Pak vs SL T20 live streaming info, cricket score and highlights
Sri Lanka scored 132 runs in their allotted 20 overs after captain Mahela won the toss against Pakistan and batted first in the 1st T20 game.
The match is being played at the Hambantota on June 1, 2012. See live scorecard.
When last reports came in, Pakistan scored 47 for the loss of four wickets in 10 overs.
Shahid Afridi and Umar Gul are the leading wicket-takers in T20Is, and Saeed Ajmal's variations become even more dangerous when the batsman is under pressure to score quick runs.
After winning the toss Mahela said: "Looks like a good wicket, might slow down later on. Pakistan keep producing a lot of talented players, we have to be on our guard."
Senanayake, the offspinner, and Lokuarachchi, the legspinner, are making their T20I debuts. Lokuarachchi last played for Sri Lanka in 2007. Watch live streaming.
Pak captain Hafeez said: "Captaincy is the biggest honour you can get as a player. I am honoured." 33-year old Shakeel Ansar is debuting as a wicketkeeper-batsman. And that man Mohammad Sami, who you can somehow never write off, is back.
