Pakistan’s bowlers struggled to contain the Sri Lankan batsmen, and they were also unable to take early wickets in the chase. This allowed Sri Lanka to build a big total, which was too much for Pakistan to chase down.

Overall, Sri Lanka were the better team on the day, and they deserved their victory.
