Sri Lanka Thrashed

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates () -- Saeed Anwar hit a second successive century as Pakistan crushed world champions Sri Lanka by eight wickets to enter the Champions Trophy final here Tuesday.


The pugnacious opener, who made an unbeaten 104 against New Zealand on Sunday, stroked a brilliant 112 not out -- his 11th one-day hundred -- as Pakistan easily overtook Sri Lanka's modest 189 with 20 balls to spare.


Fellow opener Aamer Sohail contributed 65 in a first-wicket stand of 173.
