Asia Cup: Fawad Alam's maiden ton boosts Pakistan's position against Sri Lanka in final

Fawad Alam's maiden ODI century enabled Pakistan reach a respectable 260 for five against Sri Lanka after Lasith Malinga made early inroads in the Asia Cup final being played in Mirpur, Bangladesh, on Saturday. Alam struck eight boundaries and three sixes en route to an unbeaten 114, his first ODI century from 29 matches as he first shared 122 runs with Misbah (65 from 98 balls; 3x4, 2x6) to help Pakistan recover from being 18/3 in 4.3 overs.
