Pak vs Sl 2019: Watch Iftikhar Ahmed Hilarious run out in First T20I of series at Gaddafi Stadium


Finally, almost after a decade, a Series is played in Pakistan after the attack on Sri Lankan players back in 2009 outside the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore and the series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka made Pakistan fans very happy has their team successfully won the ODI series.

But the first match of the T20I series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, which is played at Gaddafi Stadium, (the same place where the attack has happened back 10 years ago) this match will be a nightmare for Pakistani players as Sri Lanka won the match by a huge margin of 64 runs.

Pakistan has won the toss and elected to bowl first, with a marvellous fifty from opener Dhanushka Gunathilka, Sri Lanka was able to put a decent total of 165/5 on the scoreboard.

After the innings break, Pakistan Batsman started reaching Pavillion one after another for small scores. Babar Azam(13 of 10 balls), Umar Akmal(Golden duck) and Shahzad Khan(4 of 9 balls).

When wickets are collapsing like this then came captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Iftikhar Ahmed and started building a partnership by running well in between the wickets until a funny run-out took place on the 3rd delivery of 12th over when Isuru Udana was bowling.

Sarfaraz took off in search of a quick single after jamming out a yorker, but Iftikhar at the other end isn’t interested at all. Both batsmen jostled to the crease at the striker’s end. Meanwhile, Udana removed the bails at the bowling end and replays had to be seen who was out and Sarfaraz Ahmed made the ground first and Iftikhar had to go back to the pavilion for 25 runs of 24 balls.

However, Sarfaraz made no delay in giving up his wicket and went to the very next alternate over to the Pavillion in Wanindu Hasaranga bowling. In the end, Sri Lanka won the match by 64 runs and took lead in the 3 match T20I series.
