Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium witnessed history as the Green Shirts take on Sri Lanka for the final T20I on Sunday.
Pakistan won the series 3-0, after beating Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the opening game, winning a last-ball thriller in the second T20I, and comfortably winning the final match in Lahore.
However, the last match was much more than just a game of cricket.
The occasion marked the homecoming of top-level international cricket as Sri Lanka become the first major cricket team to visit Pakistan since they were targeted in a deadly ambush in 2009 — with attack survivors among those returning to the scene.
Here are some highlights of the match:
