Sri Lanka 280 for 4 (Dilshan 119*, Jayawardene 53) beat Pakistan 204 (Azhar 96, Perera 6-44) by 76 runs
Tillakaratne Dilshan batted through the innings with a century to take Sri Lanka to 280. Azhar Ali looked set to match Dilshan's feat and nearly reached his maiden ODI ton. Ultimately though, it was Thisara Perera's six-wicket haul, aided by his own brilliant fielding, which helped Sri Lanka level the series after a disappointing showing on Thursday. Perera's efforts were all the more special because four of those wickets included top-order victims. In the process, he bagged the overall best bowling figures against Pakistan in one-dayers.
