Pathetic fielding knocks Sri Lanka out of Champions Trophy

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has been fined but luckily not suspended, for slow over-rate following their victory over Sri Lanka that propelled them into semi finals of the Champions Trophy.

Thisara Perera fell shortly after, but Asela Gunaratne and Suranga Lakmal kept Pakistan at bay for a while with a 46-run partnership.

He said, "Yes, we dropped three catches, but there has been a genuine effort from the boys and from the support staff".

When quizzed about the fragility of the team's batting line-up, Arthur said that?middle order has been exposed a bit? before suggesting that skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and experienced batsman Shoaib Malik might get promoted in the batting order.

It brought Dinesh Chandimal to the crease but his stay was reduced to just two balls as the batsman dragged one from Fahim Ashraf onto his stumps, going for a drive.
