Both teams have already booked their place in Sunday’s title clash at the warm-up tournament to the Twenty20 World Cup in October-November. Hasaranga returned figures of 3-21 with his leg-spin to help bowl out Pakistan for 121 in 19.1 overs after they elected to field first in Dubai.

  1. 50 Overs & Test Mathews,Chandimal,NipunDhananjaya,NishanMadhushka KAminduMendis should be made permanent members whose skills of surviving and experience are key factors in the longer versions of the Game.

Interestingly, almost all these players were from Panadura..
