Talha to Mathews. Yorker, middle stump no foot movement working, to mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Niazi, fielded by Rehman.

Mathews races through for the single and
Sri Lanka win by seven wickets. What an end to an unbelievable day of Test cricket. Sri Lanka have been excellent today and fully deserve the win, they bowled with purpose this morning and applied significant pressure to Pakistan. Pakistan got their tactics wrong today, they were too defensive this morning and when they lost quick wickets it put unnecessary pressure on the middle order. It was all set up for a grandstand finish and Mathews duly delivered to hit the winning runs. Sri Lanka go to Colombo one nil up.
