Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets

Colombo:  Sri Lanka needed a little over 26 overs to chase down a 153-run victory target for a series-levelling seven-wicket victory in the second Test against Pakistan on Monday.

Dimuth Karunaratne (50) helped Sri Lanka get off to a flying start before adding 72 runs for the third wicket with skipper Angelo Mathews, who remained not out after a responsible knock of 43.

Karunaratne fell soon after bringing up his sixth Test fifty, becoming leg-spinner Yasir Shah’s second victim, but Lahiru Thirimanne (20 not out) scored the winning boundary to take them home at P Sara Oval.
The teams now move to Pallekele for the all-important third and final Test from Friday.
