BALL BY BALL
And that four seals it, a five wicket win for Pakistan which seals the series 2-0, some good batting performances from both sides, the pitch was in very good condition for batting and both teams made the most of it. A great start from Zaman and Ali gave Pakistan the start they needed and Sohail sealed it for the home side. Now for these two teams a few T20I's to get ready for the T20 World Cup in 2020.
48.2 - N Pradeep to I Ahmed
Errs in his line, sprays it outside leg and Iftikhar just helps it on its way, glances it to fine leg boundary and Pakistan have clinched the ODI series comfortably in the end. Credit to Sri Lanka for a spirited fightback despite the absence of the big guns.
Iftikhar flicks this one away to fine leg after Pradeep gives him a full toss down the leg-side. Pakistan really close to the win now.
48.1 - N Pradeep to I Ahmed
Full toss on leg stump, helped on its way by Iftikhar. It was heading down leg, all he had to do was to use the pace and hammer it over the fence.
Ov 48: 1 0 1 W 1 1 ( 4 Runs, 1 Wkt ) | require 9 runs from 12 Balls
47.6 - S Jayasuriya to I Ahmed
Lands it on the good length, Iftikhar chops it away to point with soft hands and hares for a sharp run
47.5 - S Jayasuriya to W Riaz
Slog swept uppishly by Wahab but it falls safe from deep mid-wicket. He collects it on one bounce.
Sohail's great knock comes to an end, quality batting but he eventually gets bowled trying to cut one away, the task shouldn't be too hard for the new batsman.
Jayasuriya gets one to zip and bite off the surface, it was too close to cut and Haris stood shellshocked after a little lapse of concentration.
47.4 - S Jayasuriya to H Sohail
Haris is flummoxed as he fails to cut that away! It gripped and spun away from middle and rattled the off stump but I think he has done his job with this crucial 56 runs innings
47.3 - S Jayasuriya to I Ahmed
Touch slower on a length, Iftikhar goes back, opens up his body and nurdles it round the corner.
47.2 - S Jayasuriya to I Ahmed
Tossed up, off break lands outside off, he bunts it to the off side and the keeper gathers it.
47.1 - S Jayasuriya to H Sohail
Length ball on leg-stump, Haris shuffles across and works it to long on
