The 3rd ODI ended badly for Sri Lanka, whose cricket team were pummelled by 135 runs, but it was made worse by an outbreak of violence in the stands, which forced a half-hour suspension of play.

Rocks were thrown inside the south-eastern stand, and when offenders were evicted from the ground, projectiles were thrown from outside the stadium, through the back of the same, open stand.

One of these rocks made its way to the field, and match referee Javagal Srinath suspended play until the situation was brought under control by authorities.

Batting first, Pakistan scored 316 runs in their allotted 50 overs, while the Lankans were all out for only 181 runs in 41.1 overs.

Pakistan leads the 5-match series 2-1
