10.55 pm The five-ODI series is now level 1-1. A quite fantastic performance in the field from Sri Lanka. Malinga gave them the early wickets that set back Pakistan right at the start. Umar Akmal threatened to win the game for Pakistan but he fell to a rush of blood to the head. Afridi attacked briefly but was then run out by a terrific piece of fielding, and that was the body blow to Pakistan's chase. Nitin Sundar's bulletin will be updated shortly.
Biju: "Ironical, but victory margin for Sri Lanka = number of extras conceded by Pakistan!"
The Man of the Match, announced after 2365 other awards for every aspect of the game, is Lasith Malinga.
Misbah-ul-Haq: "I think the way they started, taking three early wickets, we were under pressure. Everyone fought well until it end, it was a bad day for us. It was just a matter of playing 50 overs. I am happy with the way we fought after losing three early wickets. The youngsters really performed."
Tillakaratne Dilshan: "We needed this win. Everyone played very good cricket. I got a start but threw my wicket. We needed to get a start and we got that today. We planned for 240 but we were short about 20 runs. The bowlers did a great job, especially with the dew."
That's it from us at ESPNcricinfo today, thank you for all your emails. Good night.
Another ten runs and Sri Lanka might be concerned ...
Momo: "No matter what side you support, you can't help but feel sorry for the young lad Akmal. Well played son!"
Umar Akmal has been sitting on the staircase to the dressing room for ages now. He has his pads on still and looks utterly disconsolate
Malinga's back ... this might not last much longer.
Cheema is the last man.
