Second T20I: Pakistan wins toss, opts to field against Sri Lanka

Meher Mohammad Khalil, a Pakistani bus driver who held his nerve under gunfire to guide the Sri Lankan team to safety during an attack in 2009, is thrilled that worldwide cricket is finally returning to Lahore.

Pakistan's another top bowling performance saw them restrict Sri Lanka to 124 for 9 in the second T20I.

Several thousand security officials will be on duty Sunday with armed military personnel around the stadium and on the route of team buses to the stadium. Sri Lanka too, unfortunately, couldn't get out of the rut and missed the experienced players.

Strict security arrangements were made during the visit of the Lankan security delegation.

And now Sri Lanka will round off a T20 series which Pakistan already leads 2-0 after winning in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Now if we analyze the last 21 matches that Pakistan has played, the team has won 17 and lost only 4.

Billionaire wealth accelerates faster than global economy
At the current rate of development, Asia is also tipped to overtake the United States in total billionaire wealth within four years.

Though Sri Lanka suffered its 12th consecutive ODI defeat against Pakistan in last game of five-match series in Sharjah on October 23 but its T20 record in 2017 hasn't been that bad.

Asanka Gurusinha and Hashan Tillakaratne two of Sri Lanka's survivors in the 2009 attack that killed eight people will be coming to Lahore again as team manager and batting coach respectively. But a delivery prior to the wicket became the talking point of the match.

Series: After losing 0-2 to Sri Lanka in the Tests, Pakistan bounced back commendably to complete a 5-0 clean sweep in the One-Day Internationals.

"It's a historic moment", PCB chairman Najam Sethi told AFP on Friday.

Before this Pakistan has beaten England to gain the Number two spot.
