Commentary

Pakistan finally bring their A-game in this series, and it gives them a handsome 146-run victory. Umar Akmal was the undoubted star, making a spectacular century after walking in with the team struggling at 130 for 4, that too in just his third game. Younis will also be really pleased with his half-century.

Sri Lanka threw in the towel after Kapugedera fell, thanks to that stunning outfield catch by Rana. Anjum took over and cleaned up the tail. Here's the presentation.

Sangakkara: "The problem was we gave them 320. I don't think complacency was the problem. We've got to make sure we bowl a lot better to our fields. Umar finished things off well. Tharanga has shown a lot of intent, nice to see him find his groove."

Unfortunately we've lost pictures of the presentation.

Umar Akmal is the Man of the Match.

Thanks for your company. We'll see you again on Sunday for the 5th ODI, at the same venue, same time. Till then, it's goodbye!
