Pakistan respond to Asia Cup criticism with six wicket win over Sri Lanka

After the ugly fallout to their defeat to Bangladesh two nights earlier, Pakistan salvaged some cheer in the final match of the Asia Cup pool stage as they beat Sri Lanka by six wickets.

DHAKA // After the ugly fallout to their defeat to Bangladesh two nights earlier, Pakistan salvaged some cheer in the final match of the Asia Cup pool stage as they beat Sri Lanka by six wickets.

Former players and active administrators alike had heaped criticism on Shahid Afridi and his side after they fell short of qualifying for the final with one match still to play.

However, they will travel to the World Twenty20 in India on the back of a much-needed win against a Sri Lanka side who have endured an even more miserable time in Dhaka.

With India and Bangladesh already confirmed as the finalists, the game had no competitive significance to the Asia Cup.

Asia Cup: UAE bowler Mohammed Naveed backed to land T20 league contract: 'He has got everything'

It had wider relevance, with the World T20 to follow, for both sides, though. Tillakaratne Dilshan finally found form as he made an undefeated 75 as Sri Lanka posted 150 for four from their 20 overs.

Mohammed Irfan’s fine death bowling had clipped their progress, and Umar Akmal marshaled Pakistan’s chase, making 48 before falling to a brilliant catch on the boundary by Thisara Perera with just one run required.

“We’ve the backed players, we didn’t want to change too many things, but the selectors have done well to give everyone a fair opportunity,” Afridi, Pakistan’s troubled captain, said.

“We had to change a few things, we worked hard and it helped.”

Pakistan rarely looked troubled in the chase against a Sri Lanka side who were without both their captain, Lasith Malinga, and his deputy, Angelo Mathews, because of injury.

“Injuries have been our main issue,” Dinesh Chandimal, the stand-in captain, said.

“We haven’t been able to get our best combinations out every game. I hope they can recover soon and we can come back strongly for the World Cup.”

Key findings
  • Over a period of seven years, a team of scientists analysed dietary data from 50,000 North American adults.
  • Eating one or two meals a day was associated with a relative decrease in BMI, compared with three meals. Snacks count as a meal. Likewise, participants who ate more than three meals a day experienced an increase in BMI: the more meals a day, the greater the increase. 
  • People who ate breakfast experienced a relative decrease in their BMI compared with “breakfast-skippers”. 
  • Those who turned the eating day on its head to make breakfast the biggest meal of the day, did even better. 
  • But scrapping dinner altogether gave the best results. The study found that the BMI of subjects who had a long overnight fast (of 18 hours or more) decreased when compared even with those who had a medium overnight fast, of between 12 and 17 hours.

Financial considerations before buying a property

Buyers should try to pay as much in cash as possible for a property, limiting the mortgage value to as little as they can afford. This means they not only pay less in interest but their monthly costs are also reduced. Ideally, the monthly mortgage payment should not exceed 20 per cent of the purchaser’s total household income, says Carol Glynn, founder of Conscious Finance Coaching.

“If it’s a rental property, plan for the property to have periods when it does not have a tenant. Ensure you have enough cash set aside to pay the mortgage and other costs during these periods, ideally at least six months,” she says. 

Also, shop around for the best mortgage interest rate. Understand the terms and conditions, especially what happens after any introductory periods, Ms Glynn adds.

Using a good mortgage broker is worth the investment to obtain the best rate available for a buyer’s needs and circumstances. A good mortgage broker will help the buyer understand the terms and conditions of the mortgage and make the purchasing process efficient and easier.
