Pakistan and Sri Lanka have met each other only 13 times during the over-a-decade-long history of international T-20 cricket.
In T-20 cricket, there have been 38 instances when a team scored 200 runs or more in a single innings. Pakistan features in the list only once: 205 for five against Bangladesh in Karachi in 2008. Sri Lanka has conceded more than 200 only once – against India in 2009 in Mohali. Pakistan too has conceded a 200-plus score only once. It was against Sri Lanka in 2013. In short, Pakistan rarely registers big totals and Sri Lanka rarely concedes big scores.
Here is the list of the top 10 highest totals Pakistan has posted against Sri Lanka:
This is the group stage match of the 2009 T-20 World Cup. Sri Lanka batted first and scored 150 for seven. An opening wicket stand of 81 in nine overs between Jayasuriya and Tillakaratne Dilshan was the backbone of the innings. Pakistan required a good start to chase down the total. Instead, they found themselves at 35 for 3 in the sixth over. Younis Khan and Misbah tried to do their best. However, they did not find much support from other batters. Pakistan could manage only 131 for nine.
