Sri Lanka T20I series begins October 5

Mohammad Amir has risen six spots in the list

He achieved the feat in the first T20I of the three-match series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Fast bowlers Isuru Udana (3-11) and Nuwan Pradeep (3-21) then dismantled Pakistan for 101 in 17.4 overs to give Sri Lanka a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Inexperienced Sri Lanka stunned Pakistan by 64 runs in the first Twenty20 global in Lahore on Saturday, taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. However, it didn't turn out to be that case as Umar Akmal was dismissed for a golden duck, while Ahmed Shehzad contributed just four runs.

"Our stay in Pakistan is going very well and we are being hosted very nicely", said Gunathilaka, who has been one of the finds of the tour for Sri Lanka.

How does the WTO ruling on Airbus mean for manufacturing?
The WTO says the US retaliation can take the form of a suspension of tariff concessions and other elements of trade agreements. And at least one tariff expert believes the decision may have ultimately saved Mobile's Airbus plant from potential closure.

Ahmed Shehzad (4) was sent back to the pavilion in the fifth over, reducing Pakistan to 22/3. The selection of Faheem Ashraf is also contentious in these conditions. Udana and Pradeep finished with three wickets each, while Wanindu Hasaranga claimed 2/20 in four over. Hasnain picked up the wickets of Bhanuka Rajapaksa (32), Dasun Shanaka (17) and Shehan Jayasuriya (2) to shatter the world record.

It was Shadab who accounted for the next wicket to fall too, running out Gunathilaka's opening partner Avishka Fernando with a direct hit from mid-off for a sedate 33-ball 34, and thereafter it was the Mohammad Hasnain show. Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed and Iftikhar Ahmed then retrieved the innings for the side.

The left-handed batsman, who had reportedly shown some reservations at touring Pakistan, made the disclosure while visiting the newly installed gallery in the far end corridor of the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. Sarfaraz Ahmed chose to include both Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad in the playing XI which is a questionable move.

The two batsmen were expected to perform well after being included in the side for more than a year. Babar nicked off before Umar Akmal, playing his first T20I in nearly three years, fell LBW.
