New Delhi: Pakistan got over their bilateral ODI series hangover after Ahmed Shehzad smashed 95 off 90 balls to help his side thrash a below-par Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the fourth one-day match in Colombo on Wednesday to clinch the five-match series.
This was a huge win for Pakistan after their 0-3 loss against Bangladesh earlier in ODIs. Mohammad Hafeez chipped in with 70 as the tourists surpassed Sri Lanka`s 256-9 in the 41st over at the Premadasa stadium to take a decisive 3-1 lead in the series.
The series win kept Azhar Ali`s Pakistan in contention for a place in the eight-nation Champions Trophy in England in 2017.
