(Web Desk) - Pakistani al-rounder Faheem Ashraf took three-in-three during the second T20 global against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi.

The 23-year-old Ashraf is the sixth bowler overall to register a hat-trick in the shortest format of the game, finishing with 3-16 in his three overs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Sri Lanka: Dilshan Munaweera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Ashan Priyanjan, Mahela Udawatte, Sadeera Samarawickrama (wk), Dasun Shanaka, Sachith Pathirana, Thisara Perera (capt), Seekkuge Prasanna, Isuru Udana, Vikum Sanjaya. However, he was caught at the boundary ropes by Babar Azam. The two sides will play the third and final T20I match of the series later today in a history-making moment for the country.

Hafeez - still an eligible option despite his action being reported for a third time earlier this month - claimed two victims in the 12th over to leave Sri Lanka tottering ominously on 66-6.

In March 2009, the Sri Lankan team were travelling by bus to the Gaddafi Stadium during the second test when gunmen fired at them with rifles, grenades and rockets, wounding six players and a coach and killing eight Pakistanis, including six policemen. They continued their form in the first T20I, winning by seven wickets with 2.4 overs to spare after bowling Sri Lanka out for just 102.

After completing a 5-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka in the one-dayers, Pakistan start the three-match T20 series in Abu Dhabi on Thursday before playing the finale in Lahore.
