Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the first Test in Galle today, to take the lead in the 3 match series.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah grabbed a career-best seven for 76 to skittle Sri Lanka for a paltry 206 in their 2nd innings just before tea on the 5th and final day.

Pakistan set a victory target of 90, and raced home in 11.2 overs with Mohammad Hafeez remaining unbeaten on 46 and Ahmed Shehzad on 43.

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne top-scored with 79, and Lahiru Thirimanne made 44. The Tests will be followed by five one-day internationals and two T20 matches.
