i didn't see it, but hope pakistan wins. shoaib malik also struck a fine fifty and add to that 2 sixes by Misbah in the last over. the target set is tight, hoping Asif does the trick.
Congrats!! Great allround performance by Pak against SL. Shoaib/Younis 101 partnership, Afridi's 3 wickets and magnificent catches by Younis did it. Hope to see more of this by Pakistanis.
Live matches .. i am watching the last overs of this match.

That was a great comeback after the last match against India. After another top-order failure, Younis and Shoaib Malik really turned the tables around, giving Jayasuriya a taste of his own medicine.

Just a few interesting facts:

1. The match against India is considered as a tie, and not as an Indian victory in the record books. http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/content/records/283307.html

2. Pakistan now has the highest Win Percentage in Twenty20 Internationals . Pakistan's Win Percentage is 78.57%. Next is Sri Lanka with 66 %.

3. Pakistan has now had 5 consecutive Twenty20 International matches without defeat (remember the match against India is considered as a tie), which is another record.

4. Afridi now has 11 wickets in Twenty20 Internationals, which is a world record.

5. Younis and Shoaib's partnership is the highest for the 4th wicket.

6. Jayasuriya's spell of 0/64 is the most expensive spell in a Twenty20 International, alongside Jimmy Anderson. However Jayasuriya's figures are worse since Anderson did pick up 1 wicket.

I know that since all nations have played only a handful of matches, it is very likely that these records can be broken even by tomorrow. However, it is nice to know that we hold them for now.
This was a very good performance by Pakistani team. I hope they can continue with it in future matches.
