Pakistan have won by 33 runs, a sizable margin that will boost their net run-rate as well. They have a net run-rate of 1.65 and are in second place after Australia.

Younis Khan is the Man of the Match for his extremely well-paced 51 after Sri Lanka had rocked the Pakistan top order. That's it from us at Cricinfo today, this is George Binoy signing off, Cheers.
