Mohammad Hafeez has been named the Man of the Match for his hundred which set up the big score in the first place. That's all we have today. Join us in two days' time for the 4th ODI. Until then, farewell!
Overall, Pakistan have taken a 2-1 lead in the five-match series and would be pretty much looking to keep their guard on and not lose the series. They are not a very strong side and once put under pressure, can crumble easily. Watch out for Sri Lanka to come fighting back.
This time around, the Sri Lankan batsmen were aggressive, because of the demanding run-rate and lost wickets at crucial junctures.
The collapse begun so early that there was no looking back for them as they fell in a heap. Sri Lanka needed someone to keep scoring at a brisk rate.
End of a comprehensive victory for Pakistan and they will be much relieved with a confident win. After losing the toss, the pair of Shehzad and Hafeez put on a huge stand and after the former fell on 80. Hafeez bullied the bowlers and along with Misbah, took Pakistan to a massive 300 plus score.
