Scorecard summary
Sri Lanka130/10(44.2 overs)
Pakistan134/6(44.4 overs)

That's it Pakistan win by 4 wickets. Razzaq played extremely well for his unbeaten 41 runs. It was the right move to send Akmal down the order. It was a close contest. It was a difficult track to bat. Pakistan held their nerves to win this. They now lead the series 1-0. The Man of the match is Abdul Razzaq.

That's it from the Second ODI, thanks for being with us, this is your commentator Binoy George signing off. Please join us again for the live coverage of the 3rd ODI on 21st of March at the SSC, Colombo. Until then it is bye from all of us here.
