Sri Lanka 207 for 9 (Siriwardene 66) beat Pakistan 92 by 115 runs
Sri Lanka enjoyed another comfortable victory, thereby sealing their place in the final of the tri-series. Pakistan's capitulation to 92 in pursuit of 208 means they need to beat Bangladesh to join Sri Lanka.
Pakistan chose to field and reduced Sri Lanka to 15 for 3. Then a 66-run stand was formed between Hiruka Fernando (24) and Shashikala Siriwardene (66). Pakistan hit back with wickets but Sri Lanka's lower order got the total to 207 for 9.
Nain Abibi and Bismah Maharoof put on 35 in 10.3 overs, only for Pakistan to slump to 49 for 4. Fernando took three wickets, after which Suwini de Alwis and the rest of the Sri Lankan attack ran circles around the batting. Pakistan were all out in 33.3 overs.
