were playing the second Twenty20 match at Dubai International Stadium resulting in a memorable match for cricket fans.
Playing first, Sri Lanka put up a massive total of 211 in only 20 overs. Pakistani bowlers, especially spinners seemed helpless stopping batting machines of Asian Tigers.
In return, though the tail enders put up a nice and worth-seeing innings in the match, Pakistan managed to score only 187 runs losing all of its wickets.
Shahid Afridi was given man of the series award for his allround performance during the two matches series.
