PAK win by 5 wickets

Iftikhar Ahmed hits a six and a four to start off the 49th over. And that's it! Pakistan win! For all of Sri Lanka's efforts towards the end, there's no way into this match for them. The Pakistan openers took the game away from them first up, and then Haris Sohail did enough to see them home. This is only the second time they have chased a target over 275 in the last five years

Sohail is OUT

Such an anti climax. Haris Sohail has surely done enough to take the home team home but he will not be there when the match ends. He goes for 56.

13 to get in 3 overs

Sohail (55*) gets a four off Pradeep as well. He has played a great hand today. Pakistan can smell victory now. Iftikhar has done well to give Sohail company as well. He has ably taken on the role Sarfaraz was playing before him. Sohail, on the other hand, is smashing anything that is in his zone. Three fours and one six from him. A strike rate that has consistently been in triple figures.

Huge Over!

Pakistan have targetted Lahiru Kumara in this 46th over. 18 runs come off it! That's the most expensive over of the match. Haris Sohail the man responsible for it. Pakistan need just 19 more runs in the last 4 overs. Has Sohail done enough?

Last 5 overs

A lot riding on Haris Sohail at this stage. The required run rate is climbing again, with there having been frequent wickets for the last 10 overs or so. Iftikhar Ahmed is the new man in and looks happy to follow Haris Sohail's lead. Sri Lanka know they have pulled this game back just a bit. Sohail's wicket could turn this match on its head. Pakistan now need 44 off 33 balls.

Sarfaraz is OUT

Another wicket. Is there a twist in the tail? Just when Pakistan were looking to have sealed the deal, they lose their skipper. Sarfaraz plays one ball down to his stumps. Lahiru Kumara the wicket taker. That's his first wicket of the day and he is pleased as puch about it. Iftikhar Ahmed, who has played 3 ODIs so far, the new man in for Pakistan.

Last 10 overs

Pakistan get into the last 10 overs without further damage. Sarfaraz and Haris Sohail have taken Pakistan back to a position of strength after Pradeep's double blow got Sri Lanka back into the match. Pakistan favourites to close this out now. Will be interesting to see if Pradeep can have another impact in his final spell - he shall probably be used at the very death - but both batsmen have got themselves set in now. Pakistan need 54 runs off the last 9 overs. Required run rate down to 6 again.

Sohail gives the charge

Sohail and Sarfaraz have now settled into two contrasting modes of batsmanship. Sohail is batting at a strike rate above 100. Sarfaraz's strike rate is below 50 at the moment and he is yet to hit a boundary. 29 runs have come off the last 5 overs - which is good enough for Pakistan. Haris Sohail hits another boundary to end the 38th over. Pakistan now need 73 runs in 72 balls.

200 up for Pakistan

Sarfaraz and Haris Sohail are taking their time to settle. These two would like to see this chase off to the end. Nuwan Pradeep, who has been the most impactful bowler in this innings, has 3 more overs left. Shanaka, who has as many as 7 overs left today, is brought back on. We're into the final passage of this match. Could the Sri Lankans hurt this Pakistan run chase any further? The home team now need 93 off 89 balls.

Pradeep strikes again

Pradeep strikes twice in two overs! Pakistan lose Fakhar Zaman. He goes for a 91-ball 76. Managed to just hoick it to the third man fielder. Pakistan suddenly have two new batsmen in the middle - Sarfaraz and Haris Sohail. Could this be the chink in the wall Sri Lanka could capitalize on? The required run rate creeps above 6, but there are still 17 overs left.

Dropped

Fakhar Zaman gets a life. He offers a catch to the slip cordon. It was a difficult chance, but what a great chance that was. Was a golden opportunity to get two new batsmen in the middle. Fakhar is in his 70s at the moment. Sarfaraz has joined him. Pakistan still on track with this chase. They need 109 off the next 19 overs.

WICKET!

A huge appeal from Nuwan Pradeep as soon as the ball hit Babar Azam's pads but the umpire turned it down. Sri Lankans opt for DRS and once again it works in their favour. Azam out for 31 from 26 balls. Will Sri Lanka make a comeback now? Meanwhile, Sarfraz Ahmed promotes himself up the order, comes to bat at No.4. PAK - 181/2 in 29.1 overs

DRS to the rescue

Wanidu Hasaranga gets his man. Abid Ali fails to pick the wrong one and gets hit on the back pad. The umpire did not give it out but DRS shows that the ball would have gone on to hit the stumps. Big wicket for Hasaranga. Ali departs for 73 from 67 deliveries. PAK - 123/1 in 19.3 overs

Slow start for Pakistan
