Muhammad Sami took three wickets while Shahid Afridi grabbed two wickets.

Earlier, Pakistan scored a modest total of 122 with the help of a well played half century by Afridi. His 33-ball 52 was the only bright spot for the Pakistan side.

Afridi was declared man of the match.

Mohammad Hafeez won the toss and decided to bat first. But Pakistan was off to a very poor start when Ahmed Shehzad fell to Nuwan Kulasekara for only six in the third over. Khalid Latif was unluckily run out for just one in the fifth over.

Umar Akmal was trapped in front of the wickets by Kaushal Lokuarachchi in the 10th over, which left them reeling at 29 for three. Hafeez tried to build the inning with a 34-ball 24 but his innings came to an end in the 11th over.

Senior batsman Afridi and Shoaib Malik carried the inning to a respectable total.
