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.

Before setting himself on fire in what he called an "extreme act of protest", he said he would "no longer be complicit in genocide". Polls show that the vast majority (63%) of Americans want an immediate end to the carnage being perpetrated by Israel in Gaza.  …
