Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka by 33 runs in the Super 8 stage of the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 at Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Pakistan were 33-3 in the fifth over after Imran Nazir was caught at cover and Dilhara Fernando bowled both Salman Butt and Mohammad Hafeez. However Shoaib Malik (57) and Younis Khan (51) shared a partnership of 101 runs. Lasith Malinga took three wickets but Pakistan reached 189-6 after twenty overs.

Mahela Jayawardene (28) and Chamara Silva (38) shared a 53 run partnership while Tillakaratne Dilshan scored 38, but three quick wickets fell for four runs limiting Sri Lanka's chances.
